The highly sensitive medical products must often be transported by special equipment which requires a thorough education of both drivers, freight forwarders and sub-suppliers. All of these factors also mean significant administrative control as all processes must be described, supervised and audited according to Goods Distribution Practices, which is EU's code of practice regarding pharmaceutical products.

"The shipments are very costly and fragile and must often travel long distances. Therefore, everyone cannot handle the tasks. It takes a strong and competent organisation to live up to the clients' expectations within this niche, but our organisation is used to challenging assignments", says Lars Tue Toftild, who is the General Manager for Blue Water Copenhagen.

Blue Water delivers from Denmark to the rest of the world, but due to the increasing focus on streamlining the transport chain for the purpose of reducing the costs and the environmental impact, cross trade is also offered.

"It means that we through our comprehensive network are able to transport directly from production facilities abroad to the rest of Europe and USA. Transport of medicine is a focus area for us and because of the higher demands compared to traditional transports, this area contributes to developing us for the benefit of our clients", says Lars Tue Toftild.
