AGV to open new foot and mouth disease vaccine distribution center
AGV Logistica, the main distributor of foot and mouth disease vaccines in Brazil, is to open a new R$85m ($48m) distribution center next month. The new facility will be bigger, with a surface area of 58,000 sq m, and a specific section to store FMD vaccines. The facility will include a center that stamps the vaccine packaging with a hologram to help monitor the product during the transportation process. Investment firm Bracor Investimentos Imobiliarios helped to raise the money needed for the new center, in Vinhedo, in the state of Sao Paulo.
