Yusen Logistics is enhancing its coverage of the EMEA region in response to demand from pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Yusen Logistics’ European Pharmaceutical Superhighway is already contracted to carry over one million pallets this year and this growth is set to continue as more manufacturers buy into this high security service. The service provides cross border, temperature controlled coverage, with flexible GDP compliant solutions, ensuring complete product integrity and legislative compliance.

Healthcare manufacturers are on an increasing scale searching for innovative solutions to move their products to those geographic areas which have previously proved challenging, whilst maintaining a stringent temperature regime at all times. Maximising availability of stock, whilst minimising risk in the supply chain are behind the growing demand for bespoke solutions to specialist requirements.

David Young, Business Development Manager and Global Airfreight Specialist, commented: "We’re seeing increased demand for specialist shipments for temperature controlled pharmaceutical export product, recent examples being to Afghanistan and African countries, such as Ghana, South Africa and Uganda. Maintaining quality and avoiding temperature excursions at all times is key, with specialist passive packaging from small boxes to multiple pallet shipments being utilised."

Such airfreight movements are managed by the Yusen Logistics air freight teams based at Heathrow, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Milan with coordination from the Healthcare Superhighway Control Tower. A range of carriers and airports are utilised according to the specific requirements of the client.

The Control Tower offers clients of all sizes a single centre to manage their global supply chain flows, together with a full range of customs and fiscal services, linking into Yusen Logistics offices around the world.
