Cell and gene therapy

Advanced therapy solutions

Our full-service logistics and storage solutions help you seamlessly deliver innovation.

Cell and gene therapies (CGTs) represent the leading edge of biomedical research. Autologous and allogeneic cell, gene, and tissue therapies are transforming healthcare and are demonstrating dramatic results. Approvals of autologous CAR-T therapies such as Kymriah, Tecartus, and Yescarta and allogeneic treatments including Rethymic and Alofisel reinforce the exceptional advancements in this space.

CGT sponsors must carefully consider every aspect of their development and manufacturing journey as early as possible to ensure their discovery can be approved and commercialized with minimal delay. The logistics — of development, clinical trials, and the therapy’s commercial stage — are a key part of this planning. However, CGT therapies come with unique logistic requirements that add complexity and risk to their supply chains. Understanding the end-to-end supply chain of CGT as early as possible is critical to ensuring risks can be mitigated before they cause delays in getting a treatment to patients.

World Courier designs tailored logistics solutions to fit your CGT supply chain requirements.
