Marken has announced the opening of an operations centre and warehouse facility at John F. Kennedy (JFK) airport in the US. The facility is designed to enable a higher volume of time sensitive, temperature-sensitive clinical trial shipments into and out of the New York gateway. The new facility is closer to JFK airport and offers more usable square footage than the previous location.
The 10,000 sq ft facility is located just over a mile from the JFK airport cargo entrance. The facility is equipped with cold chain equipment to manage the storage, re-conditioning and distribution of investigational drugs through a TSA-secure and GDP-compliant warehouse area. The facility has the capacity to receive and store heavy weight and larger containers for oversized shipments, including RAP and RKN active solutions shipments.
Kathy Gerson, Marken’s Vice Presidents US East Coast Operations/ Global Customer Service said, “The newer facility brings us closer to JFK airport, and provides us more dedicated space than our previous location could provide. As customer demand increases for temperature controlled shipments, it makes sense for our facilities to be in closer proximity to all major airlines and in a larger space to accommodate the growth we are experiencing in larger scale shipments.”
