Healthcare & Pharma

Healthcare / Pharmaceutical Logistics 

Companies in the healthcare sector are confronted with a constantly changing environment. With our innovative and integrated solutions, we can react flexibly to all requirements from pharmaceutical and biotech companies, as well as medical device manufacturers.

Damaged products and medicines that have not been maintained within required temperature ranges can quickly cause life-threatening situations. Reliability is therefore crucial in transporting healthcare products. The DB Schenker supply chain solution ensures that time and temperature sensitive products reach their destination safely and securely. We safeguard the integrity of your product with special handling and monitoring, including complete traceability of shipments, closed cold chain solutions for biological drugs and compliance with all legal regulations. We also establish quality management systems and apply industry standards such as GDP, USP 1079 and QEP.

Our global network integrates air, ocean, and land transport, as well as contract logistics, allowing us to react immediately to any changes in your distribution needs. Also, our multi-modal transportation methods ensure a cost-effective, end-to-end solution for your supply chain.

Additional Services

Dangerous Goods

Dangerous Goods

Due to the risk posed to people and the environment, dangerous cargo cannot be treated like general cargo. It requires special handling and the workforce involved needs additional qualifications. Dangerous cargo is generally not accepted with DB SCHENKERparcel. It's also subject to general acceptance conditions applicable throughout Europe with DB SCHENKERsystem

However, with DB SCHENKERdirect, there are no general restrictions in place. In any case, whichever of these products they choose, customers may always ask their responsible branch office for special agreements. With this policy, DB Schenker covers 98 percent of the demand for ground forwarding services for dangerous cargo.
