GEODIS launches new pharma cross dock facility in Rodgau


In November, the global logistics service provider GEODIS officially put a new 700 square meter 
temperature-controlled location, with an integrated cooling area in Rodgau, into operation. With 
this opening, GEODIS is pursuing its strategy of expanding and strengthening its global 
pharmaceutical network.



With a temperature-controlled warehouse between 15 and 25 °C and the additional cooling area with a temperature 
range between 2 and 8 °C, the new Pharma Cross Dock offers optimal conditions for the handling and interim 
storage of pharmaceutical products. The new facility ensures continuous cooling along the entire transport and 
logistics chain. The direct connection to the A45 motorway and the proximity to Frankfurt Airport ensure good 

The transportation of vaccines and pharmaceuticals requires fast handling and a continuously temperaturecontrolled environment. In addition to the CEIV certification1 of the Frankfurt site, Rodgau offers GDP-compliant 
solutions for quality assurance in pharmaceutical distribution and is therefore an integral part of the global expansion 
to strengthen the 27 CEIV-certified air freight locations. 

"In addition to the strategic acquisition of transport specialist trans-o-flex at the beginning of the year, Rodgau is 
now our first Pharma Cross Dock in Germany to go into active operation. With this investment, we are creating an 
important basis for our further positioning in the German market, which is considered Europe’s most important 
exporter of pharmaceuticals, and is thus significantly strengthening our portfolio for sensitive and fast air freight in 
pharmaceutical logistics," says Antje Lochmann, Managing Director Germany.

1CEIV Pharma Certification is a globally consistent and recognized pharmaceutical product handling certification to 
ensure the international and national compliance to safeguard product integrity while addressing specific air cargo
