Janssen has opened a new distribution centre in Belgium this week, creating a major new European hub for the firm. The European distribution centre centralises the activities of 15 logistics centres, enabling medicines from the different European production sites to be shipped directly to a single site. Tom Heyman, chief executive of Janssen Pharmaceutica, said: “The European distribution centre in La Louvière will enable us to more efficiently deliver medicines that respond to the real needs of patients. Thanks to the new structure, some of the logistical burden and administrative costs that hospitals are faced with will also disappear.
