Providing the right solution

Some products only need to be transported in compliance with the ISO 9001 quality standard to remain safe and usable for patients and customers, for these products we have designed the Kuehne+Nagel base service.

Healthcare products requiring GxP compliance are best shipped with our Healthcare Logistics core service which is certified by our HealthChain quality label which guarantees the compliance and safety measures necessary to maintain product integrity.
