Just because it hasn't been done, doesn't mean it can't be done.

Individual-import-license based drug supply in Hungary.


How we did it.

Just a few months after receiving its Wholesaler Distribution License, Komtur Pharmaceuticals Hungary received an urgent request from a hospital in Budapest. Could we urgently source a medicine to treat an 18-month old SMA infant?

On inquiring, we found that the drug was not registered anywhere in Europe. However, we put out the word through our unrivalled global network and managed to track down a supply. The only problem? It was on another continent.

Working under tough time pressure, we fast-tracked the contract between Hospital and Komtur Pharmaceuticals Hungary, and quickly managed to secure an individual import license from the local authority. The treatment was delivered in time, as promised.

This is what our customers have come to rely on – seamless professional collaboration – coordinated by Komtur Pharmaceuticals Hungary to ensure the transportation companies, Customs Clearance Agency and warehouse worked smoothly together to deliver the medicine to the hospital exactly when it’s needed.

It’s complex, it’s fraught with pitfalls and red tape, and it’s just the kind of project where you can rely on Komtur not to let you down. And it’s just one of the many drug supplies of this kind that Komtur Pharmaceuticals Hungary has brought to a satisfying conclusion.
