We care your products are delivered
We deliver to our customers worldwide from our logistics center in Geneva, Switzerland. We offer an unrivalled service. Our primary objective is to deliver your products, many of which are temperature sensitive, in the quickest and most efficient way possible. We apply a Quality Management System within our company which guarantee highest standards in terms of operational and controlling activities.
We are aware that what we ship to you is only as good as our packaging. All orders are packed in IATA approved thermal boxes. Choosing the right shipping method is also essential to ensure that products you need remain SAFE until the final delivery.
Even with the best planning, emergencies can happen and we understand your need to partner with a leading-edge and professional supply chain company to get the products you need, when you need them to achieve your patient care goals.
HOW WE TAKE CARE OF PRODUCTS
Our company policy is that all products are monitored from the moment they are shipped from the manufacture, while stored in our logistics center and then until they are delivered to the customer. All shipping conditions are checked in advance and we support our customers to ensure that they understand and apply the best conditions upon arrival at destination.
HOW WE STORE
Once our incoming goods check procedure is completed and the product conditions are validated through our Quality Management System, goods are stored in our fridges and freezer which are monitored 24h. An alarm system notifies us of any excursion of temperature while energy supply is secured with a backup system. Our warehouse is located within the airport freight hall, a secured area with controlled access and very close to cargo airfreight operations, courier companies and customs authorities. This gives us the advantage for ensuring quick and efficient handling operations for incoming and outgoing shipments, so that transit time from our fridge / freezer to that of the airline or courier company is negligible.
HOW WE PACK: Packing also counts
Perishable +2° to +8° C. or Perishable -20° C.
Your products are our business so we add extra care through our unique packaging.
For both goods requiring to be kept frozen (-20° to -70° C.) or kept cool (+2° to +8° C.), we pack with the required quantity of refrigerant based on our experience and the technical requirements of each product, such as transportation method and lead time for the delivery. Conditions of shipment for each destination are carefully checked in advance and validated, taking into consideration the clearance process upon arrival and external temperature during transit.
Temperature monitor: data logger
We include temperature monitors in shipment upon request. The type of temperature monitor we supply (Tempmate S1 V2) is qualified for proven efficiency, ease of use and customable set up. It is included in Approved data loggers listed by cargo airlines and MOH in most countries.
