Ocean transportation for life sciences: More reliable, more cost-effective
Advanced engineering brings powered, active control of temperature-sensitive shipments via ocean containers
Supply chain managers in life sciences, and their freight-forwarding logistics partners, look endlessly for cost-saving measures to provide more economical transportation. Counterpoised against that driver, however, is the need for high-quality, validated processes for ensuring the safety and efficacy of life-saving biopharma products.
For many years, this challenge has hindered the use of ocean freight for biopharma products transportation; delivery and transit times were too uncertain, among other operational factors. However, vendors of temperature-controlled equipment have responded to this challenge by significantly upgrading the capabilities of storage and transport equipment. Such is the case at Klinge Corporation, a leading provider of highly engineered ocean containers.
