Bolloré’s dynamic response to pharmaceutical logistics
Bolloré Transport & Logistics is working with the entire pharmaceutical industry to build bespoke multimodal transport solutions, combining air and sea freight via its regional healthcare platforms. Several charter flights have been deployed as part of reliable and secure solutions, supported by Bolloré Logistics platforms certified BPF/BPD and GMP (Singapore) and CEIV Pharma, departing from Miami for Latin America, from Singapore for Asia, from Canada and Chicago for North America, as well as from Paris Charles de Gaulle, Liège and Luxembourg for Europe and Africa.
At the same time, a new multimodal service has been opened between Asia and production sites located in the United States and Europe. Bolloré Transport & Logistics is moving products from factories at several different sites in the USA and Europe to Asia. Products are consolidated at our hub in Singapore, a brand-new transhipment centre specially created for this type of operation, before leaving Singapore by sea in temperature-controlled containers, in order to reach the markets of Southeast Asia. This solution requires specific equipment, such as reefer containers, in order to guarantee products are kept at controlled temperatures without breaking the cold chain at any time during the transport process.
All these movements of goods are tightly controlled through implementation of precise operational monitoring systems, as well as the Bolloré Transport & Logistics Track & Trace solution, which provides complete operational oversight in real-time via geolocation. A container temperature monitoring and alert system is put in place during transport, along with additional cold chain management services (thermal protection, insulated packaging, etc.). Upon receiving the slightest warning, the company’s 24/7 operations centre is able to react and take steps to remedy any unforeseen events.
In March 2020, Bolloré Transport & Logistics managed the shipment of over 90 tonnes of life-saving medicines between Frankfurt and Guangzhou on behalf of a biotechnology firm. The entire operation was carried out in full compliance with temperatures restricted to +2°C to +8°C and a special destination process for customs clearance and immediate transfer to temperature‑controlled trucks.
Bolloré Transport & Logistics teams are mobilising to manage the end-to-end logistics of some of the most complex operations taking place during the pandemic currently facing the world.
