Sophisticated Technology Allows For Just-In-Time VIP Shippers Inventory Management And Fulfillment.
A large international Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization needed to ensure the viability of high-risk shipments from their global headquarters to the clinical sites worldwide, including geographically and logistically challenging countries.
Shipments were transported using Vacuum Insulated Packaging (VIP) Systems to ensure minimal risk of temperature excursions. The units had to be strategically stored globally so that they could be dispatched on a same-day basis.
- Quick designed a program allowing the client's VIP units to be stored and fulfilled on a Just-In-Time (JIT) basis, with same day dispatch of shipments
- Dedicated Quick temperature controlled facilities were designed, mapped and qualified according to EU GDP guidelines and strategically placed in Ireland, Australia and Singapore
- VIP units were stored and conditioned under the manufacturer's strict instructions for the specific temperature ranges required: +2° to +8° C, +15° to +25° C, and -25° to-15° C
- The Inventory Management Software, developed by Quick's IT team, provided the customer with access to inventory data, including shipment conditioning status and availability
- The software also allowed the customer to track shippers in transit, monitor the actual time the package was valid from pack-out time, and calculate time from pack-out to expiration ensuring product integrity trough transit
- Units were transported in an expedited manner, with same day dispatch, reducing turn around times and accelerating delivery to most locations worldwide by at least 24 hours from previous industry methods.
