"This underlines our position in European pharmaceutical logistics," said Phoenix group Board Member Frank Große-Natrop at the opening in Køge, Denmark.
After three years of construction, the healthcare logistics warehouse and distribution centre has been completed and impresses with many superlatives: The 25,000 square metre building is the size of three football fields and has a fully automated warehouse.
With a height of 30 meters, it offers space for more than 55,000 pallets.
Thanks to the high degree of automation, up to 1,000 pallets can be moved per hour.
Based on the order history, algorithms determine the best possible storage location for each product to ensure the highest efficiency in the inbound and outbound processes.
In recent years, the pharmaceutical industry has progressively outsourced logistics and distribution services and concentrated on its core business.
Nomeco is clearly feeling this demand as the number of clients and the handled volume has significantly increased in recent years.
The new distribution centre will make the company an even stronger outsourcing partner for the healthcare industry. ■
