Pharmaceuticals, Medical Supplies & Medical Devices

There are several pieces of the puzzle, or links in the chain, to get temperature sensitive products from door to door in real time. Proper coordination requires focus, dedication and a commitment to staying up to date on safety and regulatory standards.

We support in maintaining the cold chain process through GPS tracking and the close monitoring of optimal temperatures to eliminate the threat of temperature excursions.

Our dedicated team understands the liability and danger of failing to meet those standards which leads to a delivered product that is considered unusable costing a tremendous amount of waste, disruption to your operations and potential regulatory fines.

We adhere to the regulatory standards of the following Governing bodies:


Pharmaceuticals are any product(s) intended for human use or veterinary product intended for administration to food producing animals, presented in its finished dosage form. Pharmaceuticals are control by FDA legislation and includes products for which a prescription is required, products which may be sold to patients without a prescription, biologicals and vaccines. Medical devices are not included

Medical Device/Supplies

A medical device is any device intended to be used for medical purposes. Common examples include: Diagnostic equipment includes medical imaging machines such as ultrasound and MRI machines, PET and CT scanners, and x-ray machines. Treatment equipment includes infusion pumps, medical lasers and LASIK surgical machines

A medical supply

Refers to the non-durable disposable health care materials ordered or prescribed by a physician. Common examples include: Ostomy supplies, catheters, oxygen, and diabetic supplies.

High Value

The term "high-value cargo" can vary. The value of the cargo being shipped can range from a few hundred to several million (e.g. industrial equipment, large quantities of hi-tech electronics, or pharmaceuticals).

Cold Chain

A cold chain is a temperature-controlled supply chain. An unbroken cold chain is an uninterrupted series of refrigerated production, storage and distribution activities, along with associated equipment and logistics, which maintain a desired low-temperature range.

Internet of Things (IoT) – Cold Chain Management

An IoT ecosystem consists of web-enabled smart devices with embedded processors, sensors and communication hardware to collect and transmit real-time data on your cargo’s transportation environment. Magnetic Precision leverages IoT technology during transport to alleviate the concern of pharmaceutical compliance.

Refrigerated Transportation

Refrigerated transportation (or reefer freight) is a method for shipping freight that requires special, temperature-controlled vehicles. The vehicle transporting the products being shipped has a built-in refrigeration system that keeps products at a desired temperature throughout the transportation process.

Temperature Control

Temperature Control Includes any environment in which the temperature is actively or passively controlled at a level different from that of the surrounding environment, within precise pre-defined limits.

Time Sensitive

Time sensitive is used to describe a product that must be delivered by a specified timeframe.

Less-than-Truckload (LTL)

Less than Truckload refers to the transport of goods that does not require the entire space of a truck. This is also referred to as LTL shipping.  

Full Truckload (FTL)

Full Truckload refers to the transport of goods that will fill up a 48’ or 53’ trailer, by volume or weight. Full Truckload shipping is typically contracted by one customer gaining full and exclusive use of the trailer. This is also referred to as FTL shipping.

Long Haul Expedited (Team Transit)

The goal of expedited freight shipping is to cut out all wasted time delivering the goods, to their destination, on a time-sensitive basis. Trucks transporting expedited freight rarely stop along the way to get goods delivered in the timeliest manner. To prevent any hours of service violations, as defined by the Department of Transportation (DOT), a team of two drivers are paired to meet delivery timelines.
