Marken Validates Top Position in Global Clinical Sample Shipments

PARIS, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Marken is pleased to share its year-end data which validates that it holds a market-leading position in the shipment of in-bound biological samples to the major central laboratories and to Pharma directly.  In the past 18 months, Marken collected shipments from over 49,000 clinical investigators in 159 countries around the world.  An independent survey* conducted by a major consulting group, confirms that Marken has more than 60% of the specialty courier market in biological samples transportation, and a higher share of the cold chain segment of that same market. Marken also commissioned an in-depth market research study in 2011 with The Avoca Group.  The Avoca Group interviewed over 100 individuals, including current clients, from 74 global pharmaceutical, CRO, laboratory, and sponsor companies who use supply chain services. In the survey, Marken achieved the top score when asked "Who do you consider a leader in clinical trial logistics?"  The qualities attributed to Marken's leading position were cost effectiveness, flexibility, on-time performance and customer service. Marken intends to conduct this survey annually as a means to monitor and improve its client service position.
