SANDKI 360° powered by MIXMOVE

Share

Skandi Network is the first unified network for healthcare distribution throughout Europe for human & veterinary healthcare products.

The network offers healthcare temperature-controlled transport for parcels and 1 to 5 pallet(s) shipments throughout 25 countries. Skandi Network is composed of 7 members who are all leading healthcare carriers. The main challenge of the network is to operate cross border transport shipments that involve cross docking operations.

Having end-to-end visibility is already a challenge with one carrier but operating multi-county and multi-carrier operations at the same time is even more challenging. As we are transporting temperature sensitive healthcare products, we must guarantee that the products are transported in alignment with the GDP regulation and that temperature is monitored and always guaranteed. It is also important that our customers can have access to that information in real time.” -Rudy Smets, CEO of Skandi Network.

For these reasons, Skandi Network teamed up with MIXMOVE to develop a unique collaborative platform - Skandi 360° - to consolidate all operational and analytical data flows for all shipments going through the network.

One view and one access to the best-in-class healthcare transport network in Europe

Skandi Network is about giving access to the best-in-class healthcare transport network in Europe, working with 7 domestic leading freight forwarders. Skandi 360° will provide a coordinated solution to the market and its different stakeholders, giving them real time access and control of the first pan-European healthcare transport network (having over 4,780 vehicles and 165 temperature-controlled depots).

Connecting to Skandi 360° will allow them to expand, and/or optimise, their own capacities in a consolidated approach.

CO2 emissions reduction

In addition, Skandi 360° will also give an opportunity to reduce the carbon footprint and the cost of ownership throughout the whole transport chain. This includes:

- Consolidation of flows,

- Optimisation of logistics networks via regional distribution centres,

- No additional passive packaging needed in the network,

- And a reduction of damages and product loss during transport thanks to temperature monitoring.

Digitalising Logistics with MIXMOVE

MIXMOVE can integrate a very large amount of information and data coming from different sources and IT systems (like TMS, telematic systems, WMS, ERP). The MIXMOVE technology turns vertical and independent data flows into a flexible and consolidated One view/One access to data, all the way up to parcel/shipment level.

MIXMOVE also makes it possible to combine transport network functionalities and collaborative platform functionalities. This enables the management of the transport network in a lean and efficient way, creating real added value for all users of Skandi Network.

MIXMOVE tailors its technology to suit specific constraints linked to the healthcare transport business, including the regulations around integrating quality management, real-time temperature follow-up (including corrective and preventive actions), and POD’s that include an end-to-end temperature curve.

We have chosen MIXMOVE for their proven expertise in the global supply chain and their proven technology to manage complex transport network operations. They use an advanced cloud-based technology with API connectivity. The MIXMOVE solution offers a capability to connect different systems and different tools (TMS, WMS, telematic systems…) seamlessly to the platform. This is what we needed, first to allow all members to be connected, and second to allow all external stakeholders, such as logistic service providers, to plug themselves into the platform and use our network." – Rudy Smets, CEO of Skandi Network.

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 07:00:00 CET | Press release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). In the E.U. there are currently only symptomatic treatments for FOP, which do not reduce the formation of extra-skeletal bone in patients with the condition. Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
