DHL on board at launch of healthcare logistics association

DHL Supply Chain has become a founding member of the European Association for Healthcare Logistics and Transport.

The newly formed EALTH has been instituted to increase the awareness on the expertise and knowledge of professionals involved in the pharmaceutical supply chain among policy makers and the health public and private sectors.

DHL’s Eddy De Vita, managing director, life sciences and healthcare, EMEA, has been elected to the board as vice president. He said: “EALTH is an extremely important pharmaceutical sector initiative as it represents the first not-for-profit European association for logistics and transport in the healthcare sector. Joining this association from the very beginning provides us with a strategic opportunity to achieve the aim of sharing best distribution practice, in particular by improving security in the healthcare supply chain all over Europe.”

Dr Jean-Francois Fusco, president of the EALTH said: “We are delighted to work with DHL and together with other members seeking improvements for the European healthcare supply chain.”
