Medcom-MP opens distribution centre at South Gate Industrial Park
Medical institutions across central Russia will have fast and efficient access to high-quality consumables, thanks to the new distribution centre totalling over 12,000 square meters.
Moscow, July 7, 2016. Radius Group, a leading developer of class-A warehouse and industrial real estate in Russia, has signed a long-term agreement with Medcom-MP, one of the largest distributors of medical supplies in Russia. Under the agreement, Medcom-MP will lease a modern warehouse area of more than 12,000 square meters at South Gate Industrial Park, near the town of Domodedovo just south of Moscow.
The warehouse has been built to meet the highest environmental and energy efficiency standards, having received BREEAM certification. Medcom-MP will be able to deploy advanced storage technologies, in compliance with the strictest sanitary requirements. The distribution centre will provide both private and state-funded medical institutions across central Russia with high-quality medical supplies. A convenient location at the intersection of two federal highways, combined with the essential infrastructure provided by the park, will help Medcom-MP significantly increase its logistics capabilities and optimise the delivery of its products to central regions of Russia.
Zakhar Valkov, Executive Director of Radius Group, said at the opening of the new distribution centre: “South Gate’s technical capacity in handling demanding logistics and storage demands, coupled with the park’s transport accessibility, provide the possibility for Radius and our partners to create a cluster of pharmaceutical and medical supply chain operations in the park. We thank Medcom-MP for placing their trust in Radius, and call upon all players on the pharmaceutical and medical market to join our initiative at South Gate.”
Alexei Supov, Managing Director of Medcom-MP, said: “There are substantial changes being implemented within Medcom-MP currently. We have introduced advanced standards of management and control of business processes. An objective need is now apparent to expand and modernize the supply chain, and to implement a long-term, multi-level logistics strategy. Radius Group has a good reputation as a reliable and professional partner, so we did not hesitate in the decision to base our distribution centre at South Gate.”
