DHL clinches Swedish pharma deal

Orebro, Sweden:  DHL Supply Chain has won a three-year logistics deal with Swedish pharmaceutical company Quickacy. The agreement includes co-packing and distribution of non-prescription drugs which Quickacy re-pack and sell in small packages via new sales channels, such as ferries and trains.

DHL Supply Chain’s site at Örebro, designed to manage temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals, handles the warehousing, packaging and distribution of Quickacy’s products.

Quickacy’s local trademark in Sweden is Snabboteket.  Chief executive of Snabboteket, Johan Bergenholtz, said: “DHL is a global company which is an obvious advantage to us since we are planning to establish our business in Europe and we have their support in doing that. Furthermore, DHL has a strong brand and organization which we are happy to be associated with.”

De-regulation of the pharmacy market in Sweden has provided opportunities for new logistics solutions, opening up the market for more players with innovative ideas.

“We are looking forward to working with Quickacy. They are an innovative company and with our long experience in co-packing, this agreement fits perfectly with our capabilities,” said Eva Carlsson, b business development manager at DHL Supply Chain.
