Healthcare & Pharma Logistics Solutions

The reliable delivery of healthcare products can be lifesaving. Which is why we develop supply chain solutions with you to ensure that time- and temperature-sensitive products reach their destination safely. We ensure the integrity of sensitive goods through special handling and monitoring services.

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.
