The considerations that accompany cold chain distribution at the commercial level are plentiful. The increased volume, added complexity, and logistical challenges that define the space require companies to carefully consider the thermal packaging solutions that best serve their needs.

Differences in volume necessitate differences in efficiency. Whether it’s the freezing and preparation of phase-change material, the day-to-day management of a comprehensive shipment chain, or possessing the infrastructure, staff, and track-and-trace strategy necessary to optimize efficiency, pharmaceutical companies must manage a wide range of variables in order to optimize their shipping strategy commercially.

As more and more new drugs require some form of temperature control, having a packaging supplier with the expertise, support, and flexibility to respond to new regulations, evolving temperature requirements for bespoke biologics and personalized medicine, and real-world shipping and handling constraints is key to achieving long-term success. Managing the logistics of shipping from beginning to end – from conditioning to reverse logistics to refurbishment – is best achieved by partnering with the right supplier right out of the gate.
