New Delhi, Nov 12 (UNI) Global express and logistics provider DHL has introduced global integrated end-to-end temperature controlled transportation for the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry in India.

The solution, LifeConEx, will provide door-to-door transportation of temperature sensitive material in the life sciences industry by integrating the service of an airline, ground handler and a forwarder, delivering new levels of supply chain excellence, the company said.

LifeConEx is a partnership between DHL Global Forwarding and Lufthansa Cargo that was established in 2005.

''LifeConEx is used by some of the leading pharmaceutical companies globally. It will now be offered to companies in India as we have got a localised offering to meet Indian conditions,'' DHL Global Forwarding CEO Christoph Remund said.

''Our partnership with Lufthansa Cargo enables us to leverage their network and ensure to maintain the temperature needs of the product even while it is in air or in transit,'' he added.

India exports drugs to over 65 countries around the world.

Studies indicate that a quarter of all temperature-sensitive vital pharmaceutical drugs that are transported by air, fail to give desired results.
