Roissy CDG hub extended to 2,200 m2 across three temperature-controlled areas
Bolloré Logistics is reinforcing its healthcare product processing facilities with an 800 m2 extension of a pharmaceutical unit with a temperature of +15C to +25C. With the health crisis having increased global trade in pharma products, it has become necessary to resize the corresponding logistics resources. Bolloré Logistics, a leader in air freight in France, has taken the initiative to support this trend by investing in its Roissy CDG Hub.
With the new unit, Bolloré Logistics now boasts a surface area of 2,200 m2 at its Roissy CDG Hub, divided into three temperature-controlled areas of +2C to +8C, +15C to +25C, and -20C. These facilities are reserved exclusively for processing healthcare product shipments in a secure environment managed by teams trained in Good Distribution Practices (GDPs).
Three dedicated dock doors ensure the seamless and temperature-controlled flow of goods for total mastery of the cold chain during operations. The new cell also has a racked area with a 550-pallet capacity as well as a mass storage area. The new facility increases Bolloré Logistics’ capacity to manage cross-docking operations and respond to the specific requirements of each product category, including vaccines and nuclear-medicine products.
Bolloré Logistics’ Roissy CDG Hub benefits from a strategic location, its main advantage being direct access to runways providing direct contact with transport flows. The site is fully secured by powerful systems, including video surveillance 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. The Hub has obtained ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 certification and IATA CEIV Pharma certification, covering the requirements of the main standards in the distribution of pharmaceutical products, including the European GDPs and the WHO Guide.
