Allow me to introduce you to our website; my name is Konstantin and I am the Managing Director at COREX.

 A few years after graduating from the Third Moscow Medical Univeristy I joined «Quintiles» department of logistics and customs support, became the head of department after two years and stayed there until 2008. I then worked in for a number of companies running clinical trial logistics, taking part in the creation and development of Local Depots.<br>

I joined COREX in July 2014 as director of operations and logistics. Since then I was able to introduce new performance standards within COREX LogiLinktm which streamlined business processes improved the accountability and quality of staff. Under my direct supervision the company has passed several major audits, more than doubled the amount of current projects, launched its own courier service and customs department.

At this stage of development one of the key strengths of our company is a team sharing the principles of supreme quality, focusing on results and innovation. The company employs many people with a fresh vision, and most importantly, a very warm and friendly atmosphere is created by our team members. Perhaps due to these qualities COREX is one of the fastest growing companies with bright prospects, and working here is a great honor.

The results of our success are clearly visible so contact us to see how we can work for you!

Logistics of Controlled Drugs is a complicated process, which can be impacted by hidden pitfalls and unstructured regulatory landscape (for more information on Russia see our white-paperAvoiding pitfalls in logistics of Controlled and Highly Active Substances in Russia”). The approach to these types of goods differs significantly from that of other pharmaceutical products and is subject to a separate set of regulations. For a depot to be allowed to handle Controlled Substances, a dedicated license and a distinctively equipped storage facility is required.

For the sponsors that are evaluating potential vendors it is paramount to understand that this process requires a very specific skill set. Failure to select a knowledgeable and reliable local partner may lead to significant delays and even failures of clinical trial execution. Both local and central depots lack practical experience in organizing importation and distribution of narcotics, psychotropic goods and highly active substances. In this respect, COREX proudly stands out, having successfully completed a large number of projects that involved both Controlled and Highly Active Substances.

COREX is one of very few local vendors that is fully licensed, has the expertise and is equipped in compliance with all applicable requirements that allows us to handle controlled drugs. We take care of the entire logistics cycle starting from obtaining regulatory approvals, utilizing sealed storage, double-security transportation and finishing with distribution and destruction.
