World Courier, a provider of specialty logistics services and part of AmerisourceBergen, will open a new investigational drug depot in Moscow, Russia, in August 2016. The new facility will better position World Courier to to provide clinical support services for temperature-controlled products and distribution needs.
The facility is nearly six times larger than the company's current Moscow depot and will add solutions and service capabilities. For example, pharmaceutical manufacturers conducting clinical trials in Moscow will have access to a variety of new services, including local sourcing of comparator drugs and secondary packaging and labeling, which allows for late-stage customization of products.
Staffed by full-time pharmacists, the depot provides logistical solutions for investigational therapies and trial-related materials in temperature-controlled settings. In addition to serving clinical trial logistics needs, the facility is licensed to support commercial 3PL distribution for specialty products and features an expanded storage area, which includes pallet racking in controlled room temperature and the cold chamber.
