The project is was presented today and was born from afar, at the instigation of the Region Tuscany that in 2015 decided to bring together in a single table a thirty local companies specialized in the production of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, supplements, diagnostics. In 2018 a memorandum of understanding was signed between the Ministry of The Economic Development, the Region, the infrastructures of the territory and the companies that followed the birth of the Network tuscany Pharma Valley and the selection and identification, over the years of the pandemic crisis, of the logistics providers to which to entrust the platform management from a physical, digital and distributive. The path, recently concluded, has led to the identification of four subjects: BCube for the management of the industrial logistics, Maersk for distribution by sea, DHL/Lufthansa for air and road distribution and Palladio-Pharma Partners for pharmaceutical workshop services.

In the new infrastructure, which will be built within the Guasticce pole, will be stored, processed, assembled (kitting), packaged (packaging) and distributed thousands of Pharmaceuticals. The facility will be built in about two years (the first stone will be laid by the end of the year and the work is expected to be completed around the first quarter of 2024) and will be born within an area of 125 thousand square meters, of which 60 thousand of temperature-controlled warehouses. The project will be modular, i.e. divided into lots and regime will be able to generate, between industrial logistics services, distribution and pharmaceutical workshop, a turnover of 40 millions of euros.

The investment, from the purchase of the property to the construction and subsequent preparation of the building, is valid around the €70 million and will be jointly supported by Bcube and the P3 Logistics Parks fund. The structure, which will have a maximum capacity of 120 thousand pallet places (65 thousand in the first phase) and areas with different controlled temperature depending on of the type of goods stored, aspires to be among the most Europe's largest unique storage and distribution platforms entirely dedicated to the life sciences.

The goal of the project is to create a all-in-one platform that manages all the activities that bring the product from the supplier to the final consumer and which are connected both with inbound services, or procurement and storage of the necessary materials production (inventory management, quality control and quantity, packaging of materials and replenishment of production lines), and with those of storage and distribution of finished products (such as packaging, the labelling of packaging and shipping).
