April 09, 2021: Bolloré Logistics is reinforcing its healthcare product processing facilities with an 800 square metres extension of a pharmaceutical unit with a temperature of +15°C to +25°C. It has taken the initiative to support this trend by investing in its Roissy CDG hub in France.
With the new unit, Bolloré Logistics now boasts a surface area of 2,200 square metres at its Roissy CDG hub, divided into three temperature-controlled areas of +2°C to +8°C, +15°C to +25°C, and -20°C. These facilities are reserved exclusively for processing healthcare product shipments in a secure environment managed by teams trained in good distribution practices (GDPs).
Three dedicated dock doors ensure the seamless and temperature-controlled flow of goods for total mastery of the cold chain during operations. The new cell also has a racked area with a 550-pallet capacity as well as a mass storage area. The new facility increases Bolloré Logistics’ capacity to manage cross-docking operations and respond to the specific requirements of each product category, including vaccines and nuclear-medicine products.
“This investment demonstrates our determination to support the health sector in its logistics challenges. Our facilities and solutions are specially designed to respond to requirements on regulations and operational excellence and are adapted to each category of goods transported,” said Pascal Le Guevel, director of the Bolloré Logistics Roissy CDG hub.
The warehouse responds to all the requirements of European GDPs for pharmaceutical products. “With this environment, we are able to deliver complete and needs-adapted solutions to all our customers, from the preparation of active containers to that of passive packaging, including customised services such as the use of isothermal sleeves and real-time monitoring solutions,” said Franck Philippe, health market director, France at Bolloré Logistics.
Bolloré Logistics’ Roissy CDG Hub benefits from a strategic location, its main advantage being direct access to runways providing direct contact with transport flows. The hub has obtained ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 certification and IATA CEIV Pharma certification.
