The global pharmaceutical industry has been rapidly growing. Today, innovative drug products are being developed around the world, are marketed and sold to a much larger proportion of the global population.

Most often, the nature of a pharmaceutical product doesn’t allow it to be transferred in normal conditions. Thanks to logistic technology advances, now cold storage transfer is possible. Companies like CRYOPDP are revolutionizing the supply chain industry. CRYOPDP is the European and APAC leader in cold chain logistics, with its operations spread over 150 countries With the aim of improving the health of people around the world by providing global and innovative temperature-controlled logistics and supply chain solutions.

Cedric Picaud, CRYOPDP’s CEO, was with us to share the organization’s success story.

How did it all begin?

Since we were all so curious about the reason behind CRYOPDP, we asked Cedric what inspired the founders to venture into the cold chain logistics market and set up CRYOPDP. CRYOPDP’s genesis was always linked to the science and healthcare industries, with a strong focus on saving the lives of our patients.

When we think about this industry, we know and understand that the focus on improving and saving patient’s lives with innovative and effective drug therapies, that are completely adapted to patients’ needs are the main reason for companies operate in this market and make the efforts to ensure that they can overcome challenges and give a step forward in scientific investigation and human well-being”.

Cedric added, “However, for this concept to come to life, we must consider the entire value chain. And here, we have different participants. Pharma and Biopharma are critical, research labs are also essential, but patients are at the core of the process. Relying on temperature-controlled supply chain & logistics companies is a must. Without logistics and supply chain services, we wouldn’t be able to complete the chain of value. This is CRYOPDP’s focus, ensuring that we provide temperature-controlled logistics and supply chain solutions to the clinical research and Cell and Gene communities, guaranteeing that, in the end, we are working to save lives”.

The past two years are an example of how the healthcare industry sometimes has to provide quick answers to unexpected challenges. During the pandemic, CRYOPDP, as an expert in temperature-controlled logistics, had to respond in record time and developed and implemented the DtP solution, a direct-to-patient approach with the goal of keeping clinical trials running during the pandemic. Nowadays, the decentralization of clinical trials is established in the market and the DtP solution is a must to have.

This has been our role as a company that supports the health industry and cares about its patients. We will always adjust, adapt and create solutions according to the needs of our customers, partners and patients.”
