How Aster Pharmacy, one of the biggest healthcare players in UAE, uses BikeKit’s cold boxes to deliver medicines.
Medicines have always been transported in a very robust supply chain mechanism, right from factories to warehouses to the pharmacies. Maintaining the right temperature & security of the medicines is very critical, to protect its shelf life & prevent it from getting spoilt. Thus, pharmaceutical companies have cold chain warehouses, refrigerated vans & all other necessary infrastructure to transport products from Point A to Point B.
With consumer preference evolving & the rapid growth of door-step deliveries happening, pharmacies are not lagging behind either. They also want to do the last mile delivery of the medicines & other related products to their customers, however, the challenge of doing it right under correct conditions with appropriate setup is a challenge.
