Logistics solutions for central labs

Improved investigator experience and increased cost efficiency 

Managing a clinical trial involves multiple moving parts, including the transport of patient samples and shipments to support this – kits, reagents and medical devices – across various temperature ranges.

Optimal performance in this critical part of the supply chain means that patients can maintain treatment schedules and potential cost impacts are reduced – contributing to the successful completion of a study.

By connecting your lab to our hybrid transport service with select integrator partners, you can harness World Courier’s strengths to bring performance, reliability and cost-effectiveness to your central lab’s transport needs.

Laboratory Logistics offers an enhanced investigator experience with a premium service on either the first or last mile, or both, at a lower price point than the next flight out solution.
