New UPS healthcare facility opens in Colombia

US-based express integrator UPS has opened a 76,000 sq ft dedicated healthcare facility, located near El Dorado International Airport in San Diego Industrial Park in the Funza, Cundinamarca area of Colombia to serve pharmaceutical, biopharma and medical device companies active in the Latin American market – whether imports, domestic delivery or exports.
This is UPS’s second such centre in the country and its ninth in the region (the others being located in in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, México and Puerto Rico).
“Latin America is a vital region for the global healthcare industry,” said Romaine Seguin, UPS Americas region president. “This facility offers greater access to UPS’s first-class logistics solutions for pharmaceutical products and medical devices, providing healthcare customers in the region with the confidence and support they need to achieve their business goals.” 
In addition to distribution services and warehouse management, the state-of-the-art facility also offers value-added services such as as labeling, product kitting and configuration, and repackaging. UPS’s warehouse management system enables full inventory visibility, standardised processing and reporting.
Customers also have access to the integrator’s global transportation technology network for complete supply chain control, UPS said.
