Movianto, a major and experienced healthcare logistics provider dedicated to healthcare product distribution in Europe, has begun building a new GDP warehouse in Køge, Denmark.
The healthcare logistics company is based in Denmark and has been acting as a strategic distribution hub to customers in all of the Nordics, as well as Iceland and the Baltics for over 20 years. In this region, Movianto specialises in the safe storage and transport of human and veterinary pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and vaccines.
Marina Steensen, Managing Director of Movianto in the Nordics, says, “This new warehouse will contribute to building the foundation for future growth for Movianto in the Nordics. From a modern and sustainably built warehouse, we will offer more of the types of services our clients and potential clients now demand – amongst other things, cold storage and capacity for dangerous goods.”
Movianto has decided to work with Logicenters, a trusted provider of logistics centres in the Nordics, in order to construct this new facility to state-of-the-art standards. The building includes weather sealing to increase energy efficiency, smart lighting, eco-friendly surface water management, solar panels and parking spaces ready to charge electric vehicles.
The new warehouse is located in Køge, just 10 minutes from the present site and 30 minutes from Copenhagen. The choice of Køge is a strategic one, allowing overland access to various Nordic markets, and proximity to our healthcare clients.
This new facility will increase global storage capacities, in particular increasing the capacity of cold and ADR/controlled drug storage by a factor of 4. The move will help Movianto to support its clients’ future growth, allowing the company to offer services even better adapted to the changing requirements of their customers. The delivery of the building is expected in Q3 of this year.
“Our quality team will monitor the development of the new site to ensure full compliance with the highest standards,” says Marina Steensen. “We appreciate the cooperation with Logicenters to design and define Movianto’s new facility. With their flexibility and proven track record, we are confident that the processes of construction, certification, and moving will be very smooth. We are making the continuity of our operations and business our top priority in this project.”
Thomas Creuzberger, CEO at Movianto, adds, “This is the second project of this nature announced in 2022, but it is not the last. We are happy to be able to offer a high quality and reliable healthcare distribution solution in the Nordics to all our clients across Europe. This phase of our global expansion project will take that solution to the next level.
