Kuehne+Nagel Ireland has signed a multi-year contract with West Pharmaceuticals, a leading global manufacturer in the design and production of technologically advanced systems for the world’s top pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

Furthermore, Kuehne+Nagel Ireland has invested in a custom-built facility dedicated to the management of West Pharmaceutical’s contract logistics and road logistics services. The bespoke warehouse boasts racking for 30,000 pallets and has a full temperature controlled system to accommodate the unique requirements pertaining to West Pharmaceutical’s complex operation.

“When engaging with customers, we have a collaborative method, working in partnership to derive bespoke solutions that will work for our customer’s needs,” says Pamela Quinn, Managing Director at Kuehne+Nagel Ireland. “The set-up of complex supply chain solutions for a large company like West Pharmaceuticals can often take a long time. From the very beginning of our relationship with West Pharmaceuticals, we were committed to investing the time to understand their full logistical requirements. Our strength lies in our ability to offer innovative solutions to customers on a wide range of logistical services.”

Ireland is one of the largest exporters of pharmaceutical products globally and the commitment from Kuehne+Nagel Ireland stretches further than the dedicated West Pharmaceuticals facility, with a further nine locations in Ireland also devoted to the pharmaceutical and medtech industries.

Michael Moes, Vice President Global Supply Management of West Pharmaceuticals says that the customer-focussed approach of Kuehne+Nagel Ireland was an appealing strategy that offered many benefits. “West and Kuehne+Nagel have embarked on a critical and global partnership for both contract logistics and overland transportation. We’ve specifically engaged with Kuehne+Nagel Ireland’s leadership team and benefitted from their expertise and personalised customer-focused approach, while at the same time leveraging the breadth and depth of the global Kuehne+Nagel team – it’s a winning approach. Particularly, we worked closely with the Kuehne+Nagel Ireland team on the strategy to secure land, build and manage a dedicated warehouse, allowing our West Pharmaceuticals operations in Dublin to focus and deliver on its core technical and manufacturing competency,” confirms Michael Moes.
