Rhenus Air & Ocean UK has launched a life sciences and healthcare department. Located at a newly refurbished site in Ashford, close to Heathrow Airport, it is the first warehouse of its kind in Europe for the Rhenus Group. Within North-West Europe, the specialist facility is a one-stop-shop for all import and export logistics, offering a white glove service for temperature-controlled storage and distribution from end to end. It follows news of a move towards more sustainable logistics.
Based within a four-mile radius of Heathrow Airport, Britain’s aviation hub and gateway connecting the UK to over 80 long-haul destinations, the new department will serve a broad spectrum of customers in the life sciences and healthcare industries.
Led by industry experts Marie-Louise Watkins, Head of Life Sciences and Healthcare for North-West Europe, and Jayne Fox, UK Life Sciences and Healthcare Manager, the launch will see Rhenus take on responsibility for all operations within the life sciences supply chain.
Watkins explains: “This is a brand-new venture for Rhenus in the UK that will deliver service excellence to our customers. With the patient at the forefront of our minds, our focus is on quality and compliance, providing our customers with industry expertise and solutions to ensure the safe and secure handling of pharmaceutical and medical products.”
