Maersk opens new pharma distribution centre in Poland
To extend its cold storage offer in Poland, Maersk has put into service the newest pharma distribution centre in Masovian Voivodeship. It is the company’s second facility of this type in the country. Two global pharmaceutical players became the first tenants of the warehouse.
For 20 years in a row, Maersk has been providing professional warehousing and distribution services in Poland to the global pharmaceutical industry. Its first storage facility is located in Mszczonów, more than 40 kilometres from Warsaw. In this Polish town, the Denmark-based shipping and logistics company launched its second pharma distribution centre, which is a part of the existing terminal. The new pharma warehouse has an area of around 15,000 square metres and a capacity for storing around 24,00 pallets. Two pharmaceutical companies, Boehringer Ingelheim and Bayer, have become the first tenants of the new centre.
Maersk constructed the new distribution centre in line with sustainability and climate neutrality. There were installed solar roof panels with a total power of around 600 megawatt-hours per year and a chilled water system used to supply power to the coolers of all air handling units and fan coils. Moreover, the facility is equipped with a heat recovery system that collects heat and supplies it to the buffer tank. The new distribution centre is fully compliant with EU GDP (Good Distribution Practice) (2013/C 343/01), GMP, ISO 9001 [QMS], ISO 13485 [Medical Devices], ISO 22000 [HACCP].
