Cargo consolidation solution delivers pharma products from contract manufacturers in India to Europe

​A global pharmaceutical company with a wide base of contract manufacturers (CMOs) in India was having multiple challenges sending its finished products from India to Europe under cold chain compliant conditions. The biggest problem was the lack of GDP compliant facilities and equipment. The company also wanted to improve its container utilization rate and implement a reliable de-consolidation service model for end-market distribution in Europe.

Utilizing our Pharmaceutical Competence Centre at Nhava Sheva Port in Mumbai, Agility manages and oversees the customer’s supply of products from point-of-order to delivery. The shipments are collected and transported using LCL consolidated ocean freight service before they are de-consolidated in Europe for final distribution using a temperature-controlled trucking network. The fully GDP certified facility in India is also Customs bonded in accordance with local tax legislation.

Trained drivers and warehouse staff ensure reliable on-the-ground handling to maintain product integrity in terms of security, quality and temperature deviation. Agility’s tracking tool provides the customer with full supply chain visibility at stock keeping unit (SKU) level. The result is a cost-effective and compliant solution that ensures supply chain visibility and cold chain integrity for the customer.​​​​​​
