Tranzone Logistics plans to be hub for Gulf States and African distribution

Tranzone Logistics fzco, the subsidiary of Banaja Holdings, has announced that is the first and only specialized company in Jebel Ali Free Zone, U.A.E. to provide storage and handling services of pharmaceuticals and related healthcare products. Storage and handling services are provided in a high-security environment for all storage areas inside the warehouses. Warehouse capacity includes regulated cold-chain services, managed in accordance with Good Distribution Practices and Good Storage Practices (GDP and GSP).

The main objective of these Tranzone warehouses, says the company, is to attract international pharmaceutical companies to establish regional distribution centers in Jebel Ali, enabling them to supply their clients in the Gulf States and Africa. These Tranzone facilities are an extension of the strong ties Banaja Holdings/Tranzone has in Saudi Arabia that go back more than 60 years of working in the field of medicine storage and distribution for international manufacturers such as GSK, Pfizer, Sanofi-Aventis and Roche.
