Movianto opens European distribution centre

For temperature-controlled storage of pharmaceuticals

Movianto Nederland, a logistics and transportation company specialising in pharmaceuticals and healthcare, is set to begin operations in a new state-of-the-art warehouse.

The firm says the strategically located warehouse is the largest facility for the storage of deep frozen pharmaceutical products in Europe.

The European distribution centre, located in Oss, offers 22,000 temperature-controlled pallet spaces ensuring high quality standards for products according to GDP guidelines and ISO 9001:2008 certification.

The new facility includes an area with 50 deep frozen pallet locations (–40ºC) for specialist pharmaceutical products. A dedicated area within the warehouse has a capacity for 2,220 cold pallet locations (+2ºC/+8ºC), as well as 350 frozen pallets (< –20ºC), which can be used for storing blood plasma products, for example, and can be extended to house a further 750 pallets.

The warehouse also includes 1,100 narcotics pallet spaces (+15ºC/+25ºC) and a manufacturing room for re-labelling and repackaging and fulfilment activities.

With its own dual temperature controlled and validated transportation fleet, Movianto Nederland provides distribution within the Benelux region in conjunction with Movianto Belgium; this applies to ambient as well as for +2ºC/+8ºC transport.
