Medical Marijuana Distribution Fleet Tracking
The medical marijuana distribution and transportation industry is highly regulated to ensure safety and security for farmers, cultivators, dispensary owners, doctors and patients.
Benefits of Medical Marijuana Distribution Transportation Tracking
Not only does medical logistics fleet tracking mitigate risk and production costs, it is a requirement in every state where marijuana is legal, either recreationally or medically. Additionally, tracking your medical distribution fleet ensures that medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, organs, and more are secure and in the right hands from pick up to delivery every time.
While not federally legal and regulated, each state requires the tracking and tracing of marijuana products, starting from plant to purchase in a store or dispensary. Our medical distribution and fleet tracking systems ensure the security of all medical products, including cannabis.
How Can Fleet Tracking Help My Medical Marijuana Distribution Company?
- Statewide timely deliveries
- Maintain Efficiency & Accuracy
- Legal Requirements for Marijuana Transportation
- Legal requirements for medical and pharmaceutical transportation
Statewide Timely Deliveries
It’s imperative that marijuana and medical deliveries are made on time throughout the state, whether traveling across Michigan, Oregon, California or the United States. A fleet tracking system allows dispatchers and logistics professionals to monitor where their drivers are located, how far through their routes they have traveled, if they are abiding by federal logistics regulations, and when a delivery can be expected. Additionally, using a video tracking system for inside your medical and marijuana couriers ensures that your drivers are abiding by company regulations and state laws.
Maintain Efficiency & Accuracy
The marijuana and pharmaceutical industries are currently under nationwide scrutiny for a variety of reasons. With the legal marijuana industry, it is a new and highly controversial industry with proponents attempting to overthrow states’ rights to legalize despite published scientific studies. Pharmaceuticals, while often beneficial to individuals, have also come under fire in recent years as other drug crises sweep across the nation.
As such, you’ll want to ensure the efficiency and accuracy of your fleet. GPS tracking and video surveillance ensures that your marijuana and medical transportation fleet maintains overall efficiency and accuracy when moving product between farms, processing facilities, packaging facilities and finally dispensaries.
Legal Requirements for Medical Marijuana Transportation
As with many industries in the United States, the marijuana and medical industries enforce regulations to ensure the safety and security of both businesses and consumers. While each state has their own rules and regulations, there are a few legal requirements to be aware of when operating a cannabis transportation fleet:
In many states where marijuana is legal, marijuana couriers – those who are driving marijuana transportation vehicles – are required to have certain transportation licenses. Depending on what state your fleet is operating in, you’ll want to make sure to reach out to the state marijuana regulation agency for information and to retain the necessary licenses.
Every state that has legalized marijuana, whether for recreational or medicinal purposes, has implemented track and trace regulations. As part of these track and trace regulations, marijuana transportation fleets are required to use GPS tracking and fleet cameras.
Additionally, your business may need to be equipped to use certain software to track and trace marijuana products. You can learn more about the types of software that are on the market and which one your state has contracted to assist with their track and trace regulations by contacting your state’s marijuana regulation board.
Legal Requirements for Medical and Pharmaceutical Transportation
The distribution of medical devices and supplies and pharmaceuticals are heavily regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), providing distribution companies with strict guidelines to follow across the United States. However, it’s important to note that each state also has their own regulations and guidelines to follow when transporting medical supplies and devices and pharmaceuticals, so make sure your company has all necessary licenses.
Much like the legal marijuana industry, there are various softwares that may need to be integrated into your fleet to accurately track and trace certain medical devices and pharmaceuticals, so be sure to follow up with those as well.
