GENCO, a provider of product lifecycle logistics, announced that it has opened its first healthcare distribution centre in Canada to serve a medical device and supplies manufacturer.
The facility, located in the greater Toronto area, will be utilized to distribute medical-surgical products, cold-chain biologics and spare parts to hospitals and distributors. GENCO states that this facility increases GENCO’s total Canadian footprint to more than 9m sq ft of managed warehouse space.
The manufacturer wanted to standardize its supply chain while lowering costs and chose GENCO as its 3PL partner. GENCO was selected after demonstrating its ability to support the requirements enforced by Health Canada, the federal department responsible for helping Canadians maintain and improve their health. These requirements include import holds, quarantine and batch isolation for testing. GENCO also maintains Canadian Standards Association compliance.
“We are very excited about this project; especially since it provides yet another opportunity to extend a relationship with a strategic customer operating in a complex supply chain,” said Art Smuck, President of GENCO’s healthcare logistics and technology solutions business units. “The Canadian market is a strategic priority for GENCO, and we look forward to serving the Canadian healthcare industry through our product lifecycle logistics approach.”
