As you know, all medicines have certain storage rules. And we follow them because it’s important for your health. But attention and following the rules are important not only when it comes to storage but also production and transportation.

Delivery of the meds is a transportation of the shipment that requires following certain rules. Only special types of transport can deliver pharmaceutical products. If you often deal with big amounts of meds, you’d better work with specialized companies. The experienced workers pay attention to the proper distribution and logistics as well as suitable temperature regime and a route. Thanks to this your shipment will avoid delays during the run. 

Transportation of the meds refers to the category of the replacement of fragile shipments. So it is necessary to be ready to deal with many requirements. The main aim is to deliver the meds without the loss of their characteristics and with the preservation of their properties. Specialists must control not only the state of the liquid meds but also the package integrity, quantity, and quality of the shipment.

Specialists of the logistics companies know that they must follow the main rules.

  1. Transportation of the meds is possible only by a certain type of transport. 
  2. The vehicle must be clean. It must have no smells. Before the run, the vehicle must be given sanitization.

  4. The meds must have a reliable productive package. It must meet all sanitation norms. If the cargo is placed in the refrigerators, loading is possible at any weather conditions.
  5. Placement. All pharmaceutical products are placed with gaps and spaces. Fragile cargo needs to be fixed and marked. It is also important to pay attention to the order of placement because lots of medicines are stored in a glass package.

As for the trucks, specialized companies use refrigerators. The main goal of its use is to keep the needed temperature during the run. Refrigerator equipment can be installed on the different trucks which are adapted for the trucking of fragile cargo. The advantages of the refrigerator are the protection from pollution, quarantine zone, autonomic generator, and the absence of precipitation.
