New European warehouse for pharma firm

Oss, Netherlands: Pharmaceutical logistics company Movianto has opened a new European logistics centre at Oss near Nijmegen in the Netherlands, which it claims is the largest site for the storage of deep frozen pharmaceutical products in Europe.

The warehouse has 22,000 temperature controlled pallet spaces and includes an area with 50 deep frozen pallet locations for specialty pharmaceutical products.

A dedicated area within the warehouse has a capacity for 2,220 cold pallet locations as well as 350 frozen pallets which can be used for storing blood plasma products, for example, and can be extended to house a further 750 pallets, if required.

“May will see the start of operations as the transfer from the former to the new warehouse is completed,” said Patrick Esselaar, managing director of Movianto Nederland and Movianto Belgium.

Last autumn the UK Department of Health renewed its long-term contract for childhood vaccines with Movianto UK.  It insisted that an essential part of this service was the operation of a fully validated cold chain supply chain.
