Pharma firm picks TranSend for PoD

Pharmaceutical firm Ethigen has selected TranSend’s ePOD delivery management system to handle deliveries to pharmacies throughout their fleet of 40 vehicles in Scotland and Northern England.

For regulatory control, Ethigen requires a proof of delivery system to provide secure tracking of products, including controlled drugs, from loading onto vehicles to the point of delivery to the pharmacies

ePOD will replace existing paper-based processes and enable load validation by the driver with signature capture on delivery to the pharmacist, feeding real-time data into the back office system, confirming recipient ID with time and date stamp.

Drivers will use the TranSend app to confirm their load prior to departure, sign for any controlled drugs on the load and confirm relevant delivery checks and validation from the pharmacist upon delivery.

TranSend is set to exhibit at IntraLogisteX, which will take place in less than a month at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, between 25th and 26th March. For further information, click here.
