Keep your medical and pharmaceutical operations in excellent health

When you’re handling challenging or high-value shipments like those found in the medical and pharmaceutical industries, you need absolute confidence that you can get them delivered on time, and in the right condition.

Descartes MacroPoint offers you the visibility you need to accurately coordinate your freight and deliver on time, alongside in-transit temperature monitoring and alerting capabilities that keep your goods safe and secure.

Solving your biggest challenges

Avoid severe consequences

In pharmaceuticals, missed delivery windows can lead to serious costs. While in healthcare, they can prevent people from getting the care they need. Our simplified carrier tracking and precise ETAs allow you to coordinate your operations with surgical precision, minimizing the impact of late deliveries.

Ditch the downtime

Raw materials that don’t arrive on schedule can grind production to a halt. With access to a wealth of supply chain data, Descartes MacroPoint gives you early warning of potential delays, so you can retool your line and keep productivity high.

Protect the quality of goods

Medical and pharmaceutical supplies are some of the most fragile materials a business can handle, and lack of visibility can very quickly lead to spoilage. Reduce the risk of waste with real-time notifications on temperature fluctuations.
