GEODIS has signed an agreement to acquire GANDON Transports, a leading player in the transport of temperature-controlled pharmaceutical products.

Already very active in the healthcare market, GEODIS will now be able to expand its capabilities and pursue its development in this market segment.

"This acquisition will consolidate GEODIS' status as a key player in the healthcare market. From inventory planning to temperature-controlled storage and transport to the final recipient, we want to offer our customers a complete and reliable solution throughout the supply chain," explains Marie-Christine Lombard, Chief Executive Officer of GEODIS.

With its recognised expertise in the transport of pharmaceutical products at controlled temperatures (2-8°C and 15-25°C), and benefitting from a portfolio of customers, GANDON Transports has an extensive network that will strengthen the capacity of GEODIS to distribute to pharmacies, hospitals and wholesalers throughout France.
