Seafreight Pharma Transports

The pharmaceutical and healthcare industry faces great challenges: stricter regulation, increasing R&D and supply chain costs, and patent expiry. With growing expectations for temperature-controlled transportation, the consequence of error is magnified while budget for transportation is declining.

Kuehne + Nagel meets the demanding requirements of the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry by means of certified logistics concept. This includes, for example, the compliance with exact temperature ranges as well as the provision of special trans-shipment places and storage locations. Shipments are carried out in specific transport containers such as seafreight reefer containers and multi-zone thermo trucks.
