Bay Area Research Logistics (BARL) continues to strive to deliver the best services to their clients and their new facility demonstrates just that.
BARL’s goal is always to think big and aim high – imagine doubling efficiency, distribution reach and output by expanding the facilities! Only 15 minutes away from the previous ~9000 ft2 facility, the new and improved ~20,000 ft2 location is centrally located close to major transportation hubs. Located in Hamilton, Ontario allows them to reach over 150 million people within a 1-Day drive radius of 800 km. The new facility will maintain distribution both locally and to over 35 countries around the world.
For over 16 years, BARL’s diverse and talented team has provided specialized services: logistical design, packaging of materials, execution of clinical trial supply chains, Customers have trusted BARL to get the job done correctly, and a substantial effort has been made to increase the quantity and quality of services provided to customers.
The development of the new facility has allowed for improvements to storage and packaging capacity, while also improving the quality standard of BARL’s services. Some of the facility was allocated to a larger, more efficient storage space utilizing rack storage to achieve an increase of over 25% in warehousing capacity (including staging, shipping and receiving).
For cold chain products, storage capacity for temperatures of 2-8°C has been increased by more than 40%. Space has also been allocated for the freezer farm; composed of multiple units that keep temperatures ranging from -20°C to -70°C/-80°C.
The secondary packaging area has also doubled in size, providing the flexibility to expand for additional capabilities. This also translates to a higher output capacity. This area is gaining a formal gowning area, dedicated equipment cleaning space, and airlock entrances to prevent contamination from outside sources, as well as retaining their ISO Class 8 Clean Room. BARL’s production quality standards continue to improve, giving customers the peace of mind that their products are handled with the utmost care.
Customers can be confident that the new additions and improvements will maintain the quality of service they have come to expect and rely upon. For any current and future logistic needs, count on BARL to get the job done.
