Pharmaceutical transportation is one of the core businesses for Oriola. Our distribution network, which mostly consists of road transport, covers all of Finland and Sweden. We ensure that pharmaceutical products are delivered to our customers within 24 hours and follow Good Distribution Practice. Pharmaceutical transportation has special characteristics (e.g. temperature control, security and avoidance of contamination) that are based on the quality requirements of the pharmaceutical sector and we make no compromises when complying with them.
Transportation is the largest source of indirect emissions of Oriola operations. In addition to the regulatory requirements associated with pharmaceutical distribution, transportation is planned to be as environmentally efficient as possible. Our long collaboration with transportation companies allows us to ensure a high rate of capacity usage and optimised route planning. We continue our work with our transportation partners to find options to reduce CO2 emissions.
