Healthcare & Cosmetics

Innovative intralogistics solutions for the Healthcare and Cosmetics sector

Sensitive products, comprehensive documentation and complex requirements create extremely demanding intralogistics situations for manufacturers and distributors of healthcare and cosmetics products. Continually decreasing storage stocks demand more frequent deliveries with smaller quantities. The customer’s expectations and requirements such as rapid delivery, despite orders placed at short notice, increase the demands on the logistics chain.

Gentle handling of the products frequently plays a key role in the cosmetics sector. Scratches or damage to the packaging must be prevented at all costs. Both seasonal peaks, increasing omni-channel marketing, need to be handled effectively. In contrast, the healthcare sector requires an exceptional level of picking during peak times in combination with absolute reliability.
