UPS is expanding its network of health care distribution by adding new facilities in Singapore; Venlo, Netherlands; Burlington, Canada; and Louisville, Ky.
It now has 30 facilities, with dedicated health care distribution space of more than 4 million square feet.
Opening in the first quarter of 2011, UPS’s new 43,000-square-foot pharma facility in Singapore will include cold chain capacity to support an increasing number of companies locating manufacturing operations in Asia. Also opening by June 2011 is a 177,000-square-foot center in Burlington. It is the 10th UPS health care facility in Canada.
“We are seeing increased demand from health care manufacturers wanting more agile supply chains. This clear industry trend is driving companies to look for more global solutions and deeper supply chain partnerships,” said Bill Hook, vice president of global strategy for UPS Healthcare Logistics. “We have a robust pipeline of health care business and are continuing to invest in this industry to meet the fast-evolving needs of our global health care customers.”
