Cold Chain Logistics

Committed to keeping your cool.

As of today, at least 20% of clinical trials rely on a product that is shipped via cold chain logistics. And as more development involves biologics and personalized medicine, this percentage is expected to keep climbing. In fact, it’s expected that 8 in 10 pharma products will require cold chain supply handling within the next few years to get to the people who need them, safely.

Parexel’s Cold Supply Chain and Logistics Capabilities

Our global network of coordination hubs, distribution centers, and depots have storage, packaging, and distribution facilities for various temperatures:

  • -20°C
  • 2-8°C
  • 15-25°C
  • -70°C (on request)

Careful attention by our Harmonized Monitoring System means peace-of-mind with 24/7 tracking of all temperature-controlled points in the supply chain. And if the unexpected happens, we’re ready, with back-up generators and additional refrigeration systems.

There are many points in this chain where factors like humidity and light exposure can become an issue. With consistent check-ins, we are better able to understand where and why these temperature swings happen and develop ways to avoid them. This constant tracking also provides security, with location monitoring when moving costly or controlled substances.



We are always available for a conversation.
