Many risk factors impact the products that pass through the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain and temperature excursions are a major one. While these risks can be adequately mitigated, many are out of the shipper’s direct control.

Then the firm must forge solid working relationships with partners in the supply chain to work together as one cohesive team.
The five steps outlined in a recent article published by Pharmaceutical Outsourcing can be implemented with minimal effort at little to no cost to the business. Those tasked with the safe transport of temperature-controlled medicinal products must strive to control as much of the supply chain as possible by continuously strengthening relationships with supply chain partners in order to appropriately mitigate potential risks as a team.
