Bomi Group, a UPS company, today officially opened its new storage and distribution facility in Madrid following an 18-million-euro investment.

This new GMP and GDP-compliant logistics centre will cover an area of ​​27,578m² and have the capacity to hold 60,000 pallets, making it one of the largest warehouses in the European pharmaceutical sector and creating 150 highly skilled jobs.

Innovations in biologics, specialty pharmaceuticals and personalized medicine mean that 80% of pharma products in Europe now require temperature-controlled transportation.

The Madrid facility will meet this expanding need with various temperature-controlled storage solutions (-30 °C, +2+8 °C, +15+25 °C) and houses a state-of-the-art automated order-picking system with an expected error rate of less than 0.02%.

It is built to BREEAM certificates and is designed to the highest standards of sustainable operation.

“Our customers are in some of the fastest growing healthcare markets in the world, and their next-generation products require near-perfect service”, said Jordi Cusidó, Iberia Country Manager, Bomi Group.

“By providing end-to-end visibility of location and temperature, we can ensure patient-critical products are delivered where they need to be, at the right time, and the right temperature.”

Strategically located close to Madrid airport with road links to Barcelona and metropolitan Madrid, the new centre will be Bomi Group’s largest in Spain.
