Swedish pharma deal for DHL

Swedish pharmaceutical company Quickacy has signed a three-year logistics agreement with DHL Supply Chain.

The agreement includes co-packing and distribution of non-prescription drugs which Quickacy re-pack and sell in small packages via new sales channels, such as ferries, trains and bus stations.

The warehousing, packaging and distribution of Quickacy’s products is managed by DHL’s site at Örebro, which is designed to manage temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals.

Quickacy” local trademark in Sweden is Snabboteket. CEO Johan Bergenholtz said: “DHL is a global company which is an obvious advantage to us since we are planning to establish our business in Europe and we have their support in doing that. Furthermore, DHL has a strong brand and organization which we are happy to be associated with.”

De-regulation of the pharmacy market in Sweden has provided opportunities for new logistics solutions, opening up the market for more players with innovative ideas.
