Specialized logistics solutions for the pharmaceutical industry

UPS’s customers benefit from the world’s largest integrated, multi-modal delivery network, which provides an uninterrupted supply chain. Our specialized logistics solutions get the right products to the right recipients at the right time and in the right condition.

Temperature-sensitive air-freight shipping

Our global temperature-sensitive air-freight service, UPS Temperature True®, is designed for the pharmaceutical and life science industry and is based on precise, measurable operating procedures. UPS provides container solutions and routing options with day and time-definite options to prevent temperature excursions.

Hybrid cooling system shipping containers for temperature control

The PharmaPort™ 360 is our latest solution for temperature-sensitive shipments. This fully validated and tested container, with its unique hybrid cooling system, offers maximum protection and allows customers to take advantage of more routing options, providing further possibilities for market penetration and business growth.

Packaging for temperature-sensitive shipments

UPS Temperature True packaging simplifies the process of choosing the right packaging solution for temperature sensitive products. Based on shipping lane analytics, UPS offers expert advice and provides customers with an optimized vendor neutral packaging solution to protect valuable shipments. The service also extends to monitoring devices that allow for continuous shipment monitoring and the provision of an auditable trail of temperatures.

Proactive intervention service to maintain product integrity

UPS Proactive Response®, a 24/7 proactive intervention service, helps healthcare companies ensure product integrity while reducing costs associated with products that go outside their temperature range. The contract service alerts customers of any potential delivery delays and includes proactive resolutions by UPS, based on predefined contingency plans.

Combined delivery and collection services

UPS Returns® is an industry-leading service with options that provide enhanced control over reverse logistics and an improved customer experience. The UPS Returns Exchange service, for example, provides for the delivery of a new item and collection of an old one at the same time. The entire return, including a shipping label, packing and collection, takes place during a single visit.

Delivery to specific hospital departments

UPS can also deliver to a single point within a sprawling hospital campus. With UPS In-room Delivery, critical shipments can be delivered to a specific department for immediate refrigeration, storage, or use.

UPS Healthcare customer service

Changing experiences, changing lives. Through our global network and logistics expertise we help our customers better respond to patient needs and take advantage of market opportunities around the world.
