After the success of running InterPharmex as a 3rd party logistics company for cold chain products, Tarek and his partners decided to invest in the 3PL market in Egypt with 100% focus on pharmaceutical customers. They established “EPx Logistics” as a business unit under Egyptian Pharmex and started the first dedicated pharmaceutical 3PL company in Egypt with their first warehouse in Obour Industrial Zone, near Cairo. This operation became fully operational by April 2011 and successfully passed all QA, HSE and other audits for all the principals that audited it. By end 2011, several key industry players were utilizing EPx Logistics’ services, including Pfizer, GSK and Sandoz. Since its establishment in 2011, the company continued to build its expertise in Quality Assurance, HSE, Validation, IT and SOPs and also launched new value added services such as overprinting, transportation and clinical trial logistics services.
