No other industry comes close when it comes to regulatory oversight and procedures, and rightfully so. In the pharmaceutical industry whether it’s manufacturing or pharmacy retail, patient safety is the number one priority.

This case study takes a deep dive into a leading pharmacy retail chain that needed to meet new regulatory guidelines. Faced with low unemployment rates, this drug store chain opted to build a complete greenfield facility to meet order accuracy, handle warehouse picking, and maintain secure storage for controlled substances. This type of warehouse automation takes the guesswork out of material handling processes and puts safety and profits at the forefront.

A Holistic Automated Warehouse Solution with Complete Order Verification

Warehouse automation can solve order accuracy and implement for tracking processes. However, a warehouse automation can also lower costs by saving on labor. Automated picking can be used to either supplement labor during peak season volume or replace it with solutions like robotic picking or A-Frame picking for fast movers. 

Prescription drugs are manufactured using raw materials that are found throughout the world. These ingredients must be tracked throughout the supply chain, manufacturing process, and finally, the distribution and fulfillment of products. The later, has now seen new regulatory procedures within the United States and certain countries within the E.U. also follow strict guidelines. Given the fact that pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution happen at a global level, these regulatory guidelines must be implemented.
