Marken opens Shanghai pharma logistics centre

Marken has announced the opening of an office in Shanghai, China. The logistics operations centre will be used to serve many of Marken’s pharmaceutical clients in Shanghai, Suzhou and surrounding areas.

The facility is strategically located to provide regional distribution and supply chain logistics services for pharmaceutical products and medical devices for the clinical trials industry. Located close to both the Hongqiao and Pudong airports, the new office within the Zhangjiang high tech district is also in close proximity to several of Marken’s existing pharma clients.

Temperature controlled vehicles will join Marken’s fleet to provide ground transportation for time and temperature sensitive shipments. Marken’s growth in the number of offices, depots and now growing number of full time employees in China is tied to the company’s strategy to develop in-market capabilities for its clients.

Marken’s Chief Executive Officer, Wes Wheeler said, “We are very proud to welcome the Shanghai team to the global Marken network of offices. These logistical experts bring many years of relevant experience to the organization, and the physical presence of this new office now expands the number of clients Marken can serve within the Asia Pacific region. Our opening of the Shanghai office compliments the existing Beijing office and, combined with a fully certified GDP depot, works together seamlessly to provide complete services to our China-based clients.”
