The pharmaceutical industry is ever-evolving and moving at a rapid pace. Historically, pharmaceutical companies would work with temperature-controlled packaging providers to develop product-specific shipping solutions based on temperature, size and lane requirements. While this right-size approach works well to save on shipping costs, the time and cost to develop a bespoke container can lead to costly delays when time is important. And updating shippers as temperature requirements change means additional regulatory approvals.
Flexible packaging, which affords varying levels of customization without the need for drawn-out development or validation, can configure to different size and temperature requirements. It is increasingly seen as a viable solution to achieve speed-to-market.
