Yusen Logistics launches pharma gateway in Frankfurt

Yusen Logistics has launched a dedicated pharmaceutical gateway in Frankfurt as it looks to grow business in Europe.

This new operation represents the launch of Yusen Logistics’ GDP compliant global pharma airfreight services from Germany and is the latest step in the company’s customer-driven development in the pharma supply chain.

The company says Frankfurt’s global network, frequency of service, choice of carrier, streamlined handling processes and supportive Customs are all part of its “high quality pharma offering”.

This new operation has been developed in close consultation with Yusen Logistics’ pharma customers, who are increasingly looking for new ways to optimise flows within the constraints of GDP.

The operation links Yusen Logistics’ German import/export consolidation centre and European road network, to form a true multi-modal hub.

This Yusen Logistics explains gives it the flexibility to create efficiencies, driving out cost, providing value to customers.

Yusen Logistics’ European ‘Pharmaceutical Superhighway’ is already contracted to carry over two million pallets this year.

The service is dedicated to the pharma and healthcare industry, with over 50,000 delivery points in Europe alone. Yusen currently makes 20,000 deliveries per week across 36 countries.
