Yusen Logistics launches Pharma Gateway in Frankfurt
May 06, 2017: Global healthcare logistics specialist Yusen Logistics has announced the launch of a dedicated pharmaceutical gateway in Frankfurt.
This new operation represents the official launch of Yusen Logistics’ GDP compliant global pharma airfreight services from Germany and is the latest step in the company’s customer-driven development in the pharmaceutical supply chain.
Frankfurt’s global network, frequency of service, choice of carrier, streamlined handling processes and supportive Customs are all part of its high quality pharmaceutical offering.
This new operation has been developed in close consultation with Yusen Logistics’ pharmaceutical customers, who are increasingly looking for new ways to optimise flows within the constraints of GDP. The operation links Yusen Logistics’ German import/export consolidation centre and European road network, to form a true multi-modal hub. This gives Yusen Logistics the flexibility to create efficiencies, driving out cost, providing value to customers in this highly demanding environment.
Yusen Logistics’ European Pharmaceutical Superhighway is already contracted to carry over 2 million pallets this year, providing shared and single use solutions to highly complex supply chain requirements for our customers.
The service is dedicated solely to the stringent requirements of the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, with over 50,000 delivery points in Europe alone. Yusen is currently making 20,000 deliveries per week across 36 countries.
