QuickSTAT Partners with Almac Group to Develop a Temperature Controlled Packaging Management System
QuickSTAT and Almac have partnered to provide a market leading, Just In Time (JIT) global Logistics and Inventory Management Program to improve turn around times of phase change shipper solutions, and other Vacuum Insulated Packaging (VIP) Systems. The program will help to ensure the viability of high-risk shipments to geographical and logistically challenging countries, in order to minimize the risk of a shipment temperature excursion.
The Phase Change Shipping units will be fulfilled on a JIT basis, with same day dispatch. The units will be conditioned under the manufacturer's strict standard operating procedures for the specific temperature ranges required: +2° to +8° C, +15° to +25° C, and -25° to-15° C. and will be transported in an expedited manner, reducing turn around time and accelerating delivery to most locations worldwide by at least 24 hours from previous industry methods.
The Inventory Management System, developed by QuickSTAT's in-house IT team, has the ability to track VIP shippers in transit, monitors the actual time the package is valid from pack out time, and calculates time from pack out to expiration, based on the packaging validation specifications. It also includes a managed inventory, inclusive of returns, therefore providing efficient use of return shippers, which is an environmentally friendly solution.
