 Pelican BioThermal Announces Partnership with Zuellig Pharma in Asia

 

Pelican BioThermal™, a global leader providing the broadest and most innovative range of temperature-controlled packaging solutions serving the life sciences industry, announced its new partnership with Asia’s Zuellig Pharma.

The pharma partnership further strengthens Pelican BioThermal’s developing services in Asia and the new contract, will see Zuellig Pharma in Vietnam utilize reusable Crēdo™ products and Crēdo™ Cube for parcel shipments.  Additional products being used to transport pharma products include the Crēdo™ Xtreme for bulk shipment, ProMed and DuraCube.

The benefits for the deployment of the Crēdo™ products include robust controlled-temperature reliability based on elimination of thermal excursions and low cost of ownership due to the reusable nature of the product.

To ensure maximum efficiency of the Crēdo™ systems Zuellig Pharma will undergo training on repair, cleaning and refurbishment services and will employ Crēdo ProEnvision™ software to manage assets throughout the distribution, return, refurbishment and restocking processes.

Pelican BioThermal provided consulting services along with Cold Chain Optimization studies as part of the partnership to demonstrate to Zuellig Pharma recommend solutions designed for their operating environment, which will encompass packaging, logistics and warehouse operations. The consultation also provided vital information on the best facilities to condition their Crēdo systems and how to conduct refurbishment services in these facilities. The consultation ensures the delivery of quality control processes and operational efficiency to maximize cost savings.

Established in 1922, Zuellig Pharma is Asia’s leading healthcare services provider offering a broad range of innovative services including distribution of pharmaceuticals, medical devices and clinical trial materials, sales and marketing outsourcing, patient-centered programs, payor solutions (third party administration services) and a full range of retail pharmacy services.
