Bolloré Logistics is increasing its pharma capabilities at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG), following increased demand for healthcare shipments during the pandemic.
The logistics firm is expanding its hub with an extra 800 sq m of pharma warehousing suitable for storing goods between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius.
“The new facility increases Bolloré Logistics’ capacity to manage cross-docking operations and respond to the specific requirements of each product category, including vaccines and nuclear-medicine products,” the company said.
The new unit also has a racked area with capacity for 550 pallets, as well as a mass storage area.
After the expansion, Bolloré Logistics’ pharma hub will have 2,200 sq m of warehousing space that can store goods between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius, 15 to 25 degrees Celsius, and -20 degrees Celsius.
Pascal Le Guevel, director of the Bolloré Logistics CDG hub, commented: “This investment demonstrates our determination to support the health sector in its logistics challenges. Our facilities and solutions are specially designed to respond to requirements on regulations and operational excellence and are adapted to each category of goods transported.”
Franck Philippe, health market director France at Bolloré Logistics, added: “With this environment, we are able to deliver complete and needs-adapted solutions to all our customers, from the preparation of active containers to that of passive packaging, including customised services such as the use of isothermal sleeves and real-time monitoring solutions.”
