27 / 06 / 2017
Kuehne + Nagel has begun building its new “Pharma Hub Switzerland” that aims to strengthen the forwarder’s position in the pharma and healthcare industry.
The Pharma Hub will be part of the KN PharmaChain network, providing multimodal temperature-controlled door-to-door shipping, visibility and traceability of deliveries, as well as intensive and proactive risk management.
The new Kuehne + Nagel logistics facility in Möhlin will provide 16,300 m sq of logistics space, which will be used to manage approximately 46,000 pallet spaces using a warehouse system that combines manual and automatic operation.
Three different temperature zones will be available for the highly sensitive products: -20 degrees, -2 to +8 degrees, plus +15 to +25 degrees. In addition, hazardous goods and narcotics can be stored in dedicated areas.
Detlef Trefzger, chief executive of Kuehne + Nagel International, said: “Switzerland is an important pharma location with global reach. The cutting-edge facility in Möhlin is a strategic investment in this growth sector and supports us to serve our customers even better, especially through integration with the global Kuehne + Nagel pharma network.”
