Pharma contract for Yusen

UK pharmaceutical company ProStrakan has taken on Yusen Logistics for its international supply chain.

The service covers both air-freight and temperature-controlled container shipping as well as pan-European road transport. Air freight is organised between the US and the Far East and between India and the UK, while temperature controlled container shipping is organised between Europe and the US.

The European operation involves the temperature-controlled distribution of product from ProStrakan’s manufacturing plants to delivery points throughout Europe by means of Yusen’s  “Pharmaceutical Superhighway” – a transport network linking specialist hubs that consolidate/load share and cross-dock product for onward delivery.

Nick Whitaker, supply chain manager at ProStrakan, which is based in Galashiels, said: “We were looking for a genuine one stop shop for our international supply chain requirements.”
