MNX Global Logistics has opened a dedicated supply chain and logistics hub just outside Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam to meet increased demand for its services.
The facility with validated temperature-controlled supply chain capabilities will serve as the operations and warehousing hub for the US firm's life sciences and medical device customers across Europe.

The capacity of the new HACCP and GDP compliant facility exceeds 1,300m2 with the option to expand by an additional 1,700m2. It has been designed to exceed the highest standards in the handling and movement of critical biopharmaceutical, radiopharmaceutical and medical device shipments.
