The quality and the integrity of medicinal products can be affected by a lack of adequate control of temperature, hygiene and security. To this end, the European Commission has published guidelines on Good Distribution Practice (GDP) of medicinal products for human use in the form of a Commission Guideline (2013/C 343/01). We fully recognise and have vast experience in dealing with the requirements of these complex standards, which are managed in the UK by the MHRA (the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency).
CoolKit’s experience for refrigerated vehicles with the Pharmaceutical market includes our customer AAH Pharmaceuticals, a fleet of more than 900 vehicles that provides wholesale distribution for Lloyds Pharmacy. Our design for them has been specifically tailored for their operation and it was honoured at the Motor Transport Awards 2016 as the outright winner of the Technical Excellence Award.
Often of primary interest to all our customers in the medicinal products industry is the importance of uniformity of the temperature in the load area, to ensure that none of the product is compromised by poor temperature management. Our refrigerated vehicles have gone through rigorous temperature mapping to confirm their suitability for this application. Also, valuable to our customers, is our knowledge of monitoring, recording and alarming equipment, which often incorporates video recording and telemetry to provide the added benefits of live GPS vehicle positioning and GSM connectivity.
We are very happy to consult with our customers at length and without obligation, before moving on to produce CAD visualisations of our products, all prior to any production. This way you can be certain of what you are going to get in terms of mass, dimension and overall specification and go on to enjoy optimum productivity from your delivery fridge vans.
