This excerpt taken from the SHPGY 10-K filed Mar 1, 2006.


Shire’s US distribution center, which includes a large vault to house DEA-regulated Schedule II products, is located in Kentucky. From there, the Company distributes its products to all the wholesale distribution centers and the three major warehousing pharmacy chains that stock Schedule II drugs in the US, providing access to nearly all pharmacies in the US.

Physical distribution in the UK, Spain, Italy, France, Germany and the Republic of Ireland is contracted out to third parties and agency or distribution agreements are in place for other export territories where Shire does not have local operations.
