Pharma company extends Arvato contract

International pharmaceutical company Lundbeck has signed a contract with Arvato Services Healthcare for the delivery of its products throughout France and Germany.

Arvato already manages the centralised warehousing and distribution of the entire Lundbeck product range in other countries, including the Netherlands and Benelux.

Under the new contract Arvato will distribute more than 60 per cent of the total European logistics volume of Lundbeck pharmaceuticals from its central distribution centre in Harsewinkel directly to wholesalers, hospitals and pharmacies.

Lundbeck previously had a separate logistics system with its own warehouse and local logistics partners agents in every country. 

Michael Nerloe Kasebeer, supply chain manager at Lundbeck, said: “As a global company, we need partners to support us actively in achieving our goals at an international level. In Arvato Services Healthcare, we have found such a reliable partner.

“The results of this partnership have remained convincing for more than two years and will enable us to stick to our future rollout strategy. The question of when to begin the rollout in Germany and France was therefore just a matter of time for us.”
