Africa’s pharmaceutical industry has grown significantly in recent years, with the opportunity for public-private health partnerships on the rise.
Given the opportunities for healthcare in the region, World Courier is pleased to announce that its first office in Nairobi, Kenya will be opening on the 1st of October 2020. With over twenty years of experience in the African continent and 18,000+ shipments across the territory in 2019, World Courier Kenya will enable better supply chains, extend healthcare solutions, and aspire to be a thought leader for eastern Africa’s healthcare logistics industry.
The Challenges in Africa
Rising temperatures, minimal rainfall, a significant lack of infrastructure (roads, cargo facilities, and internet), unreliable power, and data monitoring – are some of the reasons why healthcare logistics providers find it challenging to conduct clinical trials in Africa.
Although these challenges can be complex, World Courier has the experience and network to mitigate these issues wherever possible. We transport and store time-and temperature-sensitive products — executing processes that mitigate risk while also maximizing the return on R&D developments. Currently, we have four offices and a depot in Johannesburg, South Africa.
