Kuehne+Nagel Ireland will open a temperature-controlled facility to meet the growing demands of the country’s healthcare industry. The site, scheduled to open in late July 2022, is strategically located near the Dublin airport and Dublin port. Along with three existing healthcare warehouses, it expands Kuehne+Nagel’s healthcare footprint in Ireland to 40,000 sq m.
Ireland is one of the largest exporters of healthcare products globally, with over 50 FDA-approved manufacturing plants. Kuehne+Nagel stated that its commitment as market leader in healthcare logistics in the country continues with the investment in this new facility.
The new HPRA-approved facility will be used for all storage, distribution, and quality activities. According to Kuehne+Nagel, the facility uses energy-efficient equipment to maintain the warehouse at a controlled temperature between 15-25 degrees Celsius, and will house 34,000 Euro-pallet positions with segregated loading and unloading gates.
Commenting on the expansion, Managing Director of Kuehne+Nagel Ireland Pamela Quinn says: “Pharma & Healthcare companies in Ireland are at the forefront of the research and development of advanced treatments and therapies. This new facility enables Kuehne+Nagel to support the incredible progress and we are proud to be the partners for some of the largest multinationals and companies within this industry”.
