Kuehne+Nagel launches pharmaceutical services

Schindellegi, Switzerland: Kuehne+Nagel is rolling out KN PharmaChain providing door-to-door temperature control deliveries with  24-hour alert system, optional wireless temperature measuring, and Best Practice (GxP) standards for facilities, working processes and training programmes, for the pharmaceutical industry.

“KN PharmaChain is our dedicated, end-to-end supply chain solution for Pharma & Healthcare shipments, either temperature or non-temperature controlled. We have developed this product in close cooperation with customers and partners and are convinced that Kuehne+Nagel once again introduces innovative solutions which will set new industry standards”, says Tim Scharwath, executive vice president air logistics of Kuehne+Nagel International AG.

KN PharmaChain offers four service levels, depending on the grade of specific temperature control requirements and special handling demands of each shipment.

“Full risk assessments of carrier partners as well as of transport lanes ensure best-in-class services on all routes within the KN PharmaChain network comprising of 58 strategically designated stations,” the company says.

“Comprehensive Best Practice (GxP) policies apply for staff, working processes and facilities, and by the end of 2012, all locations will be fully GxP-compliant.

“As an option, temperature visibility can be provided by the use of active wireless sensors which record and transmit the shipment temperature throughout the entire transport chain. Logistics facilities are equipped with active wireless transmitting technology and customers can view temperature indications directly inside the KN Login online tracking & tracing tool.

“Kuehne+Nagel is the first logistics provider to offer a service using active sensors. Temperature controlled shipments are monitored by the KN PharmaChain CareTeam from two locations in Europe and the Americas. An electronic alert system ensures that any disruption in the supply chain will be reported immediately to the CareTeam which is pro-actively tracking all temperature controlled shipments.
