The need to bridge the gap between essential medicines and their accessibility can mean the difference between success and failure for any clinical trial. This was the problem that faced a local medical facility in South Africa when multiple pallets of vital supplies needed door to door delivery from the US at record speed.
After a cry for help, the logistics team at Oximio, Africa, jumped into action. Liaising with their freight contractor, they were quickly able to negotiate a fee, within a grant funded budget, for their client for airfreight, screening and airline handling. Oximio swiftly arranged collection of 17 pallets from the US supplier depot and within 24 hours, port health authorities had inspected and approved the goods for shipping on an express flight the next day. A controlled room temperature shipment, on arrival in Africa, our teams were waiting to collect and deliver the goods in record time to our customer’s premises. The whole process from start to finish took 5 days.
A job well done; the timely delivery of the medicine was greatly appreciated by our customer. This meant that the progression of their trial could continue as planned with patients receiving their essential treatment without disruption.
A huge thanks to everyone involved.
