Begin this interactive hour with a short presentation from the workshop facilitator about new cutting-edge methods of thermal temperature mapping. Then, split into small groups and get stuck into hands-on exercises and discussions designed to dig deep into your most pressing challenges and leave you ready to implement new strategies around thermal mapping to increase temperature control.
• Examine how to apply GDP compliant risk management strategies to your logistics strategy
• Conduct thermal temperature mapping tests to ensure that all sections of your transportation route are covered
• Learn to qualify transportation methods to ensure correct transport conditions at all anticipated external temperature extremes
