Through the acquisition, the company’s healthcare unit, UPS Healthcare, will add temperature-controlled facilities in 14 countries, and 3,000 employees to the UPS team across Europe and Latin America.
The company will operate under the new name Bomi Group, a UPS Company. Bomi Group CEO Marco Ruini will join the UPS Healthcare leadership team and transition to a new role leading distribution and operations in southern Europe and Latin America. UPS Healthcare customers now have access to 216 facilities with a total of over 1.5m sq m of cGMP and GDP-compliant healthcare distribution space in 37 countries and territories.
Executive Vice President and President of UPS International, Healthcare and Supply Chain Solutions Kate Gutmann commented: “Together with Marco Ruini and the Bomi team, UPS Healthcare will deliver even more sophisticated and globally integrated solutions to our customers throughout Europe and Latin America.

The UPS Healthcare team has developed a detailed transition plan to support the continued growth of the business while further connecting cold chain capabilities to major European and Latin American gateways.
