Kuehne + Nagel wins contract with Organon Ireland

Kuehne + Nagel Ireland has recently been awarded a contract to manage the global logistics requirements for Organon Ireland, a leading world manufacturer and marketer in the health care industry. The agreement includes road, sea and air ambient/cool chain logistics services.

Organon’s vision, to continuously develop and sustain its position as one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in each of its core therapeutic fields, is driven by a combination of independent growth and business partnerships. The company has been building on its success with a growth strategy which included forming a partnership with a logistics service provider which has global coverage and the ability to offer a one-stop-shop solution through a quality and value-add focused relationship.

Kuehne + Nagel was chosen due to the sustainable benefits it offers, including full visibility for all shipments globally, efficient transport solutions with many additional service options, combined with a partnership approach focused on delivering a value-add service in a structured and sustainable manner.

Under the scope of the contract Kuehne + Nagel will manage the inbound transportation by road, sea and air to the Organon facility in Swords and outbound transportation by road, sea and air including temperature controlled/cold chain services to Organon’s global customer base.

Organon discovers, develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of high quality original prescription medicines including products in the fields of gynecology, mental health, anesthesia, and fertility – products that contribute to the health of people and their quality of life.

In Ireland, Organon has located one of its two global manufacturing sites on a 31 acre site near Swords Village, Co Dublin, employing approximately 600 people. The site uses the latest manufacturing technology and processes to make a range of products which are packaged for over 50 countries worldwide.

Gerry Coughlan, Logistics Director for Organon Ireland, comments “In order to successfully compete in a global environment it is important for us to work in a partnership with suppliers who can deliver a value-add service. This new collaboration with Kuehne + Nagel will allow us to further enhance our already high level of service to our customers.”

Marcus Bennett, Managing Director of Kuehne + Nagel Ireland, adds “Working with and developing a business partnership with Organon has been a pleasure for our team, as both organisations have a similar vision towards our respective customer bases, in that we both strive to deliver quality and value-add service offerings.“
