Consolidating pharma products creates 30% savings
A global pharmaceutical company based in Germany faces many regulatory and logistical challenges distributing products from eight European countries: Austria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Its products require controlled-room temperature and cold chain transportation. Complying with EU regulations for Good Distribution Practices (GDP) can drive up shipping costs, impact profit margins and complicate an already complex distribution process. This company needed a centrally controlled system to ship products within 24 to 48 hours. Agility’s Life Sciences industry and freight forwarding expertise generated direct and indirect savings of up to 30% by creating an LTL road freight solution. Agility dedicated a 24/7 customer desk with constant GPS tracking, enabling full transparency and GDP compliance.
