Risk assessment

End-to-end control

End-to-end control

With our own warehouses and air charter network, as well as an extensive network of ocean and road transport providers, we are able to have full control of cold chain logistics – from origin to destination.

Different temperature zones

Secure storage and transport at all temperatures including:

Reducing risk at every stage

Our cold chain logistics solutions are managed using the online platform Validaide. This is one of the industry’s most sophisticated subcontractor management and lane assessment programs. It aggregates data from over 2,500 trade lanes to simplify the process of qualifying suppliers and make risk identification more efficient.

Air, sea or road?

Whichever method or methods of transport you choose for your products, you can be sure that they are handled in full compliance with regulations and the required temperature – even during breaks in the journey.

  • Air

    Using our air charter network and commercial carriers, you can benefit from dedicated areas for handling, storage and transshipment of temperature sensitive cargoes with short tarmac times and cold chain capabilities for your goods.
  • Sea

    If you need to transport your goods by sea while maintaining the exact temperature conditions your products require, we can offer cold chain transport that reduces both cost and carbon footprint.
  • Road

    Finally, road transport with temperature-controlled trucks can be used for the first or final leg of the journey to ensure the cold chain is maintained from pick-up to delivery.

Real-time monitoring and reporting

Throughout its journey, you can see the exact status of your consignment, including its real-time temperature, humidity and other critical parameters, using the dashboard of our global visibility solution. This solution can be set up to notify you of any temperature changes on the journey. It can also be linked to any CCTV monitoring systems.
With this control and security in place, you can have full confidence in our cold chain logistics services and the temperature integrity of your valuable pharmaceutical consignments.
