A key member of our Association opened the most modern pharmaceutical logistics facility in Central and Eastern Europe

A future-proof, fully automated high-bay warehouse service has been added to Hungaropharma's 3PL+ service portfolio.

The market-leading pharmaceutical wholesaler's Third-Party Logistics scheme provides manufacturers and distributors of pharmaceutical products with more than 20,000 pallets of temperature-controlled storage spaces and associated logistics, administration, supply chain, quality assurance, financial and other professional advisory solutions, providing a comprehensive logistics and distribution network with nationwide coverage.

The nearly HUF 11 billion investment was built in 2 phases, and with the new automated high-bay warehouse and a facility with a large capacity of refrigerated warehouses for pharmaceutical logistics, Hungary's leading pharmaceutical wholesaler now provides a full range of logistics services on 18,500 m2.

"Today, at our opening ceremony, I can say with a clear heart that we are handing over an investment of national economic importance", emphasized Dr Antal Feller, CEO of Hungaropharma Zrt.

The third level of Hungaropharma's Budapest Logistics Centre is not only suitable for the logistics of the own stocks of the company and those of his manufacturer partners, but also for the storage of community stocks in the framework of possible crisis cooperation.

The ceremony was also attended by Mihály Varga, Minister of Finance. "The crises of recent years have shown that the sovereignty of economic policy and the strengthening of self-sufficiency play a key role in a successful recovery", Mihály Varga said. The Minister of Finance stressed that despite the pandemic and the war crisis, the government has managed to maintain high employment, and as a result the Hungarian economy is expected to achieve one of the highest growth rates in the region next year.

Dr Cecília Müller National Chief Medical Officer, Dr Judit Bidló, Deputy State Secretary for the Professional Management of Health Care, and Róbert Antal D. Kovács, Mayor of Budapest Kőbánya district, also gave speeches at the celebration of Hungarian pharmaceutical logistics.

One of Hungaropharma Zrt.'s priorities is to develop its existing systems in such a way that the company's ecological footprint is significantly reduced. The BLK III high-bay warehouse and the new service have been developed with this in mind: sustainable operation is ensured by, among other things, the energy recovery properties of the devices, an innovative high-capacity heat pump solution and the use of solar panels.
