Gateway to Eastern and SouthEast Europe

Vienna is ideally located to serve large parts of Eastern Europe and the whole of Southeast Europe.

It is the most Southeastern-located intercontinental gateway for Western Europe. 15 country borders can be crossed within a 1-day drive and 23 within a 1.5-days drive. Vienna Airport as a Pharma hub has an excellent flight-connection network to the Near and Middle East, Asia and North America. 

For companies that ship temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals from/to Eastern and Southeast Europe, VPHC helps to reduce transit times by at least one day and reduce temperature fluctuations due to its unique location and intercontinental connections.

One end-to-end responsible handling partner

VPHC takes full end-to-end responsibility for loading, handling and fulfilment activities.

VIE airport is the only airport in Southeast Europe offering full end-to end pharma services from a single source

For companies that ship temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals from/to Eastern and Southeast Europe, VPHC reduces temperature fluctuations, delays and costs for corrective actions by having one entity responsible for all pharma services.

Pharma dedicated, high-end services

VPHC offers high-end pharma services delivered by experienced staff, running certified processes in a brand new facility that is ideally situated at the airport.

The pharma logistics are directly connected to land and air facilities, including very short tarmac distances to all aircraft positions. The dedicated pharma staff is trained for all relevant training modules such as GDP awareness, time and temperature-sensitive shipments, special cool containers etc.

By reviewing the market continuously and listening to customers, we meet customers’ requirements and offer the latest developments in pharma logistics such as BUP services.
