Bay Area Research Logistics (BARL) is a global, clinical trial logistics organization focused on assisting the global healthcare industry to successfully advance new medications and treatments. In recent days, BARL has been awarded an initiatory three-year contract to administer all of the Canadian clinical trial storage and distribution for GlaxoSmithKline Inc. (GSK)

The new contract will include the storing and distributing of pharmaceuticals and vaccines for approximately 25 research trials on a continual basis. This news has direct impact on BARL’s home base in Hamilton because the contract has permitted BARL to grow its facilities by about 30 per cent and add more than two full-time employee equivalents to its current staff inventory.

Congratulations to BARL for this great accomplishment!
