“Not only have we managed to achieve more than 20% uptick of pharma shipment for the first eight months of 2019 and leveraged around 22,500 tonnes of pharmaceutical products but we have significantly improved our service quality through continuous personnel training, collaboration with like-minded certified partners, and by following the path of digitalization to achieve higher pharmaceutical handling excellence.”

Apart from reliable partners, the company counts on up-to-date cold-chain special packaging solutions to maintain the required temperature for pharmaceutical products and is cooperating with the leading manufacturers of temperature-controlled containers. Additional monitoring is guaranteed by data loggers, TPED devices and data-collection equipment embedded in sophisticated containers.
