On Wednesday, 17th of January, Hanhaa is hosting a Webinar presenting the role of IoT in Pharma logistics and illustrating how smart solutions are implemented to improve current processes in place and overall productivity and performance, ensuring compliance with delivery times and governmental regulations. The webinar will look at live data generated from ParceLive trackers in the Pharma sector including a case study on ParceLive users Holifresh & how live temperature data is benefiting their customers.
Despite Brexit and economics growing uncertainties in the UK, investments in technology remain remarkably heavy, especially in the IoT sector. Connected technologies have been playing an important role in improving working processes and capabilities in numerous industries, one of them being logistics. This is especially relevant to the pharma sector which is increasingly relying on big data and real-time information to ensure product quality, regulatory compliance and operational efficiency at every stage of their supply chains.
With the impact of globalisation and accelerated scientific progress pharmaceutical manufacturers are increasingly dealing with sensitive products, such as vaccines and customised treatments for rare diseases that have shorter shelf lives and carry strict temperature requirements. Due to the challenges of batch manufacturing especially when it comes to monitoring the logistical journey of pharmaceuticals industry players continually face issues related to product degradation and recalls. Increasing numbers of pharma counterfeit incidents as well as compliance with best practices and regulations on the production and distribution processes are also issues to contend.
