Healthcare

Over $35 Billion worth of goods are spoilt globally every year - most of it could be avoided with better cold chain monitoring.

In 2017, the cold-chain logistics spending was globally over $13 billion for biopharmaceutical goods alone - of which 20-40% is estimated to be damaged during shipping.

The healthcare industry has strict regulations and requirements for the shipping and storage of life-essential products. The reliable delivery of healthcare products is a matter of life and death, and damaged products or medicines can quickly cause life-threatening situations. 

The variables that need to be monitored within the supply chain logistics of the healthcare industry include everything from storage to transportation. This means that any vehicles or equipment used to transport or handle products must be suitable to prevent exposure to any conditions that can impact product quality.

Medicinal products themselves should be transported in the protective containers necessary to avoid the impact of weather, temperature changes and contamination—throughout the entire journey. These containers should also be appropriately labeled regarding the contents and required storage and handling conditions.

Any deviation such as temperature change, damage resulting in spoilt product, etc. that occurs during transport must be reported to both the distributor and the recipient. 

The Association of Finnish Pharmacies (AFP, Apteekkariliitto) recommends Logmore as the solution for shipment temperature monitoring. Our service has been developed in close cooperation with Finnish pharmacies by using the feedback from practical day-to-day operations to fine-tune both the service and the included instructions and guides. As a result, the Logmore service suits pharmaceutical needs excellently.
