Customer

Fedefarma, a leading pharmaceutical distribution cooperative in Catalonia and among the Top 3 of the Valencian Community, has 8 automated logistics centres that operate 365 days a year and make up to 4 deliveries a day via more than 600 routes. They work with up to 70,000 catalogued references, and 36,000 in stock.

Need

Thanks to the growth experienced by Fedefarma in the last ten years, the pharmaceutical distributor has prepared its logistics for the expected ongoing expansion. The cooperative has built a new warehouse in Palau-Solità i Plegamans (Barcelona) to act as the regulating centre of the 7 warehouses it currently has, and this way continue to improve quality indices to provide perfect order servicing for partner pharmacies.

Solution

In designing this warehouse, Fedefarma particularly emphasised quality and being able to offer partner pharmacies added value services, such as to facilitate pharmacy offices placing orders online. The cooperative’s new centre is a whole new logistics challenge conceived to respond to the entire medicine value chain.

 

To achieve this, on a built-up logistics surface of 19,400 m2, POLYPAL installed:

 

Adjustable pallet racking:

  • Storage capacity: 4,146 pallets
  • Load unit: EURO pallet of 800 x 1,200 mm
  • Maximum load: 1,000 kg/unit
  • Safety and protections:
  1. Mesh panel enclosures to prevent goods from falling onto adjoining pedestrian and work zones.
  2. Frame barriers on the exposed ends of shelf alignments and evacuation tunnel frames

 

Live storage:

  • Storage capacity: 2,820 boxes
  • Load unit: boxes of 400x220x590 mm
  • Maximum load: 10 kg/unit

Picking shelves:

  • Storage capacity: 5,700 boxes
  • Load unit: boxes of 400x800x500 mm
  • Maximum load: 30 kg/unit

“We have a long history of working with POLYPAL, a known and reliable player in the market of storage systems. They have also added value by offering to paint the racks in our corporate colours. It looks fantastic.”
