Maersk has launched a project to create a second pharmaceutical warehouse as part of its existing warehousing and distribution centre in Mszczonow (Poland), expected to be operational by end of June 2021.
Equipped with a modern, state-of-the-art temperature controlling system that will ensure the safety of sensitive cargo, the new building will be to a large extent powered by renewable energy, ensuring its sustainability and carbon neutrality. The facility will have integrated Quality Management System implemented, based on Good Distribution and Manufacturing Practice (GDP) and ISO certificates.
The warehouse will be an addition to Maersk’s already existing own warehousing and distribution centre in Mszczonow (Poland), which has dedicated sections for human and animal health products.
Jakub Mach, Ph.D., Country Cold Chain Logistics Manager at Maersk in Poland, said: “In such an industry, quality plays a pivotal role and it can only be guaranteed by experienced and competent personnel who have a thorough understanding of specific requirements of pharmaceutical customers. In that sense, the new project is equally important for the additional warehousing space we will bring to the market, as it is for the capabilities of our people involved in daily operations”.
Hristo Petkov, Global Vertical Head, Pharma at Maersk, said: “Our ambition is to be top choice healthcare logistics provider and No. 1 in Animal Health logistics by offering high quality solutions for the healthcare industry, as well as flexibility in adapting to its specific requirement. The pharmaceutical industry is experiencing growth, which we can support with even more warehousing and distribution capacity, coupled with market knowledge and capabilities of our dedicated teams.”
