The first quarter of 2018 has seen MVD Free Airport incorporate several new distribution set-ups in the region to better serve the pharmaceutical market in South America. In January, a global specialty pharma company has commenced their direct-to-patient distribution to South America centralizing their distribution via MVD Free Airport.
“It is definitely a very challenging model, ensuring high-value, highly critical medication is sent as quickly as possible to the right person, while ensuring all aspects related to cold-chain storage, handling and packaging are up to the most demanding quality standards. We understand the positive impact we are having on many lives, and are proud to be a part of something like that” mentioned Carla Sarti, Head of Client Advisory at MVD Free Airport.
Simultaneously, MVD Free Airport has begun with the storage and distribution of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients and shipping to Brazil for production purposes. This has also presented the need for a detailed and tailored SOPs given the nature of the goods, the majority danger, and the specific handling and storage requirements.
Last but not least, MVD Free Airport has hit a significant milestone in its Brazil distribution having sent its truck number 400 via the Santana do Livramento border with zero temperature deviations, significantly reducing clearance times and providing a traceable and reliable entry point to Brazil.
“We are receiving very manifest interest from many large global players attempting to tackle similar issues. We look forward to making all these exciting projects a reality”, added Sarti.
