Exciting times for the Cool Chain Association as two new members have joined the group to contribute to the group’s mission of improving the temperature-controlled supply chain and creating a more sustainable future for the industry.
Switzerland-based Lamprecht Pharma Logistics and France-based Logfret are the latest members to join the CCA. Lamprecht Pharma Logistics, a logistics solution provider for pharmaceuticals, and Logfret, an international freight forwarding company offering digital solutions, both have a dedicated focus on optimising cool chain solutions within their supply chains, the group said.
Logfret has developed digital freight solution NEOLink, which allows users to request and receive multiple rate quotes, track shipments online, analyse metrics, and view inventory in real time.
Lamprecht Pharma Logistics meanwhile offers comprehensive logistics solutions, including good distribution practice (GDP) warehousing, ambient and cool chain solutions, global GDP freight services by air, truck, sea, and courier, as well as data logger management.
Together with another member PPECB, the CCA recently contributed to an outline of best handling practices of perishables on the back of a trial that involved tracking the transport of fresh raspberries from a South African farm to supermarkets in the UK.
The CCA said it will be hosting a panel session at Airfreight Pharma, taking place in Athens, Greece, on 20-22 September. The conference will bring together stakeholders across the Pharma industry to discuss and share insights into the best handling procedures of pharmaceutical products.
