The new Pharma trucks are positioned in Bordeaux, Mulhouse, Lyon and Strasbourg and will initially offer a weekly schedule departing every Friday evening to WFS’ €10 million Pharma Centre at Paris CDG. The trucks are capable of transporting 23 Euro pallets and offer a 2-8°C temperature environment. Services ex Lyon also provide a 15-25°C temperature option, a solution which can be expanded to the rest of France if needed.
Laurent Bernard, WFS’ VP Cargo France, commented: “WFS has launched these services to support the development of our airline customers’ growing pharmaceutical volumes in these provinces. Having already made a significant investment in a world class Pharma facility in Paris, these new vehicles extend our temperature-controlled handling services into more regions of France and will help our customers gain a bigger share of the Pharma markets in these areas by enhancing the integrity and visibility of cold chains.”
