Our Story

Parazelsus India is a Supply Chain Solutions provider, providing services like cold chain & ambient logistics, besides warehousing to pharmaceutical, consumer healthcare, and medical devices sectors. The company, having its head office in Mumbai, operates a network across India with 12 logistic nodes covering more than 243 cities, 450 transport routes, and 5,000 distributors. The team at Parazelsus includes industry veterans, finance & marketing experts who are committed to generating value in the pharmaceutical & consumer healthcare sector.


The name Parazelsus is derived from Swiss doctor & alchemist Philippus Theophrastus Aureolus Bombastus von Hohenheim (1493-1541), who took the name Paracelsus later in life. He referred to Celsus, the Roman Encyclopedist for Medicine, but meant to move medicine beyond his times. Paracelsus introduced the treatment of illnesses with chemical substances during the Renaissance period. Many early advances in modern medicine are based on the research and work performed by Paracelsus.
