Hervé’s team will consist of local customer service and operations specialists with extensive knowledge in the transport and logistics of Research/ Drug Development and Temperature Control shipments. The team will provide consultation on stringent regulatory compliance, specialized validated packaging and Dangerous Goods transport, as well as best routings, including solutions for emerging market areas.

In addition to a global footprint, QuickSTAT France is located 2km away from Roissy CDG airport and has developed a diverse regional network that includes airlines, high speed train (TGV), and priority ground options to achieve the fastest transit time, and clinical supply chain integrity.
