DHL Supply Chain expands Germany-based multi-user warehouse facility in Florstadt

The contract logistics arm within Deutsche Post DHL Group, DHL Supply Chain is currently building an approximately 32,000 sq mt logistics centre in Florstadt, Germany.

The new building expands the current capacity of the multi-user campus for pharmaceuticals and medical products in Florstadt to over 70,000 sq mt in total and will service markets across Europe. The site currently consists of two logistics centres.

The new facility will offer customers from the pharmaceutical and medical products sector additional warehouse space in temperature zones of 15 to 25°C, 2 to 8°C and -24°C.

Customers can also take advantage of a separate 1,750 sq mt of space for storing hazardous materials.

Located 35 kilometers north of Frankfurt Rhine-Main economic region, the centre offers ideal access to Frankfurt Airport, DHL’s parcel and Express network, as well as rail and highway networks.

The multi-user campus facility is scheduled to open in late 2021.

“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 optimise activities outside their core business, such as logistics.”

“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 added, “We are very pleased to be taking this next step for the site and further improving on the good conditions it already offers.”
