Temperature controlled logistics is responsible for the storage, conservation and transport of all cargo sensitive to atmospheric conditions and that need to maintain a certain temperature for proper preservation. This is essential for many pharmaceutical products, since drugs in poor condition can have serious consequences for health and well-being.

Many of the pharmaceutical and biological medicines sold today are extremely sensitive to the conditions in which they are packaged, shipped and stored. Therefore, temperature variations can affect the quality of the delivered product. Temperature controlled logistics helps to improve your distribution process, which must be validated to ensure that there is no negative impact on product safety, efficacy or quality.

Types of temperature controlled logistics

There are different categories in for temperature controlled logistics.

  • Refrigerated vehicles. They are conventional vehicles that have thermostatically controlled cargo compartments, which allow maintaining the desired temperature range. In addition, refrigerated vehicles often come in the form of small vans and trucks, which are usually equipped with electronic control systems to maintain the temperature.
  • Passive shipping container. They are storage containers that use a combination of insulated and electronic materials to maintain a specific temperature range. While they do not require human or external manipulation to function, they can only maintain a temperature range for a set period of time before they expire, which makes them an effective option for short trips. In addition, these containers are often necessary to mitigate any potential damage to the transported cargo. Therefore they are necessary for road transport.
  • Active shipping system. These are similar to passive shipping containers, but have a much greater reach. Active shipping systems are used in airfreight and sea freight transport. They are large thermostatically controlled cargo containers that act effectively. In addition, in airfreight transport, they are usually powered through internal batteries or an external electrical source and maintain energy through large cooling fans and heating mechanisms. Meanwhile, sea freight active shipping systems generally work with the power supply on board ships.

Logistics process and cold chain:

Logistics is the management of the flow of goods from origin to destination, fulfilling, in every moment, the customer’s requirements. The process affects security, transportation, inventory, storage, information management and packaging. The process includes:

  • Load of the supply in the facilities of origin
  • Storage with the right conditions: controlled or room temperatures
  • Transportation: with refrigerated or ambient trucks, cargo containers etc.
  • Delivery to the final destination that may have different profiles: retail, markets, factory, ports, airport …

Throughout the process it is necessary to monitor and control the temperature and sometimes the GPS location.
