Abstract:

The findings in this study clearly point out that the quality of blood and components received by the patient is dependent, to a considerable degree, upon the manner in which the product is packed and expedited through shipping channels. An aggressive research effort directed toward updating the latent cargo coding system, along with the many other often overlooked aspects of blood component logistics, is imperative if satisfactory progress is to be achieved.
