DHL integrates the German logistics business of pharmaceuticals company STADA. Effective 1 June 2015, DHL Supply Chain will manage the logistics activities and sites of the pharmaceutical company in Florstadt and Bad Vilbel, near Frankfurt/Main. The deal does not comprise the disposal of the infrastructure, but the transfer of 155 employees working in STADA’s warehouse, anesthetics and export operations.

STADA intends to focus on its core business to strengthen its competitiveness. The outsourced logistics activities will also help STADA to save costs. Board member Dr. Matthias Wiedenfels, responsible for corporate development and central services at STADA, explains: “We are pleased to have found a professional and globally operating partner in DHL, which shares our quality standards and provides assurance for the sites in question.”
