Laminar picks Gefco for global distribution

Laminar Media has appointed Gefco as its global logistics partner with responsibility for the transport of the firm’s packaging systems to customers in India, Canada and the UAE.

Laminar designs, tests, and manufactures insulated shipping systems, used by the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, from its manufacturing facility in Hertfordshire.

Logistics manager Ed Fletcher-Wells said: “We chose Gefco UK because of the great relationship we have developed with them and the overall service levels and competitiveness they can offer. We were also impressed by Gefco’s global network and straight talking, no nonsense approach to business.”

Gefco UK will use its secured Good Distribution Practice service, which ensures products are consistently stored, transported and handled under suitable conditions as required by the marketing authorisation or product specification. Pharma Grade Reefer containers will be used to protect pharmaceutical grade sensitive.
