UTi Worldwide opens pharma facility in Rome


UTi Worldwide announced that it is expanding its cold chain offering in Europe with a new 1,700 sq m facility in Rome, Italy. It is located close to Fiumicino – Leonardo da Vinci International Airport and the Trans-European Motorway.

“Italy is the world’s sixth-largest pharma manufacturer, and we positioned our Rome hub based on the high concentration of pharma companies operating in central Italy and south of the region,” said Phil Abbate, UTi Global Vice President, Pharmaceutical & Healthcare. “Our pharma handling protocols and enhanced capabilities ensure that inbound and outbound pharmaceutical products are handled safely and securely to ensure product integrity.”

“Our Rome facility maintains the highest standards in pharmaceutical freight forwarding for our clients, with three temperature-controlled rooms and strict handling protocols that exceed good distribution practices and other regulatory standards,” Abbate added. “Our Rome expansion with three rooms – one set for 2-8°C range, and two others in the 15-25°C range – allows us to provide these value-added solutions efficiently.”
