HEALTHCARE LOGISTICS RE-BRANDS TO MOVIANTO UK Tuesday 2 October 2007 PDF Print September 27th - Healthcare Logistics, part of the Movianto Group, the logistics and distribution business unit of Celesio AG, has today been renamed as Movianto UK. With 30 years experience trading as Healthcare Logistics, the change is part of the overall business strategy of strengthening the market presence of Movianto across all European markets by establishing one strong international brand. Movianto is the UK’s market leader in specialist healthcare logistics and distribution. It combines local market expertise and knowledge with cross-border supply chain efficiency for companies operating in the pharmaceutical and healthcare market. The Movianto Group handles over 400 international customers, including the ten largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. The range of services includes storage, transportation, cool chain logistics and management, as well as customer-specific services, such as re-packaging or re-labeling. Peter Bradford, Managing Director of Movianto UK commented: “The pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors are dominated by international manufacturers operating across international borders. These manufacturers are increasingly seeking likeminded and similarly structured organisations to take on responsibility for managing their logistics and distribution. As part of the Movianto Group, Movianto within the UK is ideally placed to provide this service. The move to a single name and identity communicates the fact to the market that regardless of whether operating in the UK or in mainland Europe, Movianto can provide a consistent level of service, expertise and quality from a single source”. 2/…HEALTHCARE LOGISTICS RE-BRANDS TO MOVIANTO UK Managing in excess of 1 million items each day, Movianto delivers approximately 40% of Britain’s domestic pharmaceutical products.
