UPS Meets Pharmaceutical Company Boiron's Needs With A Perfect Solution
Source: United Parcel Service of America
Founded in 1932 in Lyon, France, Boiron Group is an international company that manufactures and distributes homeopathic medicine to retailers, physicians, brokers and distributors. As sales climbed in the U.S., Boiron soon realized it had to bridge the gap between its manufacturing in France and its distribution in the United States. Specifically, it needed a warehousing solution that would be compliant with applicable U.S. regulations. In 2000, UPS acquired Livingston Inc. and expanded services for Boiron and other healthcare companies to include receiving, warehousing, order selection, distribution and a range of special services. Special services for Boiron included a variety of packaging projects, such as in-store displays for retailers and configuring special pallets for customer shipments.
