The new Philadelphia facility is designed to help distribute clinical trial supplies within all temperature ranges for clients with manufacturing or packaging facilities in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The new 8865-square-foot facility features a large 15 to 25 degrees Celsius controlled room temperature area, a 2 to 8 degrees C walk-in refrigerator and a -20 degrees C freezer. The rooms are equipped with a 24/7 temperature monitoring system, fully mapped and calibrated.
Mark Hembarsky, Marken's VP of Logistics for North America, said: "The facility has been built to Marken's exact specifications and will be operated under strict security with constant temperature controls. This new hub will operate like all Marken facilities, using Maestro for shipment bookings and tracking worldwide.”
