We support Hologic with healthcare logistics
Hologic specialises in products to detect, diagnose and treat illnesses and other health issues, with a strong focus on women's health.
DSV has worked with Hologic since 2001 to help them meet the high standards for handling in the pharmaceutical industry.
Hologic’s testing kits for gynaecology and cancer need constant temperature control, which DSV’s recently extended state-of-the-art warehouse in Ghent, Belgium can provide. The facility serves as the most important warehouse and distribution centre for Hologic globally, managing the handling, ambient temperature and cold chain storage, as well as labelling and repacking of these sensitive products. The new facility is fully temperature-controlled, which ensures that the cold chain for the sensitive products is never broken.
Healthcare products need extra care
The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most heavily regulated, and the supply chains of medicines and medical equipment are frequently subject to sensitive temperature control. In the case of Hologic’s products, the biggest challenge is distribution overseas to Asia and Africa; over such distances, proper packaging and handling are crucial. Having to destroy products because the temperature conditions have not been met is unacceptable.
DSV knows our business, understands our priorities and invests in this cooperation. We have reached the point where we have a very strong foundation and trust in each other – sometimes it feels like we are one big company working together.
