SUPPLY chain giant, CEVA Logistics, has given its Irish operations a boost with the introduction of a 15,000 square foot temperature-controlled facility at its Dublin warehouse.
The new building has been built as an insulated building-within-a-building and is to allow it to better serve customers with medical products that must be kept within 15-25 degrees.
“Temperature controlled logistics are an increasingly important part of the Irish export market as life sciences manufacturing continues to grow in the country,” said CEVA managing director Ireland, Gary O’Connor.
“This new addition to our service offering will enable us to store up to 2100 pallets of medical products within the 15-25 degree temperature range and cater for growing numbers of customer enquiries where temperature-controlled storage is an essential part of their business.”
The new Dublin unit also has modern air conditioning, heating and cooling technology.
The enhanced facility is expected to enable CEVA to provide customers with a 24/7 service for goods moving through the unit.
The next stage of the facility’s development is expected to be the introduction of on-site pharmacists which will start by the end of the calendar year.
