Geodis has officially put its 700m2 temperature-controlled location in Rodgau, Germany, into operation.
With a temperature-controlled warehouse between 15°C and 25°C and an additional cooling area with a temperature range between 2°C and 8°C, the pharma cross-dock center is intended to provide optimal conditions for the handling and interim storage of pharmaceutical products. The facility ensures continuous cooling along the entire transportation and logistics chain. The direct connection to the A45 highway and the proximity to Frankfurt Airport ensure good accessibility.
The transportation of vaccines and pharmaceuticals requires fast handling and a continuously temperature-controlled environment. In addition to the CEIV pharmaceutical product-handling certification of the Frankfurt site, Rodgau offers GDP-compliant solutions for quality assurance in pharmaceutical distribution and is therefore an integral part of the company’s strengthening of its 27 CEIV-certified air freight locations around the world.
Antje Lochmann, managing director, Germany, Geodis, said, “In addition to the strategic acquisition of transport specialist Trans-o-Flex at the beginning of the year, Rodgau is now our first pharma cross dock in Germany to go into active operation. With this investment, we are creating an important basis for our further positioning in the German market, which is considered Europe’s most important exporter of pharmaceuticals, and is thus significantly strengthening our portfolio for sensitive and fast air freight in pharmaceutical logistics.”
