DHL expands pharma logistics capacity in Florstadt

  • DHL Supply Chain is planning a new state-of-the-art, climate-neutral logistics center and is enlarging its Life Sciences and Healthcare Campus in Florstadt, Germany.
  • The approx. 32,000-square-meter building expands DHL’s service portfolio and strengthens the Rhine-Main economic region.

DHL Supply Chain, the contract logistics leader within Deutsche Post DHL Group, is currently building an approximately 32,000-square-meter logistics center in Florstadt, Germany. Located 35 kilometers north of Frankfurt am Main, the center is scheduled to open in late 2021. The new building expands the current capacity of the multi-user campus for pharmaceuticals and medical products in Florstadt to over 70,000 square meters in total and will service markets across Europe. The site currently consists of two logistics centers.

The new facility will offer customers from the pharmaceutical and medical products sector additional warehouse space in temperature zones of 15-25°C, 2-8°C and
-24°C. Customers can also take advantage of a separate 1,750 square meters of space for storing hazardous materials. The entire warehouse features continuous temperature management, state-of-the-art security and alarm systems, and has received all major life sciences and healthcare certifications such as GDP, GMP and ISO 13485.

“One of our most important objectives is to continuously expand our business in step with the pharmaceutical industry,” says Rainer Haag, Managing Director at DHL Supply Chain Germany & Alps. “Especially in those markets that are important for us, such as Germany and Europe, our goal is to continue to grow and to help companies outsource and optimize activities outside their core business, such as logistics.”

The multi-user campus in Florstadt is located just a few kilometers from the heart of the Frankfurt Rhine-Main economic region and offers ideal access to Frankfurt Airport, DHL’s parcel and Express network, as well as rail and highway networks.

“Because of the many projects we have implemented over the years, our team in Florstadt is highly experienced and flexible,” says Murat Erzurumluoglu, Business Unit Director of Life Sciences & Healthcare at DHL Supply Chain Germany & Alps. “They can handle all manner of contract logistics orders on very short notice, plan and implement logistics solutions for customers, and respond quickly to changes in day-to-day business.”
Matthias Wellms, Head of Business Development for Life Sciences & Healthcare at DHL Supply Chain Germany & Alps adds: “We are very pleased to be taking this next step for the site and further improving on the good conditions it already offers.”

The climate-neutral warehouse features photovoltaics, heat pumps and a solar wall, and has received Gold Standard certification from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). It is scheduled to open at the end of 2021. With this latest project, DHL Supply Chain fulfills its responsibility for sustainable business practice and makes an important contribution to Deutsche Post DHL Group’s target of zero-emission logistics by 2050. At the same time, DHL Supply Chain further empowers its customers to achieve more sustainable supply chains.
