The transportation of laboratory specimens and raw materials for advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMP) is challenging due to the need for strict temperature control and limited delivery periods. Such transportation must be conducted with care to prevent damage or compression, which may compromise the viability and stability of the specimens. Unlike other types of materials, transportation of specimens requires more complex control measures to ensure their usefulness in laboratory examinations and biological processes. Any damage or deterioration during transportation could significantly affect patient diagnosis and treatment. The transportation logistics system for these specimens contains sensitive personal information related to patient safety and life preservation. Hence, good control, tracking, and traceability are crucial to ensure safe transportation. This research recommends an IoT-based temperature-controlled logistics system for laboratory specimens, using Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) to efficiently manage the transportation process. This system aims to maintain specimen stability and viability, thus ensuring the safety and quality of patient treatment. Thai transport and logistics service providers can implement this system to enhance transportation safety and quality.
