Located 18 miles from LAX international Airport, the hub gives Tower its first location on the West Coast of America
Tower Cold Chain has launched a hub in Los Angeles to store its pharmaceutical containers. Each hub helps businesses and airlines to access the company’s reusable temperature-controlled containers.
The latest hub, located 18 miles from LAX international Airport, gives Tower its first location on the West Coast of America, a pivotal region in terms of access across the Pacific and into South America.
With up to 10,000 sqft of warehousing, the hub will be used to house products across the company’s range.
“By having strategic locations around the world, we can guarantee proximity and availability of our containers – allowing customers to ship temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical, life-science and biotech products,” said Natalie Robinson, Global Head of Operations at Tower Cold Chain.
“Each hub opening strengthens our global presence, something reflected in our recent recognition with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade. We’re on course to double the network during 2022, as well as expanding many existing hubs to full-range despatch capacity. Forthcoming locations include Chicago and Incheon.”
The company says its choice of location is governed by the volume of inbound and outbound deliveries likely to pass through the airport. With California home to several major biotech and pharmaceutical hubs, it was high on Tower’s priority list for a hub, the company says.
“We approached DSV because of its overall quality and calibre as a freight forwarder, but also the excellence of its Los Angeles operation,” said Natalie.
“DSV was able to provide us with dedicated space within its facility – initially, 5,000 sq. ft but with the flexibility to grow to 10,000 sq. ft. Its specialist staff also gave us every confidence they can manage the requirements of the Tower solution.”
