VIDEO: How Are Manufacturer Expectations Of Specialty Logistics Companies Changing In Asia-Pac?
The expectations have changed in APAC for manufacturers; it has been pretty drastic. Namely, if I could pick an example on the temperature-controlled shipments, a lot of investigational tracks are shipped around APAC in plus-2 to plus-8 degrees centigrade. This in itself poses a challenge to maintain no deviation of temperature for these particular shipments.
Mainly it is due to the environmental conditions in APAC. For example, you could have a high of 40 degrees centigrade in India, as opposed to a negative 10 in China. So this poses tremendous a challenge in terms of maintaining and not having excursions when the shipments travel from India to China.
