RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC: August 21, 2018. Marken, the UPS pharma supply chain company, has been approved by Brazil’s Health Regulatory Agency ANVISA to ship biological samples from Sao Paulo’s Viracopos airport to the US.

Marken says it can now leverage the UPS network to offer Brazil-based clinical investigators a single provider for end-to-end management and visibility of all shipments.

UPS MexicoThe new hybrid service extends latest pick-up times for 21 Brazilian cities by up to five hours and avoids relying on commercial airlines that can offload biologic cargo “from time to time,” says the company.

“Brazil becomes the latest country from which we can offer a hybrid transport option to the United States,” said Marken CEO Wes Wheeler. “The new option, which allows use of a second Sao Paulo – based airport at Viracopos provides maximum flexibility for our clients.”

UPS country manager for Brazil Nadir Moreno added: "[It] is a key market for industries such as healthcare, high-tech and industrial manufacturing. UPS’s capabilities help customers in these sectors create more efficient supply chains that generate further growth for their businesses.”

Wheeler said his company would continue to develop hybrid service options via UPS for other cities.  A year ago the company opened a similar hybrid service from Mexico City and has now deployed members of its Mexico operations team to assist with the new service from Brazil.
