Experts in your sector

Polar Speed Work Only in the Pharmaceutical Sector.

Why? Because the distribution requirements of this market can be especially demanding, and are often well beyond the capabilities of traditional transport and distribution organisations.

The simple truth is that temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals require specific and completely uncompromising supply chain support.

And that’s why Polar Speed was created with you in mind.

In the highly-regulated world of pharmaceuticals, supply chain considerations are becoming increasingly important.

It’s no longer simply ‘deliver Product A to Destination B’.

The truth is that the integrity of many products can be compromised (and in some instances rendered completely ineffective) if they are not kept within strict temperature parameters during transit.

Whilst they may be manufactured and stored in hi-tech and carefully managed environments, they must also be treated in the same precise fashion throughout the supply chain process if they are to remain effective treatments.

Having recognised the stringent requirements of this specialised temperature-critical, time-sensitive market (and structured our business accordingly), we have developed into the supply chain partner of choice for a wide range of pharmaceutical organisations.

We are 100 per cent industry-focused and we have made it our business to deliver flexible and intelligent service for all our customers.
