Cold chains used for pharma logistics in Canada need to be highly robust due to the region’s vast territories. The region’s immense landscape provides challenging driving conditions including long distances, mountain winter conditions in the west, and unexpected weather scenarios that can result in roadblocks to effective delivery such as bridges ruined by rain, roads blocked by ice, and many other hazards. All of these factors have the potential to not only add to major transit delays but can also result in significant costs.

Partnerships and collaborations
The pharmaceutical industry in Canada is rapidly moving towards an externalized R&D set up through partnerships and collaborations. A similar trend has been noted in the pharma logistics segment with several manufacturers outsourcing supply chain processes in an effort to benefit from the expertise of pharma logistics providers. However, this comes with challenges of its own. By delegating responsibilities externally, pharma manufacturers risk losing the end-to-end control that they once had on all their operations. Therefore, a stringent and robust quality agreement must be formed between all parties to protect the integrity of the product. Particularly well-defined standard operating procedures must be established regarding how the product and the raw materials will be treated.
Extreme weather conditions
Temperatures can sometimes soar to extremes in Canada and this can sometimes compromise the quality of pharma products during transit. The pharma logistics facilities used must be able to protect the products from overheating in the hot climates or from freezing in the cold climates. This places a heavy burden on validating quality systems within the chain. The unpredictability of the weather conditions in Canada, in terms of their severity and duration, makes it extremely challenging for pharma logistics providers to preserve and ensure the quality and timely delivery of products.
