NACEX, Logista’s express parcel and documentation delivery company, has extended its added-value services aimed at the pharmaceutical and para-pharmaceutical sector by means of a new Premium delivery, which guarantees that the temperature is kept at 2ºC-8ºC.
This service is an addition to the one currently offered by NACEX.pharma 15ºC-25ºC, and aims to provide a response to the needs of those clients that have a strict requirement to maintain the temperature for thermolabile products (2ºC-8ºC): sensitive medicines (vaccines, cytostatic agents, biological products), expensive products, and sensitive and special operations such as clinical trials, home deliveries, samples, etc.
Deliveries by means of Passive Cooling in Reusable Isothermal Packaging
NACEX.pharma 2ºC-8ºC allows the delivery to be made by means of passive cooling, with the use of reusable isothermal packaging that guarantees the temperature is kept between 2ºC and 8ºC, during the whole journey to the consignee, using the NACEX.pharma network (guaranteeing deliveries at 0830 hrs, 1000 hrs, 1200 hrs, and on Saturdays). The service covers the mainland, islands, and Ceuta-Melilla.
Each of the shipments made using the isothermal packaging contain probes that are calibrated on an annual basis and enable continuous, online, and on-time temperature monitoring, ensuring that the GDPs (Good Distribution Practices) main requirement for the Distribution of Medicines for Human Use is complied with, which is to be able to demonstrate the temperature of a shipment clearly at all times.
The packaging has been designed with a single configuration for both summer and winter and has been validated in accordance with the sector’s requirements, subjected to temperature profiles that are typical of the climate on the mainland and islands. In addition, the environmental impact of each shipment is reduced, due to the fact that the packaging is reusable, thereby contributing to the commitment to sustainability by the company and its clients.
NACEX.pharma 2ºC–8ºC provides the possibility of optimizing the sector’s operational processes, by positioning the already prepared containers (correct temperature and configuration) at origin (CRO, hospital and laboratory warehouses, etc.) for the picking package to be inducted and handed over to the driver for shipment.
When the shipment finally reaches its destination, and the consignee has checked its temperature by means of the driver’s mobile app, delivery of the order is made and the container is returned in order to be checked and prepared for use again.
Stringent delivery at 2ºC-8ºC is achieved using this solution, eliminating all external impact on the temperature of the shipment.
Information on the shipment’s position at the location is provided and maintenance of the temperature conditions during transport is guaranteed.
Furthermore, warehousing space is freed up in the client’s facilities and preparation of the isothermal packaging is eliminated from their operations.
NACEX strengthens its commitment to the Environment, by avoiding the generation of waste by using reusable packaging, investing in the procurement of electric vehicles for deliveries in the main cities, reporting CO2 emissions for every one of the shipments (ISO 140064), and being certified with ISO 14001 for its environmental management.
