UPS to build Netherlands healthcare DC

The company said the new distribution center in Roermond will create as many as 200 jobs in the Netherlands.

   UPS will build a new 28,000-square-meter healthcare distribution center in Roermond, the Netherlands.
   The company said in a statement the construction of the new facility is in response to growing demand in the healthcare sector throughout Europe and the announcement comes just one month after UPS opened a healthcare-dedicated airfreight forwarding facility at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
   Scheduled to be completed in January 2016, the Roermond DC will provide inventory management, temperature-sensitive storage and quality assurance services, as well as direct feeder connections to UPS’s European airfreight hub at the Cologne/Bonn airport in Germany. The company said the proximity to Colognew/Bonn airport will provide customers with short transit times to global destinations, including next-day and two-day service.
   The distribution center will employ up to 200 people once fully operational, according to UPS.
   “This third dedicated healthcare facility in the logistics-and transportation-centric area of Limburg significantly strengthens the capacity of UPS’s European distribution campus,” Harld Peters, president of UPS West Europe, said of the new DC. “It allows shippers to comply with international healthcare quality standards and serve a broad customer base, either directly through UPS’s global express transportation network or via UPS satellite healthcare facilities in other European countries, such as Spain, Italy, Poland or Hungary.”
   With the new Roermond distribution center, UPS’s global healthcare distribution network will now include more than 50 locations throughout Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America and South America.
