PHARMACEUTICAL LABORATORY - Scaling of a storage platform for dermo-cosmetic products and medicines

PHARMACEUTICAL LABORATORY

Scaling of a storage platform for dermo-cosmetic products and medicines


CONTEXT

  • Pharmaceutical laboratory producing and distributing medicines and dermo-cosmetic products (including aerosols)
  • Central storage platform: More than 200,000 complete pallets received per year AND average inventory of 55,000 pallets
  • Distribution: France, Europe and Overseas; in complete pallets, packages and CU

GOALS

  • Transfer of inventory to a new platform so that an annual increase in volume of greater than 4% can be accommodated
  • Definition of an optimal, long-lasting solution

KEY LEVERS

  • Rational location of the building on the basis of the barycentre and land factors
  • Simulations of the scaling and layout of the building
  • Optimisation of flows, infrastructures and of the organisation
  • Integration of solutions to optimise storage capacity and automate conveyance
