The Need for Proper Insulation in Pharmaceutical Packaging

Pharmaceutical Products

When it comes to pharmaceuticals, you can never be too careful in terms of shipping, especially when it comes to transporting medicine over long Interstate distances. That’s the premise that a whole specialized transportation industry has been developed around. At any moment of the day in North America, cargo trucks with specific, temperature-controlled semi-trailers are hauling several metric tons of pharmaceuticals from factory-floor to drugstore counter.  The reason for these trucks being meticulously temperature-controlled is on account of the medicine they carry. Even the most innocuous, over-the-counter drugs can be rendered ineffective (or worse)
if they are exposed to too much heat during the course of shipment.

Pharmaceutical packaging and partitioning are themselves essential parts of ensuring product quality. The key to designing packaging and partitioning for pharmaceuticals is making sure they are insulated properly. Without the right level of insulation – especially when it comes to interior partitioning and layer padding – the corrugated containers being transported can soak up an excess amount of heat. If that happens, then the drugs are most often rendered forfeit, and both drugstore and drug manufacturer lose a huge amount of profit.
