CC-Pharma introduces active temperature control for all of its sensitive pharmaceuticals
Despite cost pressure: in order to ensure product quality and increase customer satisfaction, one of Germany's five largest importers of pharmaceuticals has chosen to co-operate with trans-o-flex ThermoMed
Until now, CC-Pharma had commissioned two different service providers with the transportation of its temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals. Those products that had to be transported at a temperature range of between 2 °C and 8 °C were passively cooled, using additional packaging and cooling elements. "trans-o-flex ThermoMed's actively controlled network makes it possible to ensure optimum quality without this additional packaging. And: the return and disposal of packaging material and cooling elements is no longer necessary", says Carsten Glos, Managing Director of trans-o-flex ThermoMed. Instead, the handling and transportation of the goods takes places using exclusively temperature-controlled warehouses and vehicles.
"Even though we managed to simplify our logistic process, e.g. by reducing the packaging, the conversion to active temperature control was associated with an increase in costs", explains Dr Weppelmann. "However, the documented quality with which we deliver our products to pharmacies, hospital pharmacies and hospital suppliers more than justifies this investment. All parties involved are on the safe side and we can give top priority to the satisfaction of our customers". It is not least for this reason that CC-Pharma also selected trans-o-flex ThermoMed's Time-definite service, thus ensuring that all shipments are delivered by noon. "Especially for pharmacies, this is an important aspect because the end consumers get their medicine on the same day."
