- How to Implement Cool Chain Regulations Effectively in Order to Ensure Full Compliance
In this interview Dr. Cornelia Nopitsch-Mai, Scientist, Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices Germany, BFARM, outlines the current regulatory initiatives for GDP (Good Distribution Practice) and cool chain management. Nopitsch-Mai explores with Andrea Charles from Pharma IQ, the key stability issues of pharmaceutical bulk products and how to overcome them, as well as sharing her top three tips for implementing cool chain regulations effectively.
Dr. Cornelia Nopitsch-Mai will be presenting on day two of Cool Chain Europe. She will be discussing 'German National And European Requirements For GDP And Cold Chain Processes'
- Changes and Challenges for Reefer Ocean Carriers
Eric Eng, Vice President of Global Reefer Trade at APL, joins Pharma IQ to discuss the evolution of the cool chain environment. He discusses:
The trends and technological advances affecting future design and equipping of the cool chain; why it’s difficult for the industry to create global cool chain technological solutions; and what the global landscape for cool chain will look like in five years time.
And looking specifically at Reefer Trade:
The handling processes and challenges for high-value and temperature-sensitive products; the advantages of shipping temperature-sensitive products via reefer containers; SMARTemp continuous temperature and humidity monitoring, real-time data and temperature alarms
Eric Eng will be speaking at Cool Chain Europe on conference day two. He will be discussing 'Understanding The Business Of A Reefer Ocean Carrier And How Critical Temperatures Are Maintained From Origin To Destination'.

- Dealing with cool chain challenges
As organisations across the planet increasingly turn to cool chain solutions, managers are faced with a growing number of challenges. From tightening air capacities, controlling logistics costs, fixing leaks with air freight transport to maintaining security in the cool chain and ensuring regulatory compliance, the issues which must be addressed are all vital in ensuring operations run smoothly. For many companies, however, the problem has not been with the cool chain itself, but a failure to turn to the technology soon enough.... Read more
- Examining cool chain efficiency
One of the major issues facing companies in the cool chain is how to optimise energy efficiency throughout operations. As well as concerns such as tightening air capacities, controlling logistics costs and maintaining security, energy efficiency is at the forefront of many industry leaders' minds... Read more
