Clinical trials help researchers to evaluate the safety and efficacy of new drugs, medical devices, and treatments. They involve the transport of sensitive materials, such as biological research samples and medical investigation products that require temperature and time-sensitive handling. It is, therefore, important to ensure that these shipments are secure so that they arrive at their destination safely and efficiently.
In this blog post, our clinical trial shipment experts will discuss the importance of secure clinical trial shipments and provide tips for ensuring safe transport of sensitive materials.
Safeguarding The Transport of Your Clinical Trail Shipments.
Choose the right courier service.
When it comes to transporting clinical trial shipments, choosing the right courier service is essential. You should look for a service that has experience in handling sensitive materials and has the necessary permits, certification documents, and licenses required by regulatory authorities. At FET Logistics, we have a dedicated clinical logistics department focused solely on transporting temperature-sensitive materials. Our drivers are trained to handle these materials safely, and they have the necessary documentation to ensure compliance with standards.
Ensure proper packaging.
Proper packaging is essential to ensure the safety of clinical trial shipments during transport. The packaging should be designed to protect the materials from extreme temperatures, humidity, shock, or any other external factors that could damage them. The packaging should also be labelled with clear instructions on handling, storage, and disposal of the materials. Our team offers packaging options that are specifically designed for clinical trial shipments, and we ensure that all shipments are labelled correctly.
Use temperature-controlled shipping containers.
Temperature-controlled shipping containers are essential for ensuring the safety and efficacy of clinical trial shipments. These containers maintain the required temperature range during transport, which helps to protect the materials from damage or degradation. At FET Logistics, we offer a range of temperature-controlled shipping containers that can be used for clinical trial shipments. We also offer 24/7 monitoring services to ensure that the containers remain within the required temperature range.
Implement secure transport procedures.
Secure transport procedures are essential for ensuring the safety of clinical trial shipments during transport. It is important to ensure that the materials are transported securely and that they are delivered directly to the recipient. We offer in-house CCTV escort services to monitor the progress of clinical trial shipments and ensure that they are delivered on time and to the correct recipient. We also use secure transport procedures to ensure that the materials are protected from theft, damage or loss during transport.
Monitor the progress of shipments.
It is important to monitor the progress of clinical trial shipments during transport to ensure that they are delivered on time and to the correct recipient. At FET Logistics, we offer real-time tracking services that allow you to monitor the progress of your shipments from the moment they leave your facility until they reach their destination. This helps to improve communication between all parties involved and reduces the risk of delays or errors during transport.
