Help With Med Chain of Custody

Hello- When patients receive medications via Patient Assistance Programs, they reach our infusion center by being shipped/signed for by the hospital's receiving dock staff where they are parsed and then delivered to the pharmacy. We have recently had a couple instances where the (expensive) medications have gone MIA after being signed for at the dock. Wondering if anyone has a more fool-proof method for keeping chain of custody from receiving dock to pharmacy they can share. Hoping for something beyond just following the package tracking information. Thanks.
