Swiss logistics company Kuehne + Nagel has opened the largest pharma and healthcare warehouse in Slovenia, in a strategic location at Brnik, close to the country’s capital, Ljubljana.

The new facility will carry out the distribution of finished products worldwide and will be used for the storage and distribution of production materials for the pharmaceutical industry. While eco-friendly built and equipped, the distribution centre complies with the highest security standards and state-of-the-art technology to increase current operational capacities.

“The pharma and healthcare industry is among the most important growth drivers for Kuehne + Nagel,” said Gianfranco Sgro, member of the managing board of Kuehne + Nagel International, and responsible for contract logistics.

“Therefore, it is of strategic importance to further strengthen our integrated KN PharmaChain network. The cutting-edge facility in Brnik is a cornerstone in this ambition and enables Kuehne + Nagel to offer its unique pharma solutions to an extended customer base.”

With a global network of currently close to 200 certified operations, 600,000 sq m of industry dedicated warehousing space and a team of specially trained operators, KN PharmaChain addresses the need of pharma and healthcare customers for a standardised, reliable and compliant end-to-end logistics offering and at the same time it strengthens its presence in the Slovenian market, with an enhanced regional footprint.
