DHL and Fresenius Kabi Australia form new partnership

DHL has teamed up with major medical global manufacturer Fresenius Kabi to run its in-demand requirements

DHL Supply Chain has been appointed by Fresenius Kabi Australia to manage its growing warehouse and logistics requirements in Australia.

The major global manufacturer of essential lifesaving products for critically and chronically ill patients has signed a five-year contract with DHL for storage, inbound and outbound functions that were previously managed in-house.

DHL is managing the distribution of Fresenius Kabi Australia’s product line of more than 400 products from its healthcare-grade facility at Horningsea Park. A dedicated team is set to be responsible for receiving, storing and dispatching Fresenius Kabi’s products in Australia.

Established in 2020, DHL’s Horningsea Park facility is Australia’s first carbon-neutral warehouse. It is a dedicated facility for storing pharmaceuticals, medical devices, vaccines, animal health, diagnostics and consumer health products.

The 35,000 square metre site also has a 30,000-pallet capacity to manage future growth for customers.

DHL supply chain Australia CEO Steve Thompsett says he’s pleased to fulfill Fresenius Kabi Australia’s 3PL needs.

“Fresenius Kabi has a significant range of products that are used to save lives and help to improve the health of Australians and we’re proud to be trusted with their logistics needs,” Thompsett says.

“We’re confident that we will deliver on Fresenius Kabi Australia’s quality requirements at our state-of-the-art healthcare-grade Horningsea Park facility, which meets all global requirements for storing life sciences and healthcare products.

“The Horningsea Park facility also features a five-star Green Star rating to help our customers fulfill their sustainability requirements.”

With the corporate mission of ‘caring for life’, Fresenius Kabi puts essential medicines and technologies in the hands of people who help patients and find the best answers to their challenges.

“DHL is the ideal partner to help us achieve our mission in Australia by providing state of the art logistic and distribution services to provide our products to our customers in a more efficient way,” Fresenius Kabi regional senior vice-president Juan Villar says.

“In addition, moving to a carbon-neutral warehouse supports our commitment to leaving a planet worth living on for future generations.”
