Our Pharmaceutical Freight Safety

Moving medical goods requires pharmaceutical temperature controlled transport; at P&O Freight you can count on our safe shipping process to monitor the specific needs of any medical shipment. 

Before booking your goods on board you will declare whether your pharmaceutical cargo requires a plug-in service and its temperature requirements. 

With this cold chain distribution for pharmaceuticals check we can monitor your shipment’s safety and help you to ensure it moves at a consistent temperature on and off our vessels. 

Along with these best practices, we also classify some pharmaceutical goods as hazardous loads so you must declare this upon booking. Our port teams need to ensure availability and the correct connectivity for any goods with plug in requirements so be sure to inform us ahead of time.
