UPS pharmaceutical cold chain solution

London, UK: UPS will offer an air freight container for temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals, vaccines and biologics. The PharmaPort 360 service enables near real-time monitoring and maintaining product temperatures in extreme outside conditions.

Mark Davis, product manager, UPS Healthcare Logistics says: “Amid the tremendous surge of temperature-sensitive therapies coming to market, it’s critical to have the most reliable solutions in place to help ensure the safe supply of healthcare products while also driving cost and operational efficiencies for healthcare manufacturers.”

Manufactured by Cool Containers, LLC for UPS, the PharmaPort 360 exceeds healthcare industry standards for temperature-sensitive compliance during transport. The PharmaPort 360 sustains its protective temperature range for more than 100 hours and will hold critical 2-8°C temperatures fopr38% longer than current dry-ice container solutions.

The PharmaPort 360 has sensors to monitor shipment condition and a GPS location to transmit this data GSM a standard global cellular network. Agents proactively monitor the container for select “heartbeats” such as internal and external temperatures, near real-time location and battery life. When alerts are triggered indicating a potential risk, UPS agents can intervene with pre-established contingency plans to rescue a shipment in distress and prevent product loss.

“Product losses from temperature excursions and mounting scrutiny from regulatory authorities are pressuring healthcare companies to strengthen supply chain compliance and gain more control through shipment data,” Davis added. “Having the information to prove that the integrity of a vaccine or human tissue has been preserved in-transit, for example, is almost as critical as the contents of the package.”
