How does it work?

Proper treatment

Transporting medical and pharmaceutical products requires specific treatment. Logging the temperature, producing proof of delivery and proactively informing our customers is our standard practice. We can deliver your shipment to both private and business recipients.

Constant focus

The government has stricter requirements and demands transparent, air-conditioned transport. Your customers also have specific needs. These trends require a constant focus on all your logistics challenges. After years of experience, we know how to offer that focus on the healthcare market.

Full service

Pharma & Care offers a full range of services in air-conditioned transport. Whether it’s parcels, pallets, mini-pallets, roll containers or parcel goods. We have the right solution for you.

Different service for each customer


Pharmaceutical wholesalers are the most important link in the healthcare industry, seeing the large volumes they send out every day. That’s why they are given priority: for them, we deliver early in the morning.

Hospitals and healthcare organisations

Whether it’s medicine, medical equipment or medical aids. Our reliable logistics solution is another item you don’t have to worry about. We will deliver your shipment to the right department.


Proper and timely delivery, in and outside the hospital. That involves responsibility. That’s why we ensure the same driver, who is familiar with your opening hours, peak days and holiday periods.

Patient and doctor deliveries

We can deliver your shipment or samples. With the proper care and in consultation with the recipient.
