Ship Medical Supplies Rapidly
Pharmaceuticals are one of the most restricted cargos for the shipping industry. The Drug Enforcement Agency and the Food and Drug Administration publish regulations relevant to shipping medication that are enforced worldwide. Trained representatives at Expedited World Cargo know the proper way to package, label and ship medical goods in order to be compliant with all regulations so your medications get to their destination safely and on time.
Medical Shipping Technology
Many drugs are temperature–controlled further complicating the logistics of shipping medication. EWC is able to accommodate the specifications of these medications by utilizing gel pack technology. The benefits of gel packs are:
- Keeping items cool protects them from spoilage while in transit
- Reusing gel packs for other purposes by the package receiver
The way that medications are labeled and categorized also requires advanced technology. Having the proper coding when you ship medical supplies is vital to domestic, import and export compliance. Failure to properly label and package when shipping medication causes delays in U.S. Customs or other government offices and can mean loss of productivity for your company. EWC will take away the guess work and properly:
- Categorize the medication
- Label it
- Package it
- Ship the medication
