The standards within our portfolio of services are dominated by our high degree of responsibility towards people, who require pharmaceutical products or medical engineering equipment. We comply with the statutory requirements of national markets when we act as a specialist partner and take over the tasks assigned to us by industry with the necessary expertise and care along the complete supply chain.
The active ingredients for many pharmaceutical products, including headache pills, come from Asia. We supply the liquid or solid Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) for you by seagoing vessels so that they can be further processed in Europe, for example. Medical engineering goods move in the opposite direction through our global network of business sites and partners, by air freight if required, in order to improve doctors’ ability to diagnose diseases all over the world.
Holder of the Pharmaceutical Manufacturer’s and Wholesale Dealer’s Licence
Successful pharmaceutical logistics is largely defined by the need to comply with the most stringent regulations. That is why the company-wide GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) quality assurance system and ISO 13485 are used at our warehouses that supply production facilities. We have the Pharmaceutical Manufacturer’s and Wholesale Dealer’s Licence in Germany, which obliges us to work in line with the GDP (Good Distribution Practice) guidelines and allows us to process secondary packaging materials. The clean room cabinets at our logistics centres enable our trained employees to take samples and so prevent more stopping points in your supply chain that would trigger additional costs.
Highest standards for our truck equipment and availability is decisive
When it comes to transporting pharmaceuticals, we only work with our “Preferred Partner” programme service providers and carriers, which meet the highest technical specifications in terms of equipment. This has to comply with the latest standards to maintain the cold chain, particularly for temperature-controlled traffic in this sector. The cleanness of the loading areas is also subject to constant checks.
We provide extensive transport services using our existing European network; we comply with the highest quality standards and adhere to the requirements and benchmarks applicable to the sector (SQAS, ISO 9001 and 14001). Our network can also transport almost all hazardous substances with only a few exceptions. Do you need to use dry ice? Then get in touch with us!
Our high-tech specialist uses its expertise and correct apparatus to distribute laboratory and diagnosis machines properly; the sensitivity of these devices calls for great care when conveying and transhipping them. Rhenus High Tech technical staff also install medical engineering products at doctors’ practices and hospitals.
Rhenus Office Systems is a services provider certified in line with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) in the field of document logistics. As manufacturers of pharmaceutical products are obliged to store data from clinical studies used to test medication, for example, we can support them in this task as an approved filing services provider.
