Article Summary:

Atlanta-based global freight transportation and logistics services provider UPS recently announced that its UPS Healthcare subsidiary is gearing up for an expansion in Ireland, with what it called a Dublin-based “first of its kind healthcare facility” set to open in late 2023.

UPS said that this new facility will be comprised of 6,000 square-meters (64,583 square-feet) of healthcare-dedicated space to connect Ireland’s growing pharmaceutical and medical technology industries to UPS’s smart global logistics network, serving customers in more than 220 countries and territories.

What’s more, the company added that this new facility will: support Ireland’s pharmaceutical and medical device industries in delivering next generation biologics, critical vaccines and vital healthcare equipment to patients around the world; and create 30 jobs initially, and the investment demonstrates UPS commitment to the Irish market and support for its long-term export growth.

And in citing data from Allied Market Research, UPS explained that 80% of pharmaceutical drugs in the European Union require cold-chain logistical support and temperature-controlled transportation, with more than 50% of all new drugs in the global pharmaceutical pipeline being biomedical drugs, like vaccines, that tend to be temperature-sensitive.
