Yusen’s solution for AstraZeneca

AZ seeking to optimise flows of temperature controlled products.


AstraZeneca prescription drugs Yusen Logistics


As part of its ongoing relationship with AstraZeneca (AZ), Yusen Logistics (YL) has launched a major airfreight operation to transport prescription drugs from the UK to Australia. 

AZ was seeking to optimise flows of these temperature controlled products and Yusen Logistics was able to offer a robust and cost effective solution. 

The YL solution involves moving the cargo by air from AZ’s UK central warehouse in Macclesfield to Sydney, maintaining a stringent temperature regime throughout the supply chain and with all movements made under high security conditions.

In order to maintain the temperature regime, thermal protection is applied to each individual AZ pallet. Cargo air movements are timed to arrive in Sydney at the coolest time of day. The cargo is stored under strict temperature control during transit, ensuring product integrity at all times.
