Since the first participation in CPhI Korea in 2016, Bolloré Logistics Korea has continued its efforts to provide qualified freight services to its Healthcare customers and has been investing to offer certified warehouse storage and qualified distribution service.

With a mission to promote Bolloré Logistics’ expertise in healthcare, the Korea team - Ms. Yoon-Ju CHO, Managing Director, Mr. Joseph KANG, Head of Operations, Mr. BC OUM, Head of General Sales, Mr. James NAMGOONG, Healthcare Senior Business Development Manager (BDM), along with related colleagues, actively collaborated during the event to promote its presence in global pharmaceutical shipping process.
