How Sustainability Efforts Change Your Supply Chain For The Better
Going green is moving from a clichéd corporate phrase to simply the way business is run. Companies around the globe continue to make significant investments in sustainability that benefit not only the environment, but also the customers they serve. What does green mean for specialty logistics — and why does it matter for your supply chain? World Courier explores a few of the most critical questions shippers are asking when it comes to eco-friendly innovation.
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
How To Reduce The Complexity And Mitigate Risk In Qualifying Active Temperature Controlled Systems
Every shipment of life science products is precious cargo, not only to the shipper, but to the patient at the end of the chain. That transportation process must be strictly qualified to ensure that the product is not lost to damage or spoilage. Even with the most careful planning, losses may occur due to human error.
Can Stability Data Save The Life Of Your Products, Preventing A Loss Of Millions?
At the end of a complex pharmaceutical supply chain, a product has seen many forms, labs, cities, containers, boxes, docks, trucks, storage facilities, data loggers and finally one patient. If the product is temperature controlled, how do you know it’s been kept in correct temperature and quality conditions from source of APIs, to manufacture, through multiple legs of distribution to patient? Many companies today haven’t asked themselves this question yet. But the regulators are.
Losing Everything: Are Chart Recorders Enough?
Perhaps, unfortunately, this scenario is all too familiar: You arrive at work on Monday morning and hear an alarm sounding from your refrigerator. You walk over to your fridge to check the chart recorder and see abnormal spikes on the paper graph, but a detailed analysis by quality control personnel is required to take any action whatsoever. You find out that the chart doesn’t show enough data for a quality-based decision, so the product inside has to be discarded. Panic sets in. The monetary value of the supplies pales in comparison to the fact that patients today are relying on the medicine inside.
Protecting Products To Save Lives: Securing The Pharma Supply Chain
Over the past decade the world market for pharmaceuticals has nearly doubled, reaching a total value of approximately $1 trillion. While the industry will continue to develop, its days of consistent high growth appear to be over – a casualty of multiple factors, including healthcare spending cost control efforts, the demise of the ‘blockbuster’ drug and the rise of generics.
Taking The Sting Out Of A Difficult Shipping Problem For A Vaccine
A client needed to move malaria-infected mosquitoes across the United States as part of a clinical trial for a new malaria vaccine. Mosquitoes, particularly those infected with malaria, are considered highly infectious, so this unusual shipment presented numerous challenges.
Clinical Trial Logistics In Africa: Ensuring Quality, Compliance And Control
Today’s Africa has increasingly become a source of fascination for pharmaceutical researchers drawn to the study and control of both communicable diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS as well as diseases of the developed world like cancer, diabetes, hypertension and chronic respiratory disease.

Enabling Oral Delivery of Sensitive Molecules
By eliminating the need for enteric coating, ECDDT can enable the oral delivery of sensitive molecules, such as nucleotides and peptides, biological products such as vaccines, and live biotherapeutic products (LBPs), which can degrade at the high temperatures or can be sensitive to aqueous coating solution associated with coating processes.
