How are controlled drugs supplies handled?
As a controlled drugs professional, you must have an idea of their sensitivity to temperature and atmospheric pressure. That’s why these medical products require a lot of care and attention before they are loaded and while they are enroute to the dropoff position. At FET Logistics, we have experts who look into controlled drug transportation. Even before booking the order, we ensure the category of the pharmaceutical products, perform complete checks for the right level of Temperature and pressure and whether the goods also need extra care and storage before being dropped to the destination. While technical assistance teams at FET Logistics handle all the controlled drugs supplies, the fleet management checks the vehicles, adjusts the atmospheric conditions within the vehicle, provides due instructions to the drivers and discusses the dropoff position in detail. While all of this happens, we always provide our customers with the opportunity to track the progress of their shipment remotely at any point in time!
FET Logistics fully complies with the current government guidelines, as laid out in the following document:
