The challenges of pharmaceutical transport
Dramatic changes around the world have underscored the importance – and challenges – of ensuring that medicines reach the people who need them. Through industry-leading services, solutions and expertise across all aspects of the cold chain, Carrier is moving the cold chain forward to help preserve, protect and extend the world’s supply of medicine. For some medicines to meet regulatory requirements and to be most effective, they must adhere to strict temperature controls and monitoring.
Refrigeration has a critical role to play in the safe distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine due to the temperature-sensitivity of the various vaccines and number of handoffs required from production to person. Based on decades of experience, Carrier’s Refrigeration segment is a world leader in helping to preserve and protect pharmaceuticals and supporting safe vaccine distribution.
“We are working with a range of customers, distributors, pharma companies and governmental departments to help with their safe vaccine distribution,” said David Appel, President, Carrier Refrigeration. “We’re making things happen and are excited to be part of the larger solution.”
