DHL Supply Chain will spend $150 million to expand its network for distributing pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
The plan includes adding nine sites by the end of the year, bringing to 30 the number of licensed facilities to support distribution of time-critical and temperature-sensitive health care products in the United States.
Facilities are planned in Indianapolis, Raleigh, N.C., Memphis, Tenn., south central Pennsylvania and unspecified locations in California and Virginia.
“This expansion allows DHL Supply Chain to continue to deepen the connections between our customers and the patients they serve,” Scott Cubbler, president of life sciences and health care, said in a statement June 13. “This helps us leverage differentiated routes to market, driving even greater efficiency and productivity across the supply chain for customers.”
DHL Supply Chain is a unit of Deutsche Post DHL in Bonn, Germany, and ranks No. 3 on the Transport Topics Top 50 list of largest logistics companies in North America. — Transport Topics
