The Solution

Pharmaceuticals typically require special attention and handling throughout the supply chain. Consider the following attributes in a potential transportation provider.

Qualification: MD Express maintains a highly specialized network of carriers who have passed a rigorous qualification process. This includes background checks and assessment of required certifications, but also takes a detailed look into driver training records, ensuring that drivers are properly trained on temperature and security breaches.

MD Express also validates both truck and trailer to ensure both pieces of equipment meet strict quality standards.

Technology: Given the importance of temperature control within the industry, carriers must have 24/7 temperature monitoring capabilities and consistently carry loads without a deviation in temperature. MD Express employs industry technology to offer their customers the capabilities of load tracking and delay monitoring as an added service.

Peace of Mind: By providing brokerage services, MD Express works with a comprehensive network of qualified cold chain transportation providers who provide exceptional delivery with every transportation load, providing their customers with peace of mind their product will be safely delivered to the end user.
