Yusen Logistics to launch two new projects in Benelux
Apr 24, 2017: Yusen Logistics has announced its plan to launch two major new projects in the Benelux, offering logistics service in the pharmaceutical & healthcare industry.
The existing Yusen Logistics Antwerp Distribution Center (ADC), located in Melsele, Belgium, is currently the central European hub within the European Yusen Logistics Pharmaceutical Superhighway system, moving over 2 million pallets of pharmaceuticals per annum. This facility currently features an 18,000 square meter bonded GDP licensed pharmaceutical warehouse, including 1,500 cold store pallet positions.
In response to increasing demand for its premium quality pharmaceutical & healthcare logistics solutions from customers in the Netherlands, Yusen Logistics will be starting work on construction in the near future of a new 11,225 square meter pharmaceutical facility at the strategically located Borchwerf II industrial zone near Roosendaal in the Netherlands. This new Yusen Logistics facility will consist of cold storage and ambient zones and will open for business in the first quarter of 2018.
Piet Boogaard, managing director, Yusen Logistics, Benelux, said, “Both projects underline the importance of our strategy to further grow our Healthcare activities in Europe. We are grateful to our customers for their trust and confidence in our services, and I look forward to working together to make these new projects a great success.”
