The UK is home to leading global pharmaceutical companies, and numerous small and medium-sized biopharmaceutical firms, as well as world-class universities/research institutions, and has consequently become a major development and manufacturing base for pharmaceuticals.

An air-conditioned facility has been recently installed in the NEUK warehouse, offering temperature-controlled storage in three ranges: frozen (-18 ˚C), refrigerated (2–8 ˚C), and room-temperature (15–25 ˚C).

NEUK will be combining temporary storage operations using this facility with Nippon Express's temperature-controlled international transport services to meet the logistics needs of customers in the pharmaceutical industry.
