Optimizing Vaccine Distribution

Finding a Reliable Fleet Management Partner to Ensure Vaccine Precision

Entrusted with the responsibility of nationwide vaccine delivery, Pharmaniaga understands the importance of establishing a robust cold chain system. The transportation of vaccines is a delicate and intricate mission, distinct from the movement of other pharmaceutical supplies. Ensuring vaccine effectiveness requires precise storage and transportation due to their delicate nature. Minimal deviations can significantly affect potency.

In fortifying vaccine distribution, innovative technologies and techniques are essential. Pharmaniaga, as the official vaccine logistics partner, upholds uncompromising quality. Its fleet adheres to strict Good Distribution Practice (GDP) and World Health Organization (WHO) standards for transportation and handling.

Meeting GDP and WHO standards, Pharmaniaga’s fleet required exceptional features: continuous temperature monitoring, strategic route planning, secured driver management, automated asset maintenance scheduling, data documentation, and comprehensive security protocols.

KATSANA’s advanced cold chain fleet management system seamlessly fits the bill. This partnership employs many key aspects including door sensors, fuel monitoring systems, driver management, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, ensuring a seamless cold chain management system.
