Stuttgart, Germany, 2010/03/30 - Movianto, a logistics company specialised in pharmaceutical and healthcare, has expanded the services for DAIICHI SANKYO EUROPE to three additional countries: Austria, Spain and Great Britain.
Furthermore the companies’ existing successful cooperation in France is to be continued. Alongside the storage and distribution of DAIICHI SANKYO’s products, Movianto will also be undertaking diverse specialised services along the supply chain in these countries.
The storage of the pharmaceutical products will take place in the warehouses of Movianto’s subsidiaries from where wholesalers are to be supplied.
