27 / 04 / 2016
The EGA Group and SkyCell Switzerland have signed an exclusivity deal for the leasing and distribution of pharma containers in Brazil.
“The partnership aims to offer logistics solutions, exclusive and dedicated especially for pharmaceutical logistics, reducing costs in door-to-door shipments, ensuring quality without any environmental impact in controlling the product temperature”, said Eduardo Assumpção, president of EGA Group.
According to estimates by the World Health Organization (WHO) about 50% of the vaccines produced worldwide reaches its destination deteriorated.
The biggest flaw in the cold chain involving these products is maintaining temperature, which comprimises the quality of the product.
The SkyCell solution for the Brazilian market looks into every step of the logistics process for a simple and effective implementation without additional task to the customer by including the reverse logistics of containers.
According to Bernhard Baertschi, SkyCell head of global sales, the goal of the Swiss company is to achieve a market share of 50% in Brazil over the next two years, so it maintains a service center in São Paulo, made possible by the partnership with the EGA Group.
