A controlled-room-temperature shipment being transported to Shanghai was at risk of long delays, quarantine and even disposal. Did the products make it to their destination?
A pharmaceutical shipper asked its courier to supply a thermal shipping system to move controlled ambient product (+15°C to +25°C) from Belgium to Shanghai.
The Chinese clearance process for the import of pharmaceutical products can take up to two weeks, with previous shipments having been exposed to high external ambient temperatures. In addition products had been quarantined and some had been disposed of, having been deemed to have been outside of acceptable temperature specifications and therefore spoiled.
