The Rhenus Group has become a member of PharmacomItalia, the first Italian technical community of experts in end-to-end pharmaceutical product management and professional training in pharmaceutical logistics.

This follows the opening of the Life Sciences & Healthcare vertical within Rhenus’ Air & Ocean division in Italy.

The admission of the Rhenus Group to PharmacomItalia is expected to help further develop the German logistics company’s expertise in the pharmaceutical sector.

The collaboration with PharmacomItalia will allow Rhenus to share its knowledge and expertise in the transportation of pharmaceutical goods, participate in working groups on technical issues and visit production facilities and service platforms such as airports, seaports and second-line warehouses.

In addition, Rhenus will actively collaborate in the creation of standard qualification models for the various operators in the logistics supply chain.

“Rhenus is proud to join PharmacomItalia,” said Andrea Battaglia, head of life sciences & healthcare at Rhenus Air & Ocean in Italy. “This partnership will enable us to become a key player in pharmaceutical logistics in Italy.

“Rhenus, with its proven expertise and commitment to the highest quality standards, is ready to meet the logistics challenges of the industry, ensuring compliance with current regulations and maximum safety in the transport of pharmaceutical goods.”

“We are grateful to Rhenus for joining PharmacomItalia. Our association, and the joint project we represent, grows and strengthens with the companies that proactively participate in our initiatives and through the vision they also express within the community,” added Fabrizio Iacobacci, president of PharmacomItalia.
