Marken acquires three European pharma logistics companies

Durham, North Carolina, USA: Marken has acquired HRTL, based in Italy, along with two companies in Austria and Hungary under the respective names of HETO and Der Kurier.

Together, the group operates with offices in Vienna, Milan, Rome, and Gyor (near Budapest) to deliver 7,000 clinical trial shipments per month.

The acquisition further strengthens Marken’s commitment to providing logistics services to the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries in Europe.

The move will enable Marken too expand its core clinical trials logistics opportunities in Central and Eastern Europe. Italy, Hungary and Austria are important sources of drug manufacturing, particularly drugs that are manufactured in sterile format. Sterile drug products are particularly sensitive and require specific temperature conditions during transport to ensure stability.

The move brings Marken’s total network of sites to 51, including 10 GMP qualified clinical storage depots.
