Arvato is setting the course for further growth in healthcare sector.
The groundbreaking for a new logistics center took place this week in Harsewinkel. From this fall, medicines and medical technology (med-tech) products are to be shipped to wholesalers, pharmacies and hospitals all over the world from the new, roughly 4500-m2 logistics center. The new facility is specifically tailored to the needs of pharmaceutical and med-tech clients, can accommodate 8,600 pallets, and features special storage areas for narcotics, and production rooms for re-labeling processes. Part of the hall is also designed as a cold storage at temperatures between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius, for temperature-sensitive products. The picking takes place in this temperature range as well.
