FM Logistic has expanded its pharmaceutical logistics platform at Błonie in Poland to increase its capacity to handle products from Polpharma, the largest Polish manufacturer of pharmaceuticals.
The expansion added 7,800 sqm of warehousing space to support Polpharma’s exports as well as domestic distribution. Polpharma has been a customer of FM Logistic’s since 2016. Its pharmaceutical wholesaler is based at the Błonie facility. About 35,000 pallet locations are occupied with its products.
The Błonie warehouse and distribution centre now offers 85,000 sqm of warehousing space, including 57,000 sqm of temperature-controlled space for pharmaceutical products. This makes it one of the largest distribution centres for the pharmaceutical sector in Central Europe.
“We serve close to 30 pharma manufacturers in Błonie and make daily deliveries of pharma products to about 900 recipients, such as hospitals, pharmacies and pharmaceutical wholesalers,” said Paweł Janicki, Senior Business Development Director, pharmaceutical sector, FM Logistic.
FM Logistic obtained Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification for operations at the Blonie facility in 2020. This is an international quality standard for the distribution of pharmaceuticals.
The warehouse in Błonie is now completed and fully occupied. FM Logistic is planning to serve new pharmaceutical clients from its logistics facility in Wiskitki, between Łódź and Warsaw.
