Life Sciences Logistics

Expand Your Reach, Cost Effectively, with AIT's Global Life Sciences Logistics Experts

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.
