DHL opens pharma centre at Schiphol

DHL Global Forwarding has opened a logistics centre for life science and healthcare products at Amsterdam-Schiphol airport in the Netherlands.
The Life Science Competence Center is located next to the airport at the business park Schiphol Southeast. It serves as a hub for the transport, transport preparation, temporary storage, and transport follow-up of active and passive temperature-controlled pharmaceutical and medicinal products.
The facility covers 1,000 sq m and took an investment of €1m. 
One area is dedicated to pharmaceutical products that must be stored at constant temperatures between two and eight degrees Celsius, while the second one allocated to a controlled temperature range of between 15 to 25 degrees Celsius.
There is a special temperature-controlled loading area, with a loading dock for both ULD’s and pallets. Actively cooled containers can be charged and dry ice can be replenished.
The center is equipped with temperature and humidity sensors that immediately sound an alarm should conditions fall outside of established parameters.
