Manage risks during pharmaceutical transport

Maintaining the quality and integrity of medical and biological products during transport is critical for pharmaceutical manufacturers and for public health and patient safety.
As most medical and biological products require a temperature controlled environment at all stages of manufacturing and distribution, the control of storage and transportation temperatures is vital in maintaining the quality and effectiveness of medicines.
At Thermo King we understand that if the quality of pharmaceutical product shipments is compromised, the risk is more than loss of cargo - it can compromise the health and well being of patients. PharmaSolutions, a comprehensive and dedicated expertise platform from Thermo King, addresses the precise needs of the pharmaceutical industry by delivering applications know-how and a broad spectrum of services.
PharmaSolutions services are delivered individually, or select services can be combined into a PharmaKare service contract customised to your pharmaceutical transportation needs.

What is Good Distribution Practice (GDP) for pharmaceutical products?


The objective of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) guidelines is to ensure that the high level of product quality, determined by good manufacturing practices, is maintained throughout the distribution chain. This extends beyond the transport vehicles used to take pharmaceuticals (such as APIs) and medical components from the manufacturing facility to distributors and wholesalers. It must also ensure compliant delivery to hospitals and pharmacies.

It is mandatory for distributors to comply with the European Union guidelines on good distribution practice of medicinal products for human use.

We also offer a range of insulated containers for professional applications.







Applications include:
pharmaceutical, medical, sampling of blood, water and many other applications within the food industry.

Compressor cooling containers are the flexible and convenient solution for the professionals who have to transport perishable goods on board standard cars or vans with respect to the food hygiene standards. The heavy duty containers are made of rotationally moulded polyethylene and can be cleaned easily according to 93/43/EEC (HACCP). Operating voltage is 12-24V DC and 100-240V AC, 50-60Hz. The refrigerant gas is CFC free R134a. The digital temperature controller allows an easy setting of the required internal temperature and the control of the true internal temperature.
