by MM&D staff

OAKVILLE, Ontario: Roche Canada, the Canadian arm of pharmaceutical manufacturer Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, has chosen the company that will handle the storage and distribution of its products

Accuristix, which was formerly known as McKesson Logistics Solutions, has been awarded what it calls a long term contract. Starting in 2013, the 3PL company will now be responsible for the storage and distribution of Roche Canada’s commercial pharmaceuticals, clinical trial products, samples and promotional literature.

All work will be done from Accuristix’s new healthcare facility, where a dedicated area—including a 1,0000 pallet pharmaceutical cooler—has been designated for Roche Canada’s products.
