With the increase in the number of temperature controlled drugs in development and the progression in clinical trials so that even comparators can require special temperature handling, managing sensitive products has taken on a new level of sophistication. Des Charlery will discuss how to develop a distribution plan that takes into account the temperature zones and whether to use a regional versus centralized hub strategy; the export process and key terms to know and understand; required documentation and selecting appropriate shipping container and finally, managing validation time during transit.
