McKesson Corporation opened a new distribution center in Puyallup, WA, south of Seattle. Positioned on six acres, the 118,500-square-foot facility, with both distribution and office space, will service hospitals, health systems, community pharmacies and national retail pharmacies across the state of Washington.
The distribution center features the latest in supply chain technology and state-of-the-art automation, which is expected to make it easier for healthcare providers and their patients to receive life-saving medicines. The eco-friendly facility includes several green building features, including a high-efficiency reflective roof to reduce heat gain, an energy management system and LED lighting with motion sensors.
McKesson’s Cameron Roberts says, “We take our role in the pharmaceutical supply chain very seriously, and it is reinforced daily with a simple message: ‘It’s not just a package, it’s a patient.’ We are proud of this new, cutting-edge distribution center and the leaner and greener ways that we can support our customers and their patients.”
