TevaPharmaceutical Industries Ltd, the world’s largest producer of generic drugs, opened last week a new, US$100 million distribution center in Shoham, near Ben Gurion International Airport.
The new logistic center spreads over 19 acres, making it one of the worlds largest with advanced storage facilities and transportation of drugs and medical equipment.
Each building is 13 levels high and 400 meters long, with new state-of-the-art facilities designed to cut truck-loading time from an hour to just 10 minutes and save the company US$20 million each year (return of investment in 5 years).
350 trucks a day will carry the company's medical products to the nearby airport.
