Pharmaceutical product storage requires the highest standards and places extreme demands on hygiene and process reliability. Quality assurance plays a central role because every mistake has a direct impact on a consumer’s health.

Logistics costs are increasingly becoming a focus of corporate planning. Added to this are the increasing expectations of customers with regards to the ability to deliver.

Automation makes it possible to achieve error-free workflows and complete traceability back to the origin of every batch. Automated storage and order picking also ensures lower costs, maximum use of space, optimal climatic conditions, and absolute cleanliness.
