A global pharmaceutical company based in Germany faces many regulatory and logistical challenges distributing its temperature-sensitive products – requiring controlled room temperature and cold chain transportation – from eight different European countries. Complying with these needs and EU GDP regulations can drive up shipping costs, affect profit margins and complicate an already complex distribution process.

To meet dual goals of efficiency and compliance, the company needed a centrally controlled supply chain to transport its products across borders in temperature-controlled vehicles within 24 to 48 hours. Agility generated direct and indirect savings of as much as 30% by creating an LTL road freight solution; using its expertise in both freight forwarding and the life sciences industry to implement a sustainable system with a dedicated 24/7 customer desk and constant GPS tracking for full transparency and GDP compliance.
