Pelican BioThermal opens Mexico City centre

Mexico City, Mexico: Pelican BioThermal has opened a service centre in Mexico City.

Mexico is the second largest pharmaceutical market in Latin America — and the 12th in the world — with more than $1.75bn in pharmaceutical exports since 2015.

The Mexico City network station will service, refurbish, repair and condition Pelican BioThermal’s reusable Crēdo on Demand shippers. 
 
Mexico’s pharmaceutical exports — primarily prophylactic, therapeutic, antibiotic and hormonal products — have increased on average 2.6% per year. These exports are mainly shipped to the United States, Switzerland, Panama, Venezuela and Colombia.

In addition, Mexico City has the highest number of pharmaceutical businesses in Mexico, and 40 percent of the industry’s economic activity in Mexico is concentrated in the 10 largest companies.
 
“The pharmaceutical market in Mexico has become increasingly favorable in recent years, making it a prime location to add our network station and service center,” said Dominic Hyde, vice president of Crēdo on Demand.

“Our Crēdo on Demand rental program will give pharmaceutical innovators in the region more convenient and flexible shipping options along with the ability to reduce costs and advance sustainability goals with reusable shippers.” 
 
Pelican BioThermal’s Crēdo on Demand shippers provide a rental option for temperature-controlled containers such as Crēdo Cargo, Crēdo Xtreme and Crēdo Cube. The Crēdo on Demand rental program allows organisations to choose the shipper application that best fits their company’s requirements, logistics profile and budget.
