Melbourne, Australia — 29/04/2013

bioCSL has been selected by New South Wales Health (NSW Health) and the Western Australian Department of Health (WA DoH) to provide storage and distribution services for government funded vaccine programs. The contracts, awarded after separate tender processes, have a combined value of $6.8 million.

Under a three year agreement with WA DoH, bioCSL’s contract logistics business will manage the storage and distribution of over one million vaccines per year, distributing to 528 metropolitan and 297 regional immunisation service providers.

bioCSL’s appointment of a two year contract with NSW Health includes approximately 50,000 deliveries of vaccines each year to over 5,000 private and public immunisation service providers.

These vaccines encompass those covered under the National Immunisation Program (NIP) and additional vaccines for outbreaks and public health response measures.

Operating since 1992, bioCSL has national warehouses and offices spanning five states and provides third party logistics services to both government and commercial enterprises.

bioCSL’s Vice President of Operations, Stephen Marlow, says the Company is committed to providing logistics services for this important component of health service delivery.
