CEVA Logistics has enhanced services in Dublin with a 15,000 square foot temperature controlled facility at its warehouse.
The new building has been constructed as an insulated building-within-a-building on the city’s airport industrial park and will allow it to better serve customers with medical products requiring to be kept within a constant temperature range of 15-25 degrees.
CEVA Ireland managing director, Gary O’Connor says temperature controlled logistics are increasingly important part of the Irish export market as life science manufacturing continues to grow.
He says: “This new addition to our service offering will enable us to store up to 2,100 pallets of medical products within the 15-25 degree temperature range and cater for growing numbers of customer enquiries where temperature-controlled storage is an essential part of their business.”
The new unit also features state-of-the-art air conditioning, heating and cooling technology complete with a Sintra system providing exceptional levels of clean air by using perforated ducts to diffuse the air within the facility.
With specialist clean room facilities, CEVA can also offer customers additional value added services including re-kitting and reassembling in a controlled environment.
The transformed facility enables CEVA to provide customers with a 24/7 service for any goods moving through the unit as it is now fully authorised under the Health Products Regulatory Authority Wholesalers Distribution Authorization scheme.
The next to stage of development will be the introduction of on-site pharmacists which will commence by the end of 2017.
