In Koge, our Danish subsidiary Nomeco is currently building the largest and most advanced logistics centre for pharmaceutical products in Northern Europe. The ground-breaking ceremony for Project ONE took place on 4 November 2016.
ONE impresses through its many superlatives: a 30-metre-high logistics centre, the size of three football stadiums, is being developed on a building site to the south of Copenhagen that covers 100,000 square metres. The fully automated warehouse has space for over 50,000 Euro pallets.
The new construction is Nomeco’s response to the increasing size of shipping units transported at any one time in Northern Europe. The location is also especially appropriate for this purpose – and will be even better when the tunnel under the Fehmarn Belt is complete, because deliveries can then be made directly from Koge to the whole of Northern Europe.
“Important considerations during the construction of this logistics centre are safety, quality, and efficiency. This will enable us to further reduce the risk of counterfeit pharmaceuticals in the supply chain and make medicines rapidly available to patients,” says Henrik Kaastrup, Managing Director of Nomeco.
Aside from the warehouse, the new head office of Nomeco HealthCare Logistics, the pre-wholesale division of Nomeco, will also be built at the site. In this way, all customers can receive the best support from one location, and Nomeco will be able to offer extensive pre-wholesale services for national and international customers in the pharmaceutical industry.
