DSV invests in North Sea Port with new pharmaceutical warehouse
Pharmaceutical logistics are about to find a new destination in Ghent’s North Sea Port facilities. DSV is about to start construction of a new 110-square-metre warehouse that will accommodate pharmaceutical products. Considering the multimodal character of the North Sea Port, trains carrying controlled temperature containers could become an essential part of DSV’s pharmaceutical supply chains.
“The focus is entirely on storage and distribution for one of the most vital sectors of our economy: healthcare. Products passing through the warehouse will include materials for clinical trials, human drugs, medical devices, natural health products, veterinary drugs and pharmaceutical raw materials,” commented DSV about its new warehouse.
The warehouse will be located in Ghent’s Kluizendok on the left bank of the port. According to DSV, “the building will contain 6,000 square metres of temperature-controlled storage areas with ambient temperatures of 2-8°C, -20°C and -40°C.” Additionally, it will offer extra space for the storage of dangerous goods and will be able to accommodate multiple trucks at a time, considering that it will have 110 loading and unloading docks.
