McKesson Logistics, one of Canada's leading healthcare logistics providers
changes its name to Accuristix

Signaling the next phase of client-focused innovation

OAKVILLE, ON, March 1 /CNW/ - Accuristix, formerly McKesson Logistics Solutions (MLS), is a leading third-party logistics supplier focused exclusively on providing integrated supply chain services to a broad range of healthcare manufacturers.

The catalyst for the name change was Associated Logistics Solutions' (ALS) acquisition of 100% of the partnership interests in the company in October, 2009. The shift in ownership signals an acceleration of the company's client-centric evolution, maintaining the high quality of client care for which it is known.

The name change will not result in any leadership, structural or staffing changes. Accuristix will continue to leverage their unique technology platform, innovation and differentiating visibility tools, striving for continuous improvement to further benefit their clients. For Accuristix, this is a time of client-focused transformation and renewed commitment to providing the most reliable and innovative logistics services in the marketplace.

"Our commitment to our clients has never been stronger," commented Cameron Joyce, President of Accuristix. "Our mission is to assist our clients in enhancing their cost effectiveness, execution accuracy and quality control in servicing their customers. Ultimately, our goal is to continue to ensure that our clients are able to concentrate on their core competencies, while we focus on what we do best: Advancing Healthcare Logistics," he added.
