Hellmann Healthcare Logistics has expanded its specialist division into South Africa and appointed an inhouse pharmacist in order to store and distribute pharmaceuticals to comply with local regulations. Abiding by the legal requirement that a pharmacist must be present on site, HHL appointed Freda van Loggerenberg as General Manager of Healthcare Logistics in January 2010.

Hellmann said van Loggerenberg is in discussions with pharmaceutical, veterinary and medical devices companies, on a local and multinational scale as the company works to establish the HHL brand in South Africa. The growing activities in South Africa will soon lead to a fully operational healthcare hub which will provide regulatory-compliant end-toend supply chain solutions to businesses in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device sectors, said the company.
