Imported pharmaceuticals for your multifaceted needs

Despite the positive state of the pharmaceutical industry in Germany, occasional supply shortages are unavoidable, for instance medications for special forms of cancer or vaccines. With us as your professional partner, you will always be optimally positioned to offer your customers an extensive range of pharmaceuticals. We import:

  • medicinal products not available in Germany

  • new medicines not yet available on the market in Germany

  • pharmaceuticals for rare diseases in Germany

  • medicines with alternative excipients (with an attestation of therapeutic necessity)

  • pharmaceuticals no longer available on the market in Germany

  • medicines temporarily unavailable in Germany due to supply shortages

Additionally, we offer cooled products, narcotics and standard pharmacy goods, with no minimum order amount required. To help you feel secure during the import process, we carry out a comprehensive review of the following legal aspects before the process begins:

  • Safety

  • Marketability

  • Prescription requirements

  • Legal status of narcotics

  • Availability of medication with an active ingredient of comparable strength within Germany (in which case the product may not be imported)
