Marken has won the pharmaceutical clinical research industry award of Best Life Science Logistics Provider at the 5th Annual BioPharma Asia Industry Awards. The award was announced at a dinner and ceremony held in conjunction with the BioPharma Asia conference in Singapore, drawing an annual attendance of 1,600.
The Annual BioPharma Asia Convention is the most prestigious regional gathering of executives, investors and representatives from pharma, biotech, contract research, contract nanufacturing organizations and central laboratories. The best organizations in the industry are recognized for their contributions to biopharmaceutical development in Asia. Marken competed against top global providers well-known in the industry and this win highlights the fact that Marken’s strategy to solely serve the pharma and clinical research industry is appreciated and recognized by its clients.
Michael Culme-Seymour, Marken vice-president Asia Pacific Region, spoke about the back-to-back win for Marken.
"It is truly an honor to be chosen by the industry to win this award again this year," he said. "Marken’s selection as the best service provider in this category speaks to the level of passion and expertise of our staff. Thank you to our Asia Pacific team members and to all of our Marken teams around the globe for their dedication and experience.
"Each and every day, these teams coordinate and ship sensitive and high-value drugs as well as time and temperature sensitive biological samples around the world on time and within specification, across multiple time zones. We also humbly thank our clients for their vote and, and more importantly, their continued partnership with Marken as the clinical logistics provider of choice.
"This win highlights our ongoing commitment to the bio pharma and life sciences industries. Having just opened a new office in Shanghai this week to join the existing network of facilities and depots, this has been an exciting week for us as we continue our partnership and expansion with clients in this part of the world."
Celebrating 35 years, Marken is the world’s only clinical logistics organization (CLO) solely focused on providing logistic services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device and life sciences industries. Marken has continued its expansive growth plan since winning last year and the organization now includes 580 full time employees. In addition to the recent opening of the Shanghai office, another new office will open in Philadelphia (US) in April.
