GEFCO adds third Life Sciences and Healthcare dedicated temperature-controlled warehouse


GEFCO has opened its third Life Sciences and Healthcare dedicated temperature-controlled warehouse. The facility is based in close proximity to London Heathrow airport, UK. This site complements GEFCO Forwarding warehouses’ in Frankfurt, Germany and Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The new 15,000 sq ft facility will be used in the forwarding of pharmaceutical goods and features different temperature areas: from ambient (15ºC to 25ºC), and cool (2ºC to 8ºC) to frozen (-15°C to -25ºC).

Josette Wells GEFCO Forwarding Quality & Compliance Director, said: “We are able to differentiate our service by holding a Wholesale Dealer Authorisation which demonstrates to our customers that we operate under the same compliant standards that they do.”

The Wholesale Dealer Authorisation allows the facility to store human and veterinary medicines as well as medical devices as part of its logistics and transportation services. 

The facility also provides high security levels including onsite x-ray screening for air cargo and constant 24/7 monitoring. The new centre is GDP compliant and ISO 9001:2015 certified.
