XPO Logistics expands its presence in healthcare logistics through a palletized distribution network

XPO, a leading provider of innovative and sustainable end-to-end logistics solutions across Europe, is expanding its presence in the healthcare sector through an innovative palletized distribution network. This network has been structured to respond even more effectively to the needs of healthcare companies whose products for transport and storage are subject to regulations and precise processes. 
 
From the development of technologies enabling real-time tracking of products to the training of its teams, XPO Logistics has gone one step further with its "Healthcare" offering. This includes training all its teams to ensure compliance with the principles of Good Distribution Practices, which are essential for guaranteeing the safe supply of medicines and pharmaceutical products from supplier to patient. 
 
The XPO Logistics palletized distribution network in France, together with its industry expertise and agility, enable the company to guarantee the delivery of healthcare products within 24 to 48 hours throughout the country, in compliance with applicable regulations. The sector's specific needs, such as the constraints of urban delivery, can be effectively addressed as well. XPO already has six CERTIPHARM-certified sites and plans to have a fully certified network in place.   
 
Healthcare-pharmaceutical expertise already developed by XPO Logistics

This new "Healthcare" service, targeting healthcare products, medical devices and parapharmaceuticals, complements benefits already provided by XPO Logistics to healthcare companies, including temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics, along with dedicated and international transport services. By strengthening its range of solutions with a palletized distribution network, XPO Logistics will be able to meet the growing needs of the pharmaceutical market in France, which is expected to grow at an average annual rate of +5 to 6% through 2027*. 
 
Frédéric Aziron, director of less-than-truckload and last mile - France, XPO Logistics, said: "We are proud to expand our range of solutions with this new ambient temperature delivery service for healthcare products destined for pharmacies and hospitals. Our training for our teams, our fleet of vehicles and our expertise in urban last-mile delivery enable us to offer a high-performance service. We've stepped up our game in recent months to deliver even more for our customers, and it's with some pride that we're receiving positive feedback from them as they benefit from our enhanced services”. 
 
Today, the company serves more than fifty customers in the healthcare industry and aims to double its healthcare revenue by 2030, while progressively certifying its sites.
