CEVA opens pharma facility in UK


CEVA Logistics has opened a fully refurbished 132,000 square foot facility at Redditch, UK, adding to the supply chain management company's investment in the pharmaceutical logistics industry, according to Shipping Gazette.
Refurbishments at the West Midlands site included the addition of LED lighting and the installation of a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, which enables the facility to provide temperature controlled areas. There is also a dedicated area in the warehouse for specialist items to be stored at a temperature ranging between two and eight degrees Celsius.
The refurbished site is now a Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) approved facility which certifies it is a safe and secure component of a medical supply chain. In order to receive this authorisation, a potential license holder must show compliance with a number of principles including the segregation of prescription only medication.
The opening of the facility coincides with a new five year warehousing agreement and a three year transport agreement with Nutricia, a provider of medical nutrition in the UK. Under this agreement, CEVA provides the warehousing and distribution of medical nutritional feed products for a wide variety of medical conditions for both pharmaceutical wholesalers and home-bound patients.
The site has a registered pharmacy to dispense prescriptions, and the onsite pharmacist and support team check all home delivery orders and clinically check all prescriptions using bespoke software.
In addition, BMI Healthcare, a large private hospital group in the UK, is also transitioning to the new specialist facility where CEVA will continue to provide warehousing and distribution for its medicines and hospital consumable goods.
CEVA's executive vice president UK and Nordics Michael O'Donoghue said that the state-of-the-art site "will meet the exact requirements of our healthcare customers both now and in the future. We have built up strong partnerships with our clients in this industry and we are looking forward to seeing this new facility strengthen and add value to their supply chains."
