FedEx introduces new healthcare solutions into EMEA
FedEx Express has boosted the healthcare region across the EMEA region with a new portfolio of temperature sensitive solutions. The new solutions are “designed to help healthcare supply chains manage a range of opportunities linked to globalisation and new outsourcing strategies,” as well as allowing companies to “navigate the complexities of freight management as they expand their operations into new global territories”.
With pharmaceutical centers of excellence shifting rapidly from established industries to new emerging markets, the need for temperature controlled solutions has never been more critical for healthcare companies.
The FedEx Express said its range of temperature-controlled shipping solutions includes having “one of the broadest dry ice capabilities in the world, with re-icing at major hubs and ramps in EMEA. Temperature controlled solutions are further complemented by FedEx thermally mapped vehicles and aircraft.”
FedEx Express is now offering a range of temperature-controlled packaging solutions from cold to ambient temperature, parcel to airfreight and from traditional dry ice capabilities to more innovative greener technologies for cold chain solutions.
Carlo Novi, managing director, Global Accounts for FedEx Express said: “FedEx Express is the carrier of choice for the healthcare industry when it comes to delivering time and temperature sensitive goods around the globe.
“Our broad range of solutions, coupled with our international capabilities and global network of integrated services, offers customers a unique proposition. We are constantly innovating to find new solutions which will help our healthcare customers manage their supply chains at a time when the industry is under heightened scrutiny from regulators and the government in terms of product safety.
“At FedEx, we see ourselves as the ‘orchestrators’ of the healthcare industry supply chain, sitting at the centre of a complex web of packaging, transportation and distribution technologies which we employ to connect to customers around the world.
“The dynamic shifts in the marketplace open up unprecedented opportunities for healthcare companies and FedEx can help these businesses thrive by providing the best freight management solutions.”
