Kuehne + Nagel Ireland has signed a multi-year contract with West Pharmaceuticals, a global manufacturer in the design and production of technologically advanced systems for global pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
Kuehne + Nagel has invested in a custom-built facility dedicated to the management of West Pharmaceutical’s contract logistics and road logistics services. The warehouse boasts racking for 30,000 pallets and has a temperature-controlled system to accommodate the requirements pertaining to West Pharmaceutical’s operations.
The commitment from Kuehne + Nagel stretches further than the dedicated West Pharmaceuticals facility, with a further nine locations in Ireland also devoted to the pharmaceutical and medtech industries.
“West and Kuehne + Nagel has embarked on a critical and global partnership for both contract logistics and overland transportation. We’ve specifically engaged with Kuehne + Nagel Ireland’s leadership team and benefitted from their expertise and personalised customer-focused approach, while at the same time leveraging the breadth and depth of the global Kuehne + Nagel team – it’s a winning approach. Particularly, we worked closely with the Kuehne + Nagel Ireland team on the strategy to secure land, build and manage a dedicated warehouse, allowing our West Pharmaceuticals operations in Dublin to focus and deliver on its core technology and manufacturing competency,” said Michael Moes, Vice President Global Supply Management of West Pharmaceuticals.
