Global logistics firm Kuehne + Nagel has rolled out KN PharmaChain, a product tailored to the specific needs of the pharmaceutical and health-care industry.

KN PharmaChain offers door-to-door temperature control, a 24-hour alert system, optional wireless temperature measuring, and best practice (GxP) standards for facilities, working processes and training programs, the Switzerland-headquartered company said in a March 27 statement.

“KN PharmaChain is Kuehne + Nagel’s response to the pharmaceutical industry’s requirements for effective and proper airfreight transportation solutions. If not correctly handled and transported, pharmaceuticals efficacy may be compromised or rendered completely ineffective, resulting in serious and costly consequences, in particular in case of high-value, mission-critical and temperature-sensitive products,” the company added.

KN PharmaChain offers four service levels, depending on the grade of specific temperature-control requirements and special handling demands of each shipment. Full-risk assessments of carrier partners and transport lanes are conducted on all routes within the KN PharmaChain network comprising of 58 stations. Comprehensive best practice (GxP) policies apply for staff, working processes, and facilities, and by the end of 2012, all locations will be fully GxP-compliant, said the company.

Temperature visibility is an additional option, to be provided by active wireless sensors which record and transmit the shipment temperature throughout the entire transport chain.
