Safety is a crucial aspect of any logistics cycle. This applies from storage to incoming goods, taking into account customs clearance, transport, distribution and so on. This is particularly relevant in the pharmaceutical, veterinary, cosmetics, fine chemicals, medical device, and food supplement sectors, where product quality and integrity are of vital importance for the health and wellbeing of people and, in the case of veterinary medicine, animals.
In these sectors, the supply chain is particularly complex due to the need to comply with strict safety and quality regulations, as well as the sensitivity of the products. It is essential to ensure that goods are stored properly, and that temperature and humidity conditions in warehouses and in transport are carefully monitored by professional teams to avoid any damage or deterioration.
What are the keys to safety in the logistics cycle?
- Proper storage: This must be carried out under appropriate conditions to ensure the integrity of the products, such as controlled temperature and humidity. Each of the goods must be correctly labelled. It is also essential to ensure that products are stored and customised in separate areas to avoid cross-contamination.
- Appropriate transport: Whether by land, air or sea, products must be transported in suitable containers and vehicles that are designed to maintain the appropriate temperature and humidity conditions, as well as to protect their fragility and mitigate their hazardous nature. It is also important to have traceability systems in place to ensure the safety and integrity of products during transport. In all cases, the transport and handling of goods must be carried out by qualified staff.
- Goods reception: The reception of goods must be carried out under appropriate and controlled conditions, in order to avoid any possible damage or contamination of the products or a break in the cold chain. Having professionals who are qualified in this work will facilitate the task efficiently, quickly, and safely.
- Supply chain quality: It is important to have good supply chain management, with high standards of quality control. This provides security in relation to the condition and authenticity of the products, as well as full compliance with the regulations and standards in force.
