INDUSTRY FOCUS

pharmaceuticals

The Pharmaceutical sector is presented with a range difficult challenges: growing cost pressures affecting bottom lines, regulatory requirements continue to change, sometimes with little warning. While globalization generates more opportunities, it also brings more competition.   In these circumstances, a well-managed global supply chain is critical to your success.

Horizon provides Freight Forwarding and Logistics services for the healthcare sector that are designed to manage the global physical movement and visibility requirements across large and complex global supply chains.

Pharmaceutical shipping has specialized demands.   Whether medications are temperature-sensitive or time-sensitive — or both — clients need to know exactly where their products are and their condition.   To comply with safety regulations, clients need to prove the condition of their products.   Clearing these hurdles is easier with the right logistics infrastructure in place.

To support our Pharmaceutical clients, Horizon International provides both standard and specialist transportation solutions, including where a temperature controlled environment is required. Warehouse management systems ensure a dust free and temperature controlled environment is maintained for pick and pack and general inventory management.

Express Shipments and Time Critical Movements are precisely managed and controlled for sensitive and urgent consignments. This may include expedited customs solutions, hand carry services and small parcel services involving detailed planning.

Where products are larger and require specialist handling services, Horizon deploys specially trained driver crews to place products at their final location and remove all packaging material from site.
