DHL expands service for the pharma sector

DHL Global Forwarding has opened a new Competence Centre at Vienna Airport, expanding the range of services available to the life sciences and healthcare industries.

500 m² of refrigerated warehouse space is designed to handle temperature-sensitive products and allow them to be prepped for air shipment. The site’s team of experts is also developing products, solutions and services to guarantee safe and problem-free passage along the entire supply chain, from manufacturing line to end consumer.

The certified Competence Centre is expected to tranship approximately 20,000 pallets a year. To ensure the quality of sensitive goods, each product is marked for placement in a specific temperature range. Goods can thus be stored in temperature zones of between 2-8° Celsius and 15-25° Celsius. Alongside its warehousing service, DHL Global Forwarding also offers loading and unloading of refrigerated containers, packing of products, coordination of the freight space and organisation of the necessary transport equipment.

Starting this summer, DHL Freight’s product LTL ColdChain Europe, a pan-European road freight pallet network dedicated to the life sciences and healthcare industries, will be connected with the Vienna Competence Centre.

The DHL Life Science Competence Centre is a worldwide initiative oriented towards people, processes and infrastructure in the life sciences and healthcare industries. DHL currently maintains 21 of these Competence Centres as part of a global network with a strong focus on markets in developing countries.
