With the reach of organizations expanding rapidly and globalization at its peak, transportation of goods and services from one corner of the world to another may seem hassle-free. But is it truly hassle-free?
Well, not so much for the transportation of time and temperature controlled supplies. Time and temperature-controlled supplies are the ones that require a certain degree of temperature or a time-frame to be maintained. This requirement is not only to be ensured during its storage but also while transporting the supplies from the manufacturer to the distributor and then finally to the end customer.
The distribution and warehouse management system of a brand plays an important role in ensuring this. Pharmaceutical supplies make heavy use of cold-chain transportation and for this reason, vigilant management of their products is essential and cannot be compromised. The transport management of these supplies must be strong enough to prevent temperature excursions throughout the transportation process.
Time/temperature-sensitive products are prone to getting spoilt or damaged during cold chain transportation. To avoid this, supply chain providers must maintain a cold-chain visibility system. Cold-chain visibility through digital trackers can help monitor real-time temperatures and provide location-based insights. Logging-in data from time-to-time using automated tools is essential. Apart from this, a few solutions can be applied such as:
