The company will expand the existing Antwerp distribution center (ADC) situated in Melsele, Belgium.

The warehouse, which currently features about 18,000m² bonded GDP licensed pharmaceutical warehouse space, will be added with an additional 8,000m² of warehouse.

The expanded facility includes space for cold storage (2-8°C) and ambient storage (15-25°C), while the current facility includes 1,500 cold store pallet positions (2-8°C).

Yusen’s expanded pharmaceutical warehouse facility is expected to be operational by the end of this year.

With distributing around two million pallets of pharmaceuticals per annum, the ADC is the central European hub within the European Yusen Logistics pharmaceutical super highway system.

Yusen will construct 11,225m² pharmaceutical facility at the Borchwerf II industrial zone near Roosendaal in the Netherlands to meet the increasing demand from the pharmaceutical and healthcare logistics customers in the country.

Expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2018, the new facility will feature cold storage and ambient zones.

Yusen Logistics Benelux managing director Piet Boogaard said: “Both projects underline the importance of our strategy to further grow our Healthcare activities in Europe.

“We are grateful to our customers for their trust and confidence in our services, and I look forward to working together to make these new projects a great success.”
