What are life sciences logistics?
Life sciences logistics is the specialized transportation – via air, road, rail, and sea – for companies that produce pharmaceuticals, biotechnology-based medicines, medical devices, and/or biomedical technologies. These shipments may require additional services, including customs clearance, warehouse management (cold and shelf-stable), white glove delivery, and more.
Streamline your life sciences value chain when you entrust the shipping process to AIT's professionals
AIT Worldwide Logistics takes on the unique challenges of life science businesses, managing logistics solutions to deliver life-saving medicines, transport temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals or distribute samples for clinical trials to destinations around the world.
