Key services:

International transportation

We provide all life sciences logistics services between Turkey and other countries in the health sector under GDP standards. Types of service contents differ according to requirements. We specialise in perishable shipments, end-to-end logistics through temperature-controlled vehicles on road freight, and envirotainers on airfreight.

Domestic transportation

We provide all life sciences logistics services within Turkey and value-added services in the health sector under GDP standards. All deliveries are conducted in temperatures of +2+8C / +15+25C / -20C / -80C, and measured and reported by calibrated data loggers.

Clinical trial logistics

We provide fully integrated, GDP-compliant, temperature-controlled collection and distribution solutions for temperature-sensitive biological samples and investigational drugs. Whether to or from investigator sites or remote locations, we always ensure on-time collection and delivery at the required temperature and in good condition within Turkey and worldwide.

Medical device delivery

We can deliver your medical devices to any address in Turkey and worldwide within the consultancy of global shipment regulatory standards.

Time- and temperature-sensitive drug shipments

We provide a range of GDP-qualified thermo-regulated packaging, both active and passive, which ensures that temperature-sensitive drug products remain within proper temperature ranges at all times. We cover the whole of
Turkey and ensure smooth transportation and on-time delivery to the right person within 24 hours to any destinations in Turkey.

Biological sample shipments

We provide accredited packaging for exempt human specimens such as blood, tissue, urine samples, plasma or cord blood, and carry them in different temperature ranges with liquid nitrogen, dry ice shippers or within insulated packaging with gel packs. We welcome any needs on biological sample shipments that expect a solution.

Direct-to-patient service

In order to make the life easier for patients and their families we also provide direct-to-patient (DtP) delivery services for clinical trials. DtP service is a great tool to increase patient recruitment and keep the patient retention at high levels. We have a wide distribution network covering all parts of Turkey, even the most remote locations. And together with our solution, partnerships on home trial support services, infusion, collecting blood or urine samples to/from patients become applicable, with fully qualified nurses making home visits.

Value-added services:

We have an integrated customs brokerage advisory service with a deep regulatory knowledge and experience of investigational medication, clinical trial equipment and the finished pharma products. Our customs brokerage and regulatory advisory service includes:

  • regulatory and customs compliance assistance
  • online import/export licence application process and tracking

Temperature-controlled storage

All storage services are maintained at a clinical research depot approved by the Ministry of Health in Turkey. We keep all life science products in the necessary temperatures according to GxP (good manufacturing, storage and distribution practices) guidelines in customised depots of +15+25C / +2+8C/ -18C for temperature-sensitive drugs.

On board courier, hand-delivery service

We are aware that our customers consign us the most precious shipments that they have and we are committed to carrying them with the greatest care from the origin until we deliver to the hands of the recipient. Our high-touch operations team manages all the details, from flight bookings to entry requirements and customs regulations, in any location in the world to and from Turkey. Our OBC team is available to you 24/7 via telephone or e-mail, allowing you to be aware of each step of your shipment from collection to final delivery.
