Kuehne + Nagel expands its Geel pharma facility

By Rachelle Harry

Kuehne + Nagel has upgraded and expanded its pharma hub in Geel, Belgium that offers multimodal, temperature-controlled forwarding and warehousing services.

The new Geel facility is also fully GxP compliant and certified – meaning it meets pharma handling and storage requirements of various countries.

It also has two cold chambers to handle varying temperature requirements.

The hub, which is situated near Brussels and Liège airports, covers a total area of 22,000 sq m (and has another 10,000 sq m for extensions).

Speaking at the facility’s opening ceremony, Tobias Jerschke, managing director of Kuehne + Nagel BeLux, said: “The enlarged pharma hub in Geel is an inherent part of our strategy to offer integrated logistics solutions to our customers, at the very centre of one of Europe’s strongest pharma clusters. Leveraging our distribution network, we make sure that hospitals, pharmacies, doctors and patients are supplied in full and on time.”

Kuehne + Nagel is also planning to open a 15,000 sq m airside pharma facility at the Brussels cargo airport (BruCargo). It is due to open in the second half of 2020.
