Johnson & Johnson MedTech KSA (J&J MedTech KSA) has signed an agreement with Tamer Logistics to become its third-party logistics provider in Saudi Arabia.
The agreement comes as part of J&J MedTech KSA’s strategic plan of transforming its go-to-market model which involves establishing direct operations in the kingdom within 2024.
With J&J MedTech KSA set to enhance the provision of cutting-edge medical solutions to its customers, the company has long-term goals that are in line with Saudi Arabia’s 2030 vision of fulfilling healthcare priorities that include the integration of technology-driven solutions and consistent delivery of care to its ever-growing population.
J&J MedTech KSA sought the support of a local 3PL provider to handle the transport & warehousing of its MedTech product portfolio in the Kingdom. Through this first step of J&J’s MedTech KSA’s transformation in Saudi Arabia, healthcare entities will be able to access improved end-to-end services of the company’s innovative devices and technologies in the areas of surgery, orthopedics, neurovascular, cardiovascular and specialty solutions designed to provide treatment for a range of medical conditions.
“As the Saudi healthcare market evolves at a rapid rate, we have been agile in our response of initiating foundational initiatives to better serve our customers with premium and comprehensive end-to-end services. As we embark on our transformational journey in the kingdom, J&J MedTech MEA is committed to meeting the demand for consistent and top-tier medical technologies in Saudi Arabia.”
Mr. Trad Al Khelaiwi, General Manager of J&J MedTech KSA commented that “As we fulfill our mission of reaching more patients in Saudi Arabia and transforming the future of medical intervention, J&J MedTech KSA has plans to expand direct operations and solidify our position as a strategic partner focused on reimagining healthcare and addressing unmet needs in the kingdom.”
Mr. Al Khelaiwi added that “Guided by Saudi Arabia’s 2030 vision, our sustained journey of growth and investment are aligned with the health sector’s transformation program where we aspire to create job opportunities for Saudi Nationals over the next 12 months and contribute to improved patient outcomes through our diverse expertise.”
