Ge­fco Group has opened its third ded­i­cated tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled ware­house for the Life Sci­ences and Health­care sec­tor. The fa­cil­ity is based near Lon­don Heathrow air­port, UK. This site com­ple­ments com­pany’s ware­houses in Frank­furt, Ger­many and Am­s­ter­dam, Nether­lands. The open­ing of the new 15,000 sq ft fa­cil­ity, re­in­forces and ex­pands Ge­fco’s Freight For­ward­ing busi­ness line of­fer­ing in the Life Science and Health­care sec­tor. “We are able to dif­fer­en­ti­ate our ser­vice by hold­ing a Whole­sale Dealer Autho­ri­sa­tion, which demon­strates to our cus­tomers that we op­er­ate un­der the same com­pli­ant stan­dards that they do,” said Josette Wells, For­ward­ing Qual­ity & Com­pli­ance Di­rec­tor, Ge­fco. “The Whole­sale Dealer Autho­ri­sa­tion al­lows the fa­cil­ity to store hu­man and ve­teri­nary medicines as well as med­i­cal de­vices as part of its lo­gis­tics and trans­porta­tion ser­vices.” The fa­cil­ity also pro­vides high se­cu­rity lev­els in­clud­ing on-site x-ray screen­ing for air cargo and con­stant 24/7 mon­i­tor­ing. The new cen­tre is GDP com­pli­ant and ISO 9001:2015 cer­ti­fied. “The Life Sci­ences and Health­care lo­gis­tics mar­ket is chang­ing and be­com­ing more com­plex. With the in­crease in tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive prod­ucts as well as the reg­u­la­tions re­lated to their trans­porta­tion, com­pa­nies need to put more fo­cus on con­trol and se­cu­rity,” said An­thony Gunn, Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent Freight For­ward­ing, Ge­fco. “The com­pany has a strong his­tory in the Life Science and Health­care sec­tor. The open­ing of this new UK fa­cil­ity re­flects Ge­fco’s con­tin­u­ous in­vest­ment in this sec­tor.”
