Kuehne + Nagel

Kuehne + Nagel is set to manage global life science company Sanofi’s warehouse activities in Geel, Belgium at the logistic giant’s newly expanded facility providing a state of the art pharma area for the raw materials storage of Sanofi and managing the pharma company’s GDP services.

The expanded Kuehne + Nagel warehouse in Geel offers temperature controlled zones (15°c to 25°c) with cold storage (2°C up to 8°C) and freeze storage (-25°C up to -15°C) capabilities. Additionally, a special fire protection storage zone allows Sanofi to safely store their raw materials which are classified as flammable. For raw material sample taking a pressurized sample booth is installed.

The facility in Geel is part of the global KN PharmaChain network, a multi-modal logistics solution for temperature-controlled door-to-door transportation which allows accurate traceability of the deliveries and intensive, proactive risk management.

“The implementation of the new external warehouse at Kuehne+Nagel provides a sustainable and scalable warehousing solution“, says Chris Majoor, director Supply Chain. “It is a strategic enabler for the future growth of the manufacturing site Geel”, confirms Gunther Pauwels, VP & GM Sanofi Geel.

Kevin Nash, managing director of Kuehne + Nagel BeLux: “We are delighted to start into this cooperation with Sanofi, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. This new contract highlights our commitment to the pharma and healthcare industry and is a validation of our decision to further extend the Geel warehouse.”
