Sofrigam Partner with ModusLink for Warehousing, Fulfilment and Transportation Services

Sofrigam have completed an agreement with ModusLink Global Solutions™ Inc. (MLINK) to provide key warehousing, fulfilment and transportation services for Sofrigam’s world-class pharmaceutical cold chain packaging products.

This new venture means Sofrigam’s insulated boxes will be in a total of 30 warehouses and fulfilment sites in 15 countries. Sofrigam can now locate their refrigerant packaging closer to key customer operation and manage more frequent inventory call offs in line with customer demand. Refrigerant containers and packaging materials are manufactured and tested to ISO quality standards in Sofrigam’s facilities in Europe and North America.

Christopher Day, vice president, North America, Sofrigam said “In our industry, value is added through sophisticated design and manufacturing. Global distribution is a must, but it doesn’t make economic sense for us to do it ourselves. This partnership will give us flexibility to position inventory to best serve our customers throughout the world and will quickly enable the global expansion of our business as the market for temperature-sensitive shipping materials continues to grow.”

“Sofrigam needed a highly reliable supply chain provider to manage complex international distribution and logistics for their pharmaceutical customers,” said Thomas Nightingale, president, sales and marketing, ModusLink. “Our worldwide operations network is unified with a strong systems infrastructure and Lean Sigma-based operations that ensure the consistency and efficiency of our distribution services and is a perfect match for Sofrigam and other clients looking to expand their business globally.”

Through its network of carriers, ModusLink delivers to 140 countries from 30 solution centers worldwide, all connected by a single technology infrastructure.

“In our industry, value is added through sophisticated design and manufacturing. Global distribution is a must, but it doesn’t make economic sense for us to do it ourselves” said Christopher Day.
