A global pharmaceutical company with a wide base of contract manufacturers (CMOs) in India had challenges sending finished products to Europe under cold chain-compliant conditions. The biggest problem? A 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. Shipments are collected and transported using LCL consolidated ocean freight service before being de-consolidated in Europe for final distribution through 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.
