SFS Pharma Logistics, a specialty courier company, is using BlueBox Systems’ air freight tracking platform for a comprehensive view of the condition and location of pharmaceutical transports.
With its own branches in the whole Asia-Pacific region, Singapore-based SFS Pharma Logistics is the market leader in Asia specialising in the transport of temperature-controlled goods.
With a lot of strict requirements in the pharmaceutical market, many pharmaceutical and biotechnical products rely on a certain cold chain.
For very sensitive products, environmental conditions like humidity, light, oxygen, shocks, pressure, vibrations, and X-rays must be considered and controlled during transportation by truck, rail, ship or air freight.
These quality risks during transportation must be minimised as far as possible, and so BlueBox Systems says it is very important to implement modern technologies for robust supply chains; after all, the access of visibility data and its analysis provide necessary insights so that supply chains can be optimised.
The air freight solution of BlueBox Systems contributes to meet the demanding requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.
Martin Schulze, chief executive of BlueBox Systems, said: “Our solution combines state-of-the-art technologies and advanced data analytics to provide a comprehensive view of the condition and the location of pharmaceutical transports.
“Due to our data, pharmaceutical logistic companies are able to track the temperature and the condition of the transports, for example. By doing so, they can avoid costly damage or delays.
“Furthermore, they can also proactively intervene in the transport progress – thanks to predictive analytics of the transport data – in order to deliver products faster while preventing delays.
“In addition, data sharing along the supply chain ensures more trust between all parties.”
Guan Zhengyi, regional business process manager at SFS Pharma Logistics, said: “When transporting temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical goods, we rely on extensive use of technology to ensure a seamless monitoring and transparency.
“By integrating BlueBox Systems‘ data into our system, we now offer our customers an even better visibility of their transports.”
