Arvato Healthcare is expanding its services to Alcalá with a 418,000 sq ft extension of its existing distribution centre in the Spanish city. Starting in autumn 2016, the company will dispatch medicines and medical technology products from the site.
“The healthcare offerings in Spain comprise the entire order-to-cash cycle, from customer services and order management, warehousing and transport management, through to invoicing, accounts receivable management and credit control,” said Emilio Juaranz, general manager of Arvato SCM Solutions, Spain. “This also includes GDP-compliant storage for products between +2°C and +8°C, as well as their actively and passively cooled transport in insulation boxes.
“The warehouse also provides an area covering 3,900 square metres for storing ambient products in the +15°C to +25°C temperature range required for most medicines.”
