Biocair, a global leader in GDP logistics for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and life sciences sectors, is proud to announce its partnership with Aramex Ireland to expand its presence in the Irish market.

With Biocair's focus on providing the most comprehensive time-sensitive and temperature-controlled logistics services available, and Aramex Ireland’s operations and facilities to deliver life science goods, the partnership is poised to grow an established presence in Ireland for the life science market.

Through this partnership, Biocair and Aramex Ireland will offer a fully integrated service, including pick-up and delivery, all managed through the Aramex network. The partnership will provide specialist and bulk solutions for the pharmaceutical, medical and biotechnology sectors, ensuring that life sciences supply chains are controlled and efficient, via a global network of logistics experts.

As Ireland is split between the UK and the EU, there can often be some difficulties in relation to customs, paperwork and regulations. Biocair and Aramex Ireland provide services to help overcome these challenges and have specialists recruited to assist along every step of the supply chain. As a Good Distribution Practice (GDP) compliant logistics specialist, Biocair ensures all shipments meet legal and safe shipping standards and, as laws differ widely, the business provides time-saving assistance with customs tariff codes, classification of dangerous goods and labeling. 

"We are delighted to be working with Aramex to expand our services within the Irish market and offer a unique service that is fully integrated from pickup through delivery.

We have recognized the increasing demand for temperature-controlled logistics within the life science community and have acted accordingly to provide a stronger presence within Ireland.

We are committed to regulatory compliance and managing every step in a shipment's process with care, expertise and precision to prevent delays or issues. As a business we ensure to remain up to date with the latest in GDP compliant cold chain packaging and technology to bring the very best service to our customers.”

- Chris Cooke, Biocair CEO

Both companies hold several key industry-rated accreditations and with seven main depots in the UK and three in Ireland, Biocair and Aramex Ireland are committed to providing flexible, tailored and cost-effective solutions to all their customers.

"We are pleased to announce this new partnership with Biocair. This collaboration is a further testament of our proven track record in offering innovative freight and logistics solutions for life science customers.

We look forward to working with Biocair and supporting them expanding into the Irish market. Through our combined strengths and expertise, we aim to provide our customers and the wider market with a unique service proposition that offers clear value in a high growth area.”

- Frank Kilbride, Aramex Ireland Country Manager

This partnership is a significant step in Biocair’s global growth strategy and demonstrates the company’s commitment to moving science forward by delivering the highest standards of life science logistics to its customers.
