At long last, the much awaited life-saving vaccines against the dreadful Corona virus are arriving in the country.
These incoming shipments are immensely valuable and incredibly delicate. Its proper handling, storage and management can only be entrusted to the most capable and competent medical cold-chain specialists.
For this reason, PharmaServ Express emerged as the preferred logistics service provider due to its exclusive specialization, expertise, and experience in medical cold-chain logistics delivery and management.
A vital component in the efficient delivery of health services is the highly specialized medical cold-chain industry. The quality and integrity of medical products such as pharmaceuticals, which are highly sensitive to time and temperature, play a critical role in the success of medical treatments. This is especially true for vaccines, which are essentially ‘living’ substances.
PharmaServ implements an ingenious multi-modal system of transport that capitalizes on available resources especially in remote places that are hard to reach by conventional means. By effectively combining air, sea, and land transport options (including native local transportation, as required) we are able to penetrate and deliver where other logistics providers cannot.
Advanced technologies in PharmaServ’s service arsenal empower our clients to maintain close monitoring of their vital payloads. These technologies include state-of-the-art online platforms that allow for real time temperature monitoring, GPS tracking, and verification of actual shipment status. The net benefit for clients is full traceability and visibility of their shipments at any point in the duration of the dispatch.
Specialized biothermal packaging capabilities are one of the strengths of PharmaServ Express. These advance technology packaging systems and logistics enable us to handle various kinds of payloads in different sizes and volumes. Our biothermal logistics are tested and proven to withstand extreme environmental conditions, and are able to outperform and outlast conventional logistics systems especially in contingency situations.
PharmaServ Express operates its own purpose-built facilities that are designed for nothing else but medical cold-chain storage and handling. These dedicated facilities give us the distinct advantage towards delivering well managed and properly executed operations for every requirement that we receive. In a tropical country like ours, PharmaServ’s specialized facilities contribute tremendously in providing internationally compliant storage and handling exclusively for medical cold-chain logistics application.
As a specialized service provider PharmaServ Express is totally dedicated to the life sciences, with expertise and experience in handling biothermals such as vaccines and blood products. Our technologies, operations protocols and workflows, manpower complement, and overall capabilities are exclusively focused on medical cold-chain logistics management.
More importantly, PharmaServ Express offers customized service solutions to the specific needs and requirements of our clients. We have the capacity and competence to troubleshoot unexpected problems that may arise during medical cold-chain logistics transport. We design and recommend the most efficient approaches possible, for the benefit of our customers.
PharmaServ Express is not only a service provider; we are a solutions provider as well. We are your medical cold-chain logistics management specialists.
Cord Blood Collection is one of our standard services. A vital bodily substance from newborn infants is immediately harvested for future medical use when those infants grow up. This substance—cord blood—is highly perishable and must be transported and properly stored within the shortest time possible. Since childbirth is highly unpredictable in terms of precise schedule and timing, PharmaServ Express has a dedicated team that is always prepared to provide this crucial service even at extremely short notice. We have been a reliable partner of Cord Life Philippines for this.
By developing a fleet of trained motorized couriers equipped with compliant biothermal cases, PharmaServ Express pioneered the solution to serious delays in cold-chain deliveries caused by road traffic. Regardless of time of day or weather conditions, our cold-chain riders are able to deliver daily to more than 500 destinations (such as clinics and drugstore outlets) within Greater Manila Area and nearby provinces. In addition, our delivery fleet consists of other types of land vehicles with varying capabilities suited to different purposes.
PharmaServ’s advanced technology biothermal packaging systems are the preferred system of the country’s Department of Health (DOH) for its various National Immunization Programs. The DOH relies heavily on PharmaServ Express to safely transport expensive life-saving vaccines from its central warehouse at the Regional Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) in Muntinlupa and distribute these throughout our archipelago, even to some remote and geographically isolated depressed areas or GIDAs. In servicing these specialized needs of the DOH for the past four years, PharmaServ Express maintains a sterling track record.
In late 2019, an outbreak of polio was detected in Mindanao. The disease had already been eradicated worldwide. As a result, the vaccine for it is no longer manufactured commercially. However, that sudden and unexplained case of re-emergence of polio had to be immediately contained.
The United Nations Children’s Fund or UNICEF acted urgently to procure the vaccines. Time being extremely crucial in that situation, UNICEF engaged PharmaServ Express in successfully delivering the vaccines to recipients in Lanao del Sur, Davao del Norte, and the cities of Davao, Marawi and Zamboanga.
Certain pharmaceutical manufacturers prefer PharmaServ Express to service their direct deliveries to their own private clients such as hospitals, doctors’ clinics, and to healthworkers in other treatment facilities. As such, PharmaServ Express delivery vehicles and personnel have become a constant presence in these establishments. Other logistics providers also rely on PharmaServ if they have cold-chain requirements which their own systems cannot accommodate.
