K+N targets pharmaceuticals industry

Kuehne + Nagel Group is targeting the pharmaceuticals industry with a new air cargo service, KN PharmaChain.

The service provides door-to-door temperature control, a 24 hour alert system, optional wireless temperature measuring and Best Practice (GxP) standards for facilities, working processes and training programmes.

It offers four service levels, depending on the grade of specific temperature control requirements and special handling demands of each shipment.

As an additional option, temperature visibility will be provided by the use of active wireless sensors which record and transmit the shipment temperature throughout the entire transport chain.

“We have developed this product in close cooperation with customers and partners and are convinced that Kuehne + Nagel once again introduces innovative solutions which will set new industry standards,” said Tim Scharwath, executive vice president air logistics.
