Nancy Matthews named as global lead for life sciences at Crane

Crane Worldwide Logistics, a US full-service air, ocean, trucking, customs brokerage and logistics company, has named Nancy Matthews as its new senior director and vertical lead of life sciences.

Matthews will take charge of the US headquartered company’s global strategy for the life sciences market, developing customised logistics solutions for customers such as Medtronic and St. Jude Medical.

“Nancy’s leadership experience and proven ability to provide exceptional solutions for challenging and sensitive logistics projects makes her a perfect fit to lead the success of our life sciences approach,” declared president and chief executive John Magee.

“Acting as a trusted adviser to the life sciences vertical is a key focus for Crane,” Matthews informed.
“Life science customers have vital, fast-moving supply chains, often with added complexities such as temperature control, strict time constraints, and regulatory and compliance considerations.
“We can bring great value to these customers.”
Last month (August), Crane opened its latest office and warehouse at London Heathrow.
The 3,150 sq m facility at the UK’s biggest air gateway will offer increased warehouse space, e-commerce support, pick and pack operations and labelling, the company confirmed.
