    DB Schenker expands healthcare and pharma services from Schiphol Airport

    DB Schenker’s Schiphol branch has doubled its capacity to 20,600 m2 in the past year. The new warehouse meets the high requirements for handling pharma and healthcare-related goods in accordance with the Good Distribution Practice (GDP) guideline.

    The expansion of the Schenker facility at the Prologis Fokker Logistics Park was officially opened and taken into use on Thursday 9 March.

    “With this expansion, the focus is on the long term and the further development of our services,” says Paul Schreiber, Vice President Air Freight at DB Schenker in the Benelux. “Throughout the entire supply chain, we can guarantee that sensitive goods are transported and handled correctly. Our dedicated teams in Air Freight, Ocean Freight and Contract Logistics are specially trained on this. The temperature- controlled DB Schenker warehouse at Schiphol Airport is a value-adding extension to our global network of GDP facilities. The processes within the business units are set up in such a way that the safety of the end consumer is always safeguarded.”

    Fenna Beekhuizen, Air Freight Healthcare Product Manager Benelux: “Our new warehouse is equipped for temperature-controlled cross-docking between 15-25°C. In a large cold cell, we load and unload goods between 2-8°C. Here, we can pack the shipments in active or passive packaging material, so that the temperature of the product is maintained throughout the supply chain.”
