EMERY WORLDWIDE NAMED PRIMARY CARRIER FOR ROCHE PHARMACEUTICAL EUROPEAN RESEARCH PROGRAM

 PALO ALTO, Calif., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Emery Worldwide has been selected by Roche, the leading Swiss multinational manufacturer of pharmaceutical and health care products, as primary carrier for a European medical products test program running over the next two years.
 The contract, which Emery won in collaboration with its long-time Basle, Switzerland agent/partner, Crowe Air Cargo, calls for Emery to provide daily transportation of highly perishable medical test materials, often carried in temperature-controlled dry ice packs, moving to hospitals all over Europe from a specialized medical analysis center in Copenhagen, Denmark.
 Emery also will provide expedited service through its intra-European express system for test samples and results being sent from the various clinics participating in the research program to the Roche pharmaceutical division research center in Copenhagen, with next-morning delivery by 8 a.m. The program involves about 15 European origination points with Copenhagen as the final destination. Emery also is being called upon to carry test result reports to a research center in the United States.
 According to Jules J. Schnyder, vice president-Europe for Emery, the company won the contract because of its consistent high levels of service, its extensive European coverage capability and its specialty marketing and operations program designed specifically for companies involved in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical and health care products.
 Emery introduced its specialty marketing program for pharmaceutical customers in the United States in March 1992. That program is now being extended and developed in Europe given the fact that 40 percent of the worldwide pharmaceutical market originates in Europe.
 "In an industry faced with increasingly stringent regulations governing the shipment of their products, companies call for accuracy, security and accountability in their supply and delivery systems," noted Schnyder. "Emery understands these needs and provides a competitive, time-definite service with dedicated programs and control systems ranging from constant personal surveillance to monitoring through our EMCON tracking and tracing systems from pickup to delivery."
 Emery's special services for pharmaceutical customers also include refrigeration and temperature maintenance capabilities, which are required by sensitive pharmaceuticals such as serums and vaccines that must be shipped under constant temperature control to maintain product quality and integrity.
 The Roche Group, founded in 1896, is a worldwide pharmaceutical company manufacturing medicines and health care products, with operations in over 100 countries and 55,000 employees.
 Emery Worldwide is a $1.1 billion air freight company with 276 terminal and service locations in North America and 88 countries. Emery provides professional transportation services to support the expedited traffic and logistics needs of retailing, manufacturing and industrial customers. The Emery network accepts any size commercial parcel, package or heavy freight shipment.
