Temperature controlled packaging finds success in Asia

With the knowledge that clinical trials were expected to grow in the Asian region, Cool Logistics set up a manufacturing and distribution center in Chakan, Pune in India in 2010. Today, clinical trials and 90% of patented drugs in the world being manufactured in the region have lead to success for the manufacturer.

According to Packaging Europe, Clive Wheeldon, Chief Executive Officer for Cool Logistics India, recently stated: “South Asia brings with it its obviously challenging climatic conditions and the growing need for the clients’ product protection during transportation. Add these to the increasing scrutiny of the regulatory authorities, and we see a much higher demand for quality packaging in the region that needs to eliminate temperature excursions. For our clients, the high cost and potential loss of market share in having to re-test or at worst destroy their product means that temperature excursions are no longer an option.”

This week in Shanghai at Partnerships in Clinical Trials Asia, clinical trial executives from around the world to gather and discuss the current world of clinical trials taking place in Asia.  A specific focus of the event will be to on clinical trial operations and optimizing productivity and speed to market while ensuring quality by hearing first hand from leaders in the region how to streamline logistics.  For more information on the event, download the agenda.  If you'd like to join us, register today and mention code XP1775BLOG to save 15% off the standard rate.
