Why to record Transport ? Data loggers‘ usefulness (Pharma study case)

In the complex and ever-evolving world of transportation, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, monitoring and managing products in transit have become crucial. Mr. HUART, in his presentation, delves deeply into the challenges and solutions associated with this issue. This article aims to dissect and analyze the key points of his presentation, with a focus on the use of data loggers (PDA) in improving the quality of pharmaceutical product transportation.

Studied phenomena

Transportation, regardless of its mode, is subjected to various forms of physical constraints such as shocks, vibrations, and jolts. These phenomena can have a significant impact on the quality and integrity of transported pharmaceutical products. Mr. HUART's studies demonstrate how these forces act on packages and how they can affect, sometimes irreversibly, the composition and effectiveness of pharmaceutical products. Understanding these phenomena is essential to ensure safe and efficient transportation.

Data Logger: An essential tool

At the heart of Mr. HUART's study is the data logger, a device capable of measuring and recording key variables such as temperature, pressure, humidity, accelerations, and GPS position. These data are crucial for understanding and analyzing the conditions to which products are exposed during transport. Analyzing this data not only helps detect issues but also enables preventive measures to avoid them in the future.

Pharmaceutical approach in the supply chain

The specificity of the pharmaceutical industry lies in its complex supply chain and high requirements for product quality and safety. The study highlights the importance of strategically positioning sensors to obtain relevant and representative data throughout the entire journey. This systematic approach identifies critical transportation stages and allows for targeted improvements.

Transport study and its phases

A detailed study of the different transportation phases reveals the moments when products are most likely to be damaged. Comparing the collected data with existing standards helps detect deviations and take corrective measures. This part of the study is essential to ensure the compliance of transportation processes with the required quality standards.

Double benefit of the study

Mr. HUART's study highlights a dual benefit. On one hand, it identifies risk areas in the logistics chain, and on the other hand, it offers the opportunity to optimize the design of packaging for better product protection. This bidirectional approach benefits both product quality and cost reduction associated with transport damages.

Conclusion and outlook

In conclusion, Mr. HUART's study provides a comprehensive and detailed insight into the importance of data loggers in the transportation of pharmaceutical products. It underscores the significance of a scientific and systematic approach in supply chain management. The prospects opened by this study are vast, ranging from continuous improvement of transport practices to the design of innovative solutions for the protection of pharmaceutical products.
