On April 20, as part of its investment program to develop warehousing, PROTEK Group commissioned a new warehouse facility, Transservice-2.
The new facility is the second operating facility of the Transservice Logistics Park in the near-Moscow Pushkino (14 kilometers down the Yaroslavskoye Highway). The opening of the new 23 thousand square meter terminal designed for 42 thousand pallet positions increased the total area of the Transservice Logistics Park to 80 thousand square meters. Warehouse facilities occupy 60 thousand square meters of the Park's space and accommodate 100 thousand pallet positions.
According to the design documentation, in 2020 the Transservice Logistics Park will consolidate six warehouse terminals.
By this time, the total area of the Transservice Logistics Pharmpark will have reached 160 thousand square meters to contain warehouses with 250 thousand pallet positions.
The Logistics Park's facilities qualify as A+ class and are equipped to meet the GDP and GSP standards. The high quality of storage is ensured by the receipt control and the availability of four storage modes: 15-25 0C, 8-15 0C, 2-8 0C and up to minus 30 0C.
The new Logistics Park will be fully integrated with the infrastructure of the CV PROTEK distributor company, which will enable it to act as a 4Pl operator and render a comprehensive service ranging from the storage of manufacturers' goods through the delivery of goods to pharmacies and including attendance to custom formalities, shipments to the distributor and operations under direct contracts with pharmacy chains. Thus, the site in Pushkino integrates all the elements of the pharmaceutical products movement, i.e. the production, distribution and retail, thus increasing the effectiveness of their synergies and reducing the costs of each participant in the process.
“Given the realities of the day, the growing volume of services provided by the distribution segment (Transservice and CV PROTEK) and the interest in the services manifested by manufacturers and pharmacy chains, we decided to invest in additional storage capacities. The space of the new terminals and the level of services rendered will meet the highest requirements of the customers and the market”, explains PROTEK president Vadim Muzyaev.
