UPS announces new healthcare distribution centre in the Netherlands

UPS has announced that it is building a new healthcare distribution centre in Roermond, the Netherlands.

The new facility, which will measure close to 28,000 square metres and provide 41,000 pallet places, is scheduled to be completed in January 2016.

The announcement comes a month after UPS opened a healthcare-dedicated air freight forwarding facility at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.

UPS said that the new centre’s proximity to the group’s European air hub at Cologne/Bonn airport in Germany will allow for short transit times, including next-day and two-day service, to global destinations. Up to 200 jobs will be created once the facility is fully operational.

“This third dedicated healthcare facility in the logistics-and transportation-centric area of Limburg significantly strengthens the capacity of UPS’s European distribution campus,” said Harld Peters, President, UPS West Europe. “It allows shippers to comply with international healthcare quality standards and serve a broad customer base, either directly through UPS’s global express transportation network or via UPS satellite healthcare facilities in other European countries, such as Spain, Italy, Poland or Hungary.”

The UPS global healthcare distribution network now encompasses more than 50 locations throughout Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and South America.
