Swiss Post has provided logistics services in the healthcare sector for some time, and it supports medical service providers with sustainable, integrated and efficient logistics solutions.
On 14 March 2022, Swiss Post acquired the healthcare logistics provider MW Partners Holding SA, which will expand its competencies and the range of services it offers in the healthcare sector.
This acquisition will help Swiss Post expand its geographical coverage for the processing of sterile goods and the related logistics in French-speaking Switzerland.
It is a further step to ensure the company can provide a full range of logistics services for the Swiss healthcare sector over the long term. In doing so, Swiss Post is focusing on its core activity: planning and executing goods and logistics flows in a secure, reliable and efficient manner.
MW Partners Holding SA was founded in 2008 and comprises Stericenter SA, Mediwar AG, Marcel Blanc & Cie SA and Resot.Care SA. Employing 55 staff, MW Partners Holding SA provides services covering the entire logistics and medical value chain for medical practices, hospitals and clinics. This allows hospitals and medical practices to concentrate entirely on their core activity – providing their patients with medical care.
“With MW Partners Holding SA at our side, we can now provide the best possible support to the healthcare sector in Western Switzerland and make it easier to handle all aspects of logistics,” explains Johannes Cramer, a Member of Executive Management and Head of the Logistics Services unit at Swiss Post.
The parties have agreed that the purchase price will remain confidential.
Swiss Post as a logistics provider in the healthcare sector
Swiss Post has provided logistics services in the healthcare sector for some time, and is expanding its activity in this area. For a number of years now, the company has helped ensure that hospitals, medical practices and outpatient clinics are supplied reliably and efficiently with medical consumables. For over eight years, Swiss Post has operated a temperature-controlled logistics center in Villmergen in the canton of Aargau, which is designed specifically to store medical and pharmaceutical products. By acquiring a stake in Steriplus AG in October 2021, Swiss Post had already teamed up with another strong partner in healthcare logistics.
