The only thing more important than making sure your pharmaceuticals arrive on time is that they arrive safely and intact. Pharmaceutical track and trace, along with a variety of shipping methods, can ensure that both of these things are done properly and efficiently.
Nearly half of all citizens in the United States have used at least one prescription drug in the last month. In fact, in 2010, doctors and pharmacies ordered or distributed nearly 3 billion prescription drugs either during or after visits with physicians. With half of a nation’s population using one or more prescription drugs every month, that’s a lot of money going into the pharmaceutical industry.
If there’s that much money going into an industry, the packaging and delivery of their products has to be precise and top notch. For medicine and pharmaceuticals, blister packaging is one of the best and most common medical packaging techniques. Pharmaceutical blister packaging can come with a variety of features and in a variety of colors to ensure the right medication goes to the right person. In fact, medical blister packaging can often be completed with child safe features so only adults can open it. Not only does this prevent children from getting into dangerous medication, it also puts parents’ minds at ease.
Additional security features for pharmaceutical track and trace include different varieties of packaging, as well as serialization of each individual product. The serialization of a product allows it to be identified by a pharmacy or a pharmaceutical company in a way that reveals travel history and the destination. These new security features make selling prescription drugs much more efficient for pharmaceutical packaging companies, and the pharmacies they ship to. In addition, the new serialized labels allow for faster and more secure purchases by customers at a pharmacy.
No matter what kind of work is being done, or what kind of product is being shipped, the most important thing to keep in mind is that it arrives without any damage or delays. The new track and trace policies allow for the safest, and most efficient packaging and distribution of pharmaceuticals yet. Don’t wait to learn more about these new policies and make sure your prescription medication meets the requirements!
