With these two additions to DHL’s operations in the Americas, the delivery firm now owns 28 global centres which distribute pharmaceutical supplies as well as medical and biotech devices.
Head of Business Development Life Sciences & Healthcare, DHL Americas, Marco Quiros, said:
“Our facilities and specialized services give us greater flexibility to control customers’ freight when incidents occur by having 24×7 visibility, and an infrastructure in place to recover freight and store it, maintaining its integrity.”
DHL has described this move as a response to demand from customers for materials to be handled using specialised equipment and adopting operational standards, in keeping up with changes in the industry.
“As a result of a series of Life Sciences training sessions that took place in 2011, our employees in Miami and Atlanta, as well as throughout the Americas, are highly equipped to handle all medical products.”
