In an increasingly globalised world, the pharmaceutical, veterinary, cosmetics, fine chemicals, medical devices and food supplements sectors are constantly evolving and expanding. These sectors are looking for new international markets to boost their growth and seize new business opportunities.
In this sense, internationalising logistics becomes essential to ensure efficient and timely distribution of products worldwide, while complying with the specific regulations of each sector. To achieve this, a series of tips can be applied to help companies take their first steps in the logistics process.
- Know and comply with international regulations: Every sector has specific regulations and standards that must be complied with when exporting or importing products. It is important to familiarise yourself with the regulations of the countries in which you wish to develop your internationalisation. This includes having the necessary certifications, complying with labelling and packaging requirements, and maintaining the appropriate records and documentation for cross-border transport.
- Rely on expert partners: When internationalising logistics, it is essential to have the advice and support of a logistics partner who knows the specifics of your sector, be it pharmaceuticals, veterinary, cosmetics, fine chemicals, medical devices or food supplements. These experts can offer you specific solutions for the handling of sensitive products, temperature-controlled transport and compliance with quality and safety standards.
- Establish a safe and efficient supply chain: Product integrity and safety is of paramount importance, especially in sensitive sectors such as those mentioned above. It is vital to establish a safe and secure supply chain, with rigorous controls at every stage. It is helpful to have monitoring and quality control systems in place to ensure traceability and avoid problems such as counterfeiting and adulteration of products.
- Adapt storage and transport processes: International logistics often works with products that require special storage and transport conditions. This is why, in order to maintain the cold chain, it is necessary to have adequate facilities and equipment, such 4 as temperature-controlled warehouses, real-time tracking and monitoring systems, and refrigerated vehicles.
