CEVA Lo­gis­tics has en­hanced its ca­pa­bil­i­ties in Dublin with the in­tro­duc­tion of a 15,000 square foot tem­per­a­ture­con­trolled fa­cil­ity at its Dublin ware­house. The new build­ing has been con­structed as an in­su­lated build­ing-within-abuild­ing on the city's air­port in­dus­trial park and will al­low it to bet­ter serve cus­tomers with med­i­cal prod­ucts re­quir­ing to be kept within a con­stant tem­per­a­ture range of 15-25 de­grees.

"Tem­per­a­ture con­trolled lo­gis­tics are an in­creas­ingly im­por­tant part of the Ir­ish ex­port mar­ket as life sciences man­u­fac­tur­ing con­tin­ues to grow in the coun­try," states Gary O'Con­nor, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor-Ire­land, CEVA. "This new ad­di­tion to our ser­vice of­fer­ing will en­able us to store up to 2,100 pal­lets of med­i­cal prod­ucts within the 15-25 de­gree tem­per­a­ture range and cater for grow­ing num­bers of cus­tomer enquiries where tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled stor­age is an es­sen­tial part of their busi­ness."

The Sin­tra sys­tem pro­vides ex­cep­tional lev­els of clean air by us­ing per­fo­rated ducts to dif­fuse the air within the fa­cil­ity. Hav­ing spe­cial­ist clean room fa­cil­i­ties, the com­pany can also of­fer cus­tomers ad­di­tional value-added ser­vices in­clud­ing re-kit­ting and re­assem­bling in a con­trolled en­vi­ron­ment.

The trans­formed fa­cil­ity en­ables CEVA to pro­vide cus­tomers with a 24/7 ser­vice for any goods mov­ing through the unit as it is now fully au­tho­rised un­der the HPRA (Health Prod­ucts Reg­u­la­tory Author­ity) Whole­salers Dis­tri­bu­tion Au­tho­ri­sa­tion scheme. In or­der to re­ceive an au­tho­ri­sa­tion to whole­sale medic­i­nal prod­ucts, a po­ten­tial au­tho­ri­sa­tion/ li­cence holder must show com­pli­ance with the prin­ci­ple of Good Dis­tri­bu­tion Prac­tice (GDP). Com­pli­ance with th­ese prin­ci­ples is de­cided by the HPRA through reg­u­lar site in­spec­tions.

The next stage of the fa­cil­ity's de­vel­op­ment, which now caters to mul­ti­ple health­care cus­tomers, will be the in­tro­duc­tion of on-site phar­ma­cists which will com­mence by the end of 2017.
