Postnord TPL AB, a leading provider of communication and logistics solutions in Scandinavia, and Apotek Hjärtat AB, opted for SSI SCHAEFER to provide the intralogistics for their central pharmaceutical logistics center in Norrköping, Sweden. The project includes material flow planning and a logistics concept, as well as equipping different warehouse areas with state-of-the-art automated systems, corresponding picking strategies and comprehensive software support. The tailor-made solution has also been designed for picking e-commerce orders.
Delicate products, complete traceability and complex environments place high demands on the intralogistics in the field of Healthcare & Cosmetics. Postnord TPL AB, a Postnord subsidiary, prepares for the future with SSI SCHAEFER. From Norrköping, the logistics provider handles the distribution of pharmaceutical products for Apotek Hjärtat AB and supplies to 390 pharmacies throughout Sweden. With a market share of 30%, Apotek Hjärtat AB is the second largest provider on the Swedish pharmacy market. The extensive process automation in the new pharmaceutical logistics center will enable Postnord TPL AB to reduce the production costs per order line and increase the service level to strengthen the market position of Apotek Hjärtat AB.
To satisfy these requirements, SSI SCHAEFER implements a solution for a turnkey system with efficient automation systems and state-of-the-art technologies including the automatic picking system A-Frame, the one-level shuttle system Cuby and the Schäfer Carousel System. Warehouse management and coordinated process control of order handling is realized by the proven, efficient logistics software WAMAS® by SSI SCHAEFER, which will be implemented at Postnord TPL AB in the current release.
The flexible, ultra-modern intralogistics solution by SSI SCHAEFER will make Postnord TPL AB fit for the future. The system concept also takes into consideration the expected future order growth and is especially designed to fulfill the increasing volume of picking e-commerce orders.
