GEODIS announces a project to acquire GANDON Transports to enhance its healthcare offering


GEODIS has signed an agreement to acquire GANDON Transports, a leading player in the transport of temperature-controlled pharmaceutical products. Already very active in the healthcare market, GEODIS will now be able to expand its capabilities and pursue its development in this market segment.

“This acquisition will consolidate GEODIS’ status as a key player in the healthcare market.  From inventory planning to temperature-controlled storage and transport to the final recipient, we want to offer our customers a complete and reliable solution throughout the supply chain,” explains Marie-Christine Lombard, Chief Executive Officer of GEODIS.

With its recognized expertise in the transport of pharmaceutical products at controlled temperatures (2/8°C and 15/25°C), benefiting from a portfolio of loyal customers, GANDON Transports has an extensive network that will strengthen the capacity of GEODIS to distribute to pharmacies, hospitals, and wholesalers throughout France.

“This operation will meet our customers’ growing demand for temperature-controlled transport of the healthcare products.  This new resource will enable us to offer our current and future customers a transport service for heat-sensitive products, anywhere in France,” says Stéphane Cassagne, Executive Vice President of GEODIS’s Distribution & Express Line of Business.

“By joining the GEODIS Group, a world leader in transport and logistics, we will be able to offer greater opportunities to our customers and employees.  At the heart of this alliance are the strong and shared values of customer service and employee satisfaction” says Joël GANDON, President of GANDON Transports.
