Storage and distribution of cold chain and ambient temperature products
Development of two-facility distribution strategy

Global biopharmaceutical company Bristol-Myers Squibb has chosen DHL's supply chain unit in North America as the third-party logistics provider to handle its U.S. distribution. As part of the contract, DHL has agreed to purchase the existing Bristol-Myers Squibb distribution centers in Mount Vernon, Indiana, and will take over operations in the second quarter of this year.

DHL will provide logistics operations and finished goods distribution services including storage and distribution of cold chain and ambient temperature products, clinical trials, samples and exports. Shortly after it takes over operations in Mount Vernon, DHL will open and manage a second distribution center on its Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, campus for Bristol-Myers Squibb. This two-facility distribution strategy will ensure best-in-class service to Bristol-Myers Squibb and support the company in bringing its medicines to patients in need.

DHL's expertise was crucial
Under DHL's ownership and management of the Mount Vernon site, Bristol-Myers Squibb will remain a primary customer served at the facility, with the opportunity to add additional DHL customers in the future to create a shared-use pharmaceutical distribution site.

"DHL's expertise in both the life sciences sector and real estate was crucial in creating the right solution for Bristol-Myers Squibb. We are proud to work with such a leading biopharmaceutical company and share its commitment to delivering innovative medicines that help patients prevail over diseases", says Joe Puleo, Vice President Business Development at DHL's supply chain unit in North America.
