World Courier, a global specialty logistics provider and a part of Cencora (global pharmaceutical solutions organization; formerly AmerisourceBergen), will open transport stations in three new markets in the United States, expanding its presence and capacity to deliver specialized logistics support as the specialty pharmaceutical market continues to grow.

The transport stations — located in Denver, Indianapolis and San Diego — will expand World Courier’s capacity to store, handle and transport complex specialty pharmaceutical products, including those that require cryogenic storage. The facility in Indianapolis will be equipped with liquid nitrogen (LN2) tanks and charging capabilities, bolstering World Courier’s global network of charging centers and stations.

“As more complex and sensitive pharmaceutical products enter clinical development, the demand for highly specialized logistics continues to increase,” said Matt Virgilio, regional vice president- North America, World Courier. “By expanding our network and capabilities, we are well-positioned to support our partners’ evolving needs and deliver the solutions required to protect products throughout transport — whether it’s a commercially approved cell and gene therapy product or a vaccine in clinical development,” he added.

In addition to the new facilities, which extends World Courier’s network of facilities in North America to 17 sites, it recently launched a Container Freight Station at its New Hyde Park facility in New York. The new solution, coupled with the approval from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, enables World Courier to store shipments in its facility — instead of having them remain with the airline — while awaiting customs clearance. World Courier will also expand its presence in Denmark and Germany and increase its cold chain and cryogenic storage capabilities globally.
