Opening of Kazo Packaging Center Grows Bushu Pharma’s “Gateway to Asia” SCM Service

  • News

Bushu Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (hereinafter “Bushu Pharma”) is pleased to announce the opening of the Kazo Packaging Center, which will serve as a new base for the inspection, labeling, packaging, and storage of pharmaceuticals. The opening ceremony of the center – which sits within the Kazo Pharmaceutical Joint Distribution Center of Chuo Unyu Co. – was held on October 20, 2021.

The center features 634 pallets of refrigerated warehousing (2 to 8°C) space and additional room-temperature warehousing (1 to 30°C) with enough space and equipment to store and manage 648 pallets. There is a packaging area of approximately 334 m2 in the refrigerated packaging area (inspection and secondary packaging) and approximately 1,500 m2 in the room-temperature packaging area (inspection and secondary packaging). Going forward, utilizing this facility and Chuo Unyu’s advanced logistics technology and know-how, we will further increase the inspection, labelling, and packaging capacity and efficiency of our operations, resulting in overall improved logistics efficiency.

Kazo Packaging Center will serve as an important part of our Gateway to Asia service, whereby we serve as an Asian hub allowing global pharmaceutical companies to import bulk drug formulations into Japan for quality inspection, final packaging, and distribution to Japan and other Asian countries.

Bushu Pharma will continue to work with Chuo Unyu to build an optimal structure that will allow us to respond appropriately to changes in the market and to meet the needs of our customers in a timely manner.
