Marken has expanded its hybrid clinical logistics service in Latin American – from which an estimated 2,000 daily shipments to the US originate.

The hybrid service, which uses UPS’ network for a portion of shipment routes​, was launched in May 2017.

Marken​ yesterday announced that it will offer similar services from Guadalajara (GDL), Monterey (MTY), and Buenos Aires (EZE) airports to the US. 

Additional cities in Latin American (LATAM) are currently in a test phase and are expected to be available in the future, according to the company.

Adding Guadalajara, Monterey and Buenos Aires to our hybrid service offering is a major advance in our LATAM clinical portfolio,"​ said Wes Wheeler, Marken CEO.

"We are the first to load biological sample shipments onto an integrator flight from Buenos Aires (EZE) using the UPS airline, which then allows us to arrive at any US laboratory early the next morning."

According to the clinical trial logistics provider, there are an estimated 2,000 daily shipments from LATAM into laboratories in the US – of which nearly 50% originate in Mexico and Argentina.
