Sentry Logistic Solutions has a new service offering designed to provide build-to-suit facilities and customized cold chain storage and logistics solutions for global pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical firms. These new services pair the benefits of outsourcing the storage and logistics functions with the advantages of fully customized facilities and compliant processes, according to the company.
"Sentry's build-to-suit solution is a logical extension of our expertise in the biopharmaceutical industry, proven project management skills, property development experience and ability to rapidly deploy specialized cold storage facilities," said Jennifer Marcum, Sentry's chief executive officer. "This service was developed in response to the growing demand from large pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms that want to harness the efficiencies of the outsourced cold storage and logistics model, but that have precise equipment, facility, storage, shipping and security requirements that most vendors cannot or will not accommodate."
The build-to-suit and customization options, according to the company, help pharma and biopharma firms reduce distribution costs, create new efficiencies, minimize operating costs and reduce time-to-market. The company plans to use its five acres of land located in a foreign trade zone area in Indianapolis, IN for future development and has options to purchase additional acreage.
The company's new offerings employ best-practice approaches for developing validated cold storage facilities that are compliant with all applicable industry standards and regulations. Special features can include segregated storage areas, dispensing suites, dedicated utilities and unique safety, security, electrical, structural and architectural design configurations.
