Marken Delivers New Hybrid Service

Marken has announced the large number of transportation lanes where the UPS airline and ground operations can be used in a new ´hybrid´ service offering, the company said.

The new service is supplemental to their existing specialty operations and will expand Marken´s footprint in the global clinical trials industry.

Over 10% of Marken´s shipments are now travelling with the UPS airline, primarily in Europe and the Americas. Marken can now offer ´hybrid´ shipment services from: Mexico to all US cities, the United Kingdom to most European cities, the United Kingdom to the US, and from the US to most Latin American cities. Additional services from Asia to US destinations and from EU cities to Belgium and Ireland are also planned.

Marken´s new hybrid service enables the booking of shipments in their own proprietary Maestro operating system, managing them from origin to destination while using the UPS network in a seamlessly effective manner. The service provides more flight options and integrated tracking to and from major airports. At the same time, Marken can draw on UPS experience with temperature sensitive transportation which, when combined with Marken´s experience with pharmaceuticals and clinical trials, forms a powerful combination. A new video which explains the three levels of service can be found on the company´s website: www.marken.com.

Marken is a wholly owned subsidiary of UPS. Marken is the only patient-centric supply chain organization 100% dedicated to the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries.
