You’ve invested a lot of time, money and effort into your product, so choosing the right shipping company is a must if you want to protect your product’s integrity. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) medications need to be stored at specific temperatures to maintain their effectiveness. Heat and high temperatures can render some medications inert, permanently alter the consistency of creams of balms and render non-drug items like condoms totally useless. Medicine doesn’t fare much better in cold conditions; some compounds can break down and the consistency of gels ad liquids can be destroyed if they are frozen. While shipping at an optimal temperature is a must, other factors come into play when shipping an expensive or controlled medicine; at Road Scholar, our goal is to protect your product in a variety of ways and ensure that it always arrives on time and in pristine condition. Here’s how we do it:
5 Benefits of Using Road Scholar for your Pharmaceutical Shipping Needs
Eliminate Variances in Temperature that Could Damage your Freight
Keeping medications and medical supplies at an optimal and safe temperature from the point of origin is a must; storing items that have already been altered by temperature at the right conditions won’t help medication regain its correct consistency or effectiveness. Our temperature protect service is designed to keep your shipment at an optimal temperature until it arrives at its destination; your Road shipping options include frozen, refrigerated and heated trucks so you can choose the perfect setting for your product. Shipping at the right temperature and into the right environment ensures that your product arrives in pristine and viable condition and that it is ready for the end user.
Innovative Control Systems
Your shipment is in good hands from the moment we accept it, and our integrated control systems allow us to easily track your delicate pharmaceuticals and verify that the conditions on board are always optimal for your product. 24/7 access to shipping and temperature details make it easy to get your product where it needs to go and to verify that it is kept at the right temperature every step of the way.
Geofencing for Added Security
If you are shipping a controlled substance or one that is a high risk for theft, our geofencing service is designed to give you peace of mind.
