Transport of COVID-19 vaccines to healthcare institutions
We transported vaccines to various nursing homes and pharmacies.
The vaccines must be transported under strict GDP conditions, in accordance with the temperature specifications of the vaccine. During the entire process, this temperature is remotely monitored by the operational support team at the office. In addition, the shock sensitivity of the vaccines must be taken into account. For this, they are packed with special shock-absorbing material.
Good distribution practices – GDP
Our drivers have extensive experience with the transport of medicines and are therefore GDP trained.
All staff is GDP (Good Distribution Practices) certified. This means that they are trained in delivering shipments to the medical sector. We are compliant with the latest regulations and guidelines. For example, Jan de Rijk Logistics has pharma-certified commercial vehicles. In addition, Jan de Rijk Logistics is GDP and ISO 9001:2015 certified.

15-25 °C controlled transport
Jan de Rijk Logistics uses its own temperature-controlled trucks for 15-25 °C controlled transport. We have a varied fleet of vehicles, from vans to trucks. Several cars are equipped with temperature sensors so that the temperature is constantly monitored. This data is also available online to the customer via an app. When the temperature threatens to become too high or too low, the planning department and the driver automatically receive a warning. Jan de Rijk Logistics also has a GDP-certified healthcare cross-dock. This Healthcare hub has been verified at 15-25°C. From the collection address, the medical products are transported to the Healthcare hub of Jan de Rijk Logistics. We then deliver the products to the location of your choice.
2-8 °C controlled transport
Jan de Rijk Logistics has various solutions for cold chain shipments. Depending on the type of customer, we choose the best solution in consultation. Jan de Rijk Logistics has mobile refrigerators in which the shipments can be transported for, among other things, patient deliveries. The refrigeration installation consists of a refrigeration unit fitted with a mobile undercarriage, a GPS tracking system, and a battery pack. This allows active cooling for 16 hours continuously. When the temperature falls below 3 degrees or above 8 degrees, an alarm follows. The refrigerators can be followed via an online platform or via the Jan de Rijk Logistics app. The advantage of this method of transport is that we can send cold chain shipments in every vehicle. We also have trucks that can cool 2°-8°C or combined. These vehicles are also equipped with sensors and a GPS tracking system so that the status of the shipment is clear to the customer.
Staff is also GDP trained for non-temperature controlled medical supplies. In this way we guarantee product safety and quality. The quality and safety in every aspect of the service is important!
