Cost effective intercontinental shipping relies heavily on oceanic vessels, which in turn use a variety of shipping containers to streamline the process. Standardization of sizing allows transport ships to plan and store the maximum amount of cargo per voyage. Since its inception in the 1950s, Intermodal container shipping implemented by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) became the most popular method for transporting large cargo. Oceanic vessels designed for cargo transport are designed based on the amount of containers they hold.
The increase of pharmaceutical manufacturing in other parts of the world—like India, Mexico, China, and Brazil—has brought forth new transport challenges making the cold chain highly complex. These include regulatory issues, transport delays (at the airport or due to poor roads), extreme temperature ranges, and harsh climatic conditions.
