3PL provider’s new division brings transformative data analytics, innovative logistics technology and continuing education benefits to life sciences supply chains
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Nov. 2, 2022 – Kenco Group, one of North America’s leading third-party logistics (3PL) providers, has officially launched a Life Sciences Division, positioning the company as a major supply chain logistics player for the healthcare sector. This new division further expands Kenco’s current offerings, which include distribution, transportation, material handling and supply chain solutions.
Kenco’s Life Sciences Division will continue to serve Medical Device, Eyecare and Pharmaceutical manufacturers to increase visibility and efficiency in their supply chains for an improved patient experience.
Tim McClatchy, head of life sciences, will lead the new division as it brings supply chain transformation to a sector that has traditionally been slow to change.
“We want to provide the expertise for life sciences companies that are currently managing their own supply chain but have outgrown their internal resources,” said McClatchy. “The world is rapidly changing, with no sign of returning to pre-COVID practices, and that’s why Kenco is expanding to now include specific solutions for life sciences companies that also want to grow their business and meet today’s ever evolving supply chain needs.”
Life sciences customers will benefit from Kenco’s world class data analytics solutions.
“Supply chains are becoming increasingly complex, with new variables like changing customer behaviors, new business models and new competitors popping up in the logistics landscape every day,” said Michelle Kunde, GVP of Operations for life sciences clients. “Our advanced data analytics for supply chains help Kenco and its customers make better, more informed decisions and gain a competitive advantage in their crowded markets.”
Customers in the life sciences sector will also benefit from access to Kenco’s industry leading Innovation Lab, a facility that explores the newest and best tools in logistics and that has taken many to full implementation.
To further grow its expertise in the life sciences space, Kenco is investing in an internal continuing education program, called Life Science Certification. This program will regularly train employees and keep them informed about the latest trends and regulations in the sector, helping them serve life sciences customers as both a logistics provider and in a consultative role.
While this is the official launch of the Life Sciences Division, Kenco has already worked successfully with multiple customers in the life sciences space, providing proven cost savings and other benefits for over two decades.
