Marken and ACRES announce partnership


Marken, the clinical logistics organization, and the Alliance for Clinical Research Excellence and Safety (ACRES), a multi-sector non-profit dedicated to clinical research, have created a strategic partnership with the goal of enhancing the precision, speed and transparency of the storage and transport of clinical trial materials around the world.

Using an integrated logistics model as a centralized approach to consolidate ancillary items allows Marken to serve its clients as one global partner offering end-to-end solutions with one global depot and warehouse network; one global inventory management system; greater buying power through centralized procurement; and consolidated shipments.

ACRES is working to bring together organizations, companies and individuals from all facets of the clinical research sector to work together to build a shared global system for safe, high-performance, clinical research. “Marken’s service model nicely aligns with the initiatives ACRES has already begun and will be a great support in developing a comprehensive clinical research system,” said Greg Koski, ACRES Co-founder and CEO.

Wes Wheeler, Marken’s Chief Executive Officer said, “We look forward to using our experience and expertise to guide the clinical supply logistics component of ACRES endeavour to create a collaborative global system for clinical research.”
