DHL opens life sciences logistics center at Dublin Airport

DHL has opened a new state-of-the-art life sciences logistics facility at Dublin Airport in Ireland, further enhancing its end-to-end pharmaceutical supply chain capabilities.

The 40,000ft² site is located in Horizon Logistics Park adjacent to the airport, and offers pharmaceutical businesses temperature-controlled end-to-end supply chain management including storage, pick-and-pack, and inventory control. Plans are in place to extend the service across the temperature regimes and provide value-added repack and postponement services. The new DHL logistics center is expected to create up to 50 jobs over the coming months.

Segregated into different temperature regimes, the site offers a range of storage environments including ambient (15-25º); chill (2-8º); and a blast and holding freezer capable of temperatures of -20º.

Located close to European markets and well serviced by road, air and sea, nine out of 10 of the top global pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies have already chosen Ireland as their manufacturing base.

Ciaran Foley, managing director, Ireland DHL Supply Chain, said, “We are very excited to open this site in Dublin dedicated to the life sciences sector in Ireland. DHL has already established an excellent life sciences customer base and reputation in Ireland through its air, ocean, road and express divisions, and this new site gives customers access to a completely integrated global logistics solution.

“Our investment in Horizon also gives us the opportunity to provide supply chain services which are fully compliant and managed within strict regulatory controls from start to finish. This is the cornerstone of DHL’s offering.”
