World Courier targets pharma demand with new US facilities
Logistics firm World Courier will open three new stations in North America to support growing pharma volumes.
The Cencora-owned company will add facilities in Denver, Indianapolis and San Diego to expand its capacity to store, handle and transport pharma products, including those that require cryogenic storage.
The facility in Indianapolis will be equipped with liquid nitrogen (LN2) tanks and charging capabilities, the company added.
Matt Virgilio, regional vice president of North America for World Courier, said: “As more complex and sensitive pharmaceutical products enter clinical development, the demand for highly specialized logistics continues to increase.
“By expanding our network and capabilities, we are well-positioned to support our partners’ evolving needs and deliver the solutions required to protect products throughout transport — whether it’s a commercially approved cell and gene therapy product or a vaccine in clinical development.”
The company also recently opened a Container Freight Station at its New York facility so that it can store shipments instead of having them remain with the airline while awaiting customs clearance.
“The new facilities in the US and phased rollout of Container Freight Stations are the latest in an ongoing series of investments World Courier has undertaken to enhance and expand its capabilities globally,” the company said.
The company said it is also looking to expand its presence in Denmark and Germany and has recently invested in tracking technology.
Nick Porter, president of World Courier, added: “These continued investments enable to evolve alongside our partners and deliver the specialty logistics solutions needed to support the unique requirements of the products being developed today.”
