High-volume solution for pharmaceutical distribution
- The leading company in the pharmaceutical industry, Bidafarma, has relied on the Movik Solutions range from Ulma Hanlding Systems to optimise its operations.
- 3 key operations have been combined: full-pallet picking, picking of fast-moving SKUs and picking of medium and slow-moving SKUs.
- Movik Solutions is the Ulma Handling Systems range that meets less complex automation needs and can be a first step towards automation.
Bidafarma, a leading company in the sector of wholesale distribution of wide range medicines and top 100 in Spain, relies on ULMA Handling Systems' Movik Solutions range to optimise storage, replenishment and order picking systems especially for high-volume SKUs at its facilities in Madrid.
The project was designed to be flexible and combines three key operations: full pallet picking, picking of high turnover SKUs and picking of medium and low turnover SKUs. It also has the additional option of Batch Picking to optimise pallet movements. Everything is encompassed within the same system and managed by our U-mind WMS, a logistics software suite that works with operational information in conjunction with information on the life cycle of the installation.
The pallet warehouse can handle pallets of up to 1,000 kg, and heights of up to 2,200 mm, with the customer being able to choose the distribution that best suits him. Similarly, there are locations of lower heights to house the pallets that have been picked and thus free up space for whole pallets.
In this case, BIdafarma's facilities have a slave pallet supply system to ensure that the quality of the supplier's pallet does not affect operations, with the entire warehouse prepared so that all pallets can be assembled on the slave pallet.
Movik Solutions is the range of Ulma Handling Systems to respond to the challenges posed by current logistics in companies where a reduced level of automation is required. A scalable system, where you can add aisles and new workstations without having to make major changes and stops, practical and convenient to use, are some of the many attributes of this range that seeks to reduce the cost of access to the automation of your processes.
