“As one of the leading Central Laboratory companies in the world, we not only operate in mature markets like Europe and North America, but more and more in challenging regions like Asia and Latin America”, said Lewis Cameron, Clearstone CEO. “Because of cost controls and increasing regulatory challenges, the need to find unique solutions for our customers has never been more important. We are therefore very pleased to be working closely with TNT to open more efficient traffic lanes for our time-sensitive shipments, and to develop new processes and technologies that enable Clearstone to meet the changing needs of our clients”.
TNT has developed innovative solutions in such areas as temperature controlled packaging that has benefited the entire Clinical Trial logistics supply chain", said Cathy O'Brien, TNT Global Sector Manager of Clinical Research and Pharma. "TNT's flexibility to provide several service layers at transparent pricing levels sets us apart from both the integrators and premium providers, and this helps Clearstone to provide more transparent and cost effective solutions to their customers”.
“Clearstone faces a variety of complex demands as we move thousands of biological samples and kit supplies every day. And with each new clinical trial around the world, we face challenges requiring dedicated logistical solutions and real-time support”, said Gerit Offenhauser, Clearstone’s VP of Global Logistics Operations. “TNT offers the expertise and flexibility we require, supported by the cost efficiencies of a global network. In this regard, the two companies are similar in their goal of providing exceptional service and value to their customers. Working with a trusted provider who not only understands the markets in which Clearstone operates, but also our business strategy and customer requirements, makes TNT the partner of choice for many regions around the world”.
