CEVA adds new Dublin temp control facility

CEVA Logistics has added a new 15,000 sq ft temperature control facility at its airport industrial park warehouse.
The new building has been constructed as an insulated building-within-a-building on the city’s airport industrial park and will allow the forwarder to "better serve customers with medical products requiring to be kept within a constant temperature range of 15-25 degrees Celsius".
CEVA managing director Ireland Gary O’Connor said: "Temperature controlled logistics are an increasingly important part of the Irish export market as life sciences manufacturing continues to grow in the country.
"This new addition to our service offering will enable us to store up to 2,100 pallets of medical products within the 15-25 degree temperature range and cater for growing numbers of customer enquiries where temperature-controlled storage is an essential part of their business."
The new Dublin unit also features state-of-the-art air conditioning, heating and cooling technology complete with a Sintra system which provides exceptional levels of clean air by using perforated ducts to diffuse the air within the facility.
Having specialist clean room facilities, CEVA can also offer customers additional value-added services including re-kitting and reassembling in a controlled environment.
The facility enables CEVA to provide customers with a 24/7 service for any goods moving through the unit as it is now fully authorized under the HPRA (Health Products Regulatory Authority) Wholesalers Distribution Authorization scheme.
In order to receive an authorisation to wholesale medicinal products, a potential authorisation/licence holder must show compliance with the principle of Good Distribution Practice (GDP).

The next stage of the facility’s development, which now caters to multiple healthcare customers, will be the introduction of on-site pharmacists, which will commence by the end of 2017.
