DHL opens new pharma facility in Dublin

DHL Supply Chain has opened a new pharmaceutical grade facility in Ireland, located at Horizon Logistics Park by Dublin Airport.
The secure facility, fully approved by the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA), will provide pharma companies manufacturing in Ireland fully compliant temperature controlled end-to-end supply chain management.
DHL said that plans are in place to extend the service across the temperature regimes and provide value-added repack and postponement services. The new DHL logistics center is expected to create up to 50 jobs over the coming months.
With 3,700 sq m of warehousing space, the new facility is segregated into different temperature regimes and offers a range of storage environments including: ambient (15 – 25 degrees); chill (2-8 degrees); and a blast & holding freezer capable of temperatures of -20 degrees.
Located close to European markets, nine out of ten of the top global pharmaceutical companies and nine out of the top ten biopharmaceutical companies have already chosen Ireland as their manufacturing base.
Ciaran Foley, managing director Ireland  of DHL Supply Chain, said: “Our investment in Horizon also gives us the opportunity to provide supply chain services which are fully compliant and managed within strict regulatory controls from start to finish. This is the cornerstone of DHL’s offering.”
In April this year, DHL Global Forwardingreceived Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV) certification for its DHL Air Thermonet airfreight station in Dublin.
