Cryoport Inc.—a temperature-controlled supply chain solution provider for the life sciences industry that recently grew its network with the acquisition1 of Bluebird Express, LLC, a provider of time-sensitive domestic and international transportation services—and Nippon Express Holdings, Inc., global logistics company, are forming a strategic partnership2 that is expected to provide temperature-controlled supply chain services for the life sciences industry on a global basis.

The parties will partner up in an effort to design and implement supply chain solutions that support each other's business efforts. This relationship combines Nippon Express' logistics experience, with Cryoport Systems' fully integrated system, processes, and equipment including its shipping packages, data solutions, biostorage and bioservices, and a know-how of providing end-to-end cell and gene therapy support services, from upstream biomaterial collection to final delivery for dosing.

"This partnership builds on our growing presence globally and bolsters our ability to service customers by benefiting from Nippon Express' industry-leading global network,” says Jerrell Shelton, CEO of Cryoport. “As an organization, Cryoport is committed to enhancing its logistics solutions and adding new capabilities to support the life sciences. Today's collaboration is the latest in a series of strategic partnerships to build greater value for our clients as we fulfill this mission."
