About us

Tamro is Sweden’s only independent pharmaceuticals logistics service provider. Every day, we supply more than 1,400 pharmacies throughout Sweden with pharmaceuticals and other medical and healthcare products.

This is Tamro

This is Tamro

Tamro has an important role in the Swedish value chain for well-being. Thousands of people’s health and sometimes even lives are dependent on us delivering pharmaceuticals and other medical and healthcare products on time and in perfect condition to the country’s pharmacies and hospitals. We don’t have any pharmacies of our own, we’re an independent actor. This means that we can work with everyone’s best interests in mind –manufacturers, pharmacies, hospitals, consumers and patients.

About 550 people work at Tamro and the company’s quality and environmental management systems are certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 respectively. The company was founded in 1921 as ADA (Apotekarnes Droghandelsaktiebolag), changing its name to Tamro in 1995 in conjunction with an acquisition. PHOENIX acquired a third of Tamro in 2000 and is the sole owner since 2004.

We work with DTP

We work with DTP

Managing your pharmaceuticals in a cohesive flow via a single logistics partner increases quality, safety and efficiency while reducing costs. This is why Tamro wholeheartedly promotes and supports DTP (Direct-to-Pharmacy), a model that is deeply rooted in Sweden. The market and all concerned have voluntarily worked with the DTP model for decades, even after the 2009 deregulation of the Swedish pharmacy market.

DTP means that the pharmaceutical manufacturer assigns Tamro the task of stocking all of its pharmaceuticals and transporting them to pharmacies. So we’re not a traditional wholesaler, but rather a company working with third-party logistics. Tamro provides logistics services to the pharmaceutical industry and other actors who wish to use our services.
