The Company currently focuses on four core markets including critical and high-value aviation parts (Aviation), blood, tissue & organs, personalized medicine, and medical devices (Life Sciences), clinical trial supplies, patient samples, investigational drugs, biologics and vaccines (Clinical Trial Management) and other goods that require security or other specialized services (Specialty Logistics). Supported by its network of over 450 employees and over 4,000 worldwide service partners, the Company provides next flight out, next drive out, air charter, on-board courier and priority freight services, among others to service these core markets.
