Curb Customs Delays for Your Pharma Cargo with Röhlig-Grindrod Pharma
Ensure the integrity of your sensitive pharma cargo throughout the supply chain with our specialist logistics solutions
The lack of customs cohesion poses huge risks for pharma cargo. The highest risk to the integrity of a pharmaceutical product being distributed in Africa is often at the transit point, according to Ryan Viegas, head of logistics for the Asia Pacific (Apac) region at pharmaceutical company, Teva. Speaking at the Air Cargo Africa 2017 conference in Johannesburg, Viegas said that customs stops at airports often caused “excessive” delays. “This is especially true in Africa with every country requiring different documentation,” he said.
How can these delays be curbed?
End-to-end visibility, including constant communication by the various supply chain service providers is key. As a highly-reliable, experienced and proficient pharma logistics solutions provider, Röhlig-Grindrod Pharma provides full supply chain visibility.
Viegas himself said his company’s priorities when choosing a service provider were firstly compliance with cool chain regulations, second was the service and third was the cost.
