Doubling healthcare logistics floor space in Hamburg
Clear commitment to Hamburg as a location as Arvato will more than double the logistics floor space at the healthcare location Allermöhe by mid-2016. The expansion encompasses around 10,000 square metres of logistics floor space and up to 12,000 additional pallet spaces. The diggers will begin working on the building site from November onwards.
Demographic change, major medical advances and increasing cost pressure all pose challenges for healthcare and its players. Growth markets are still in the process of establishing adequate and comprehensive healthcare. Industrialized countries, on the other hand, are facing the tasks of improving the effectiveness and efficiency of how prevention and care is provided and creating new distribution channels. This involves focusing on the patient and ensuring the highest standards of quality. Integrated healthcare models that combine high-quality solutions with economic efficiency are becoming increasingly essential in this process.
Stable systems and reliable processes are especially crucial in the healthcare sector. After all, human health is at stake.
