Va-Q-tec partners with Worldwide Logistics to boost China trade

Würzburg, Germany: Va-Q-tec is to open a TempChain Service Center in Shanghai in partnership with Worldwide Logistics.

China’s pharma market is the second biggest globally after the US and projected to reach US$200bn by 2022.

Local pharma companies are growing faster than average and major global healthcare players are pushing into the country where there is big potential. The annual growth rates of the demand for temperature- controlled transport and storage are the highest in the world – for outbound business and domestic distribution.

Va-Q-tec provides, in partnership with Worldwide Logistics, container and box rental. The company says its TempChain Service Centre in Shanghai is the gate to the entire Chinese market. “We have already gained business with leading players in China which rely on our advanced passive door-to-door thermal container solutions. But the market is not only relevant for pharma and biotech products but also other temperature sensitive products such as high performance glues, components for the semiconductor industry and chemicals,” Va-Q-tec said in a statement.

Henry Pek, Worldwide Logistics said: “In the Shanghai TempChain Service Centre Worldwide Logistics will receive, inspect, clean, pre-condition, prepare, load and release container as well as boxes from Va-Q-tec. In addition we will manage the entire transportation management plus custom formalities.”

“In the future also a direct trade facilitation or an engagement in Sales and Marketing is possible. With the TSC in Shanghai it is possible to cover both the south and the north of China with reliable services even with strong growth in the Chinese region.”
