GEODIS has just signed an expanded contract with Biosystems S.A. – a company focused on the Pharma and Healthcare industry – to send temperature-controlled reagents and lab instruments to over 35 countries across the world. The two companies have been cooperating for over 10 years, and this new contract incorporates all new destinations across the globe.
Biosystems S.A. exports to regions where the transport of goods can be challenging, such as Armenia, Afghanistan and a variety of African locations. GEODIS uses its global network to perform customs activities while organizing direct bills of lading according to the company’s requirements. “We provide our services to Biosystem SA through close cooperation between sales, operations and customs,” says GEODIS’ Managing Director for Freight Forwarding in Spain, Vincent Bertonnaud. “This creates one integrated solution with top service at the best possible rate and simplified monthly invoicing.”
“We trust GEODIS’ professionalism,” says Sales Administration Manager for Biosystems, Anna Carné. “Their Sales and Operations teams operate at a very high level to provide quality products and services at reasonable rates. They also go above and beyond in terms of personal care in the management of our daily shipments. They are always willing to help in times of urgency with quick assistance and close customer attention.”
GEODIS and Biosystems S.A. have been building up a trusted relationship for years. GEODIS conducts regular face-to-face meetings with this important customer in order to ensure a true collaboration that relies on flexibility and personal attention to every shipment, with a dedicated structure in place for sometimes daily pick-ups to reduce Biosystems S.A.’s warehousing costs.
