Years ago, getting products into Russia was easy due to a lack of regulation. Fortunately, this is not the case anymore, Russian medication labeling laws are now extremely stringent. The country has made huge efforts in recent years to establish new ways of tracking pharmaceutical products arriving at its borders in recent years.
When it comes to pharmaceuticals, creating a life-saving drug is only half the battle. The other half is organizing the logistics behind getting the product to healthcare centers and patients in pristine condition. Many pharmaceutical products have very specific temperature control requirements that must be followed in order to ensure product quality for the end-user. Not abiding by these requirements could result in the product being rendered unusable and thrown out as well as cause huge financial losses on the manufacturer’s end.
The pharmaceuticals industry is made up of rigid standards that must be met, and with good reason. When looking to break into the Russian market, the single most important factor to consider is finding a trustworthy, experienced logistics partner to help you reach your ultimate goal.
