DHL Supply Chain expands Life Sciences and Healthcare Campus in Florstadt 17 August 2022

Existing capacities at the multi-user campus increases by 32,000 m2

DHL Supply Chain has further expanded its Life Sciences & Healthcare (LSH) Campus in Florstadt near Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The new branch adds a third, considerably-sized logistics center (32,000 m2) to the multi-user campus specialising in pharmaceutical and medical products. The new centre is within walking distance of both the existing warehouse, which DHL has operated since 2015 for a leading pharmaceutical company, and a second site that opened in January 2018 and serves various prominent customers in the medical and healthcare sector.

The multi-user campus simultaneously offers space for various customers requiring efficient logistics in Germany, Europe or worldwide. DHL provides single-source solutions in Florstadt to suppliers of medical and pharmaceutical products - from customary storage and order picking through value added services such as kitting, labelling or sampling to highly complex and highly automated logistics solutions.

The site is registered in accordance with the German Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG). A capacity of 10,000 pallet locations has been established in one dedicated section of the facility. What’s more, different temperature-controlled zones - ambient, cooled and freezer areas for temperatures as low as minus 20 degrees Celsius - are available around the clock. Clean rooms can also be set up if requested by the customer.

The multi-user campus in Florstadt is located about 35 kilometres from the heart of the Frankfurt Rhine-Main economic region and offers ideal access to Frankfurt Airport, DHL's parcel and Express network, and rail and highway networks.

The launch of the new logistics centre represents a further important step on the road to climate-neutrality for DHL Supply Chain’s sites. The building was honoured with the Gold Standard of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). It features a 750 kWp photovoltaic system, heat pumps and a 320-square-metre solar air heating system that continuously supply the carbon-neutral warehouse with environmentally friendly energy and a controlled climate.

The campus in Florstadt also holds all major LSH certifications, such as GMP, GDP and ISO 13485, and keeps abreast of changing regulations.
