Continued growth forced a major Scotland-based pharmaceutical company to re-evaluate its pharmaceutical warehousing capacity requirements and business processing priorities.
The client's immediate response was to outsource the project to KC Group Shipping. A rapid solution was key as the client's current facility was over-stacked resulting in product mis-picks and unnecessary product handling.
The client required a reliable logistics partner who could offer storage and warehousing facilities with the necessary security and quality certificates for high value pharmaceutical product storage.
It was imperative that the facility offered one central temperature and humidity controlled storage room with an additional smaller ambient storage area.
The immediate challenge was to locate and secure state-of-the-art temperature-controlled expandable warehousing facilities with sophisticated equipment, control of distribution growth and compliance with new industry regulatory mandates.
Twenty four days after initial instruction was received from our client, KC Group Shipping negotiated favourable lease terms covering a 30,000 square foot, pharmaceutical-compliant warehouse capable of almost immediate operation.
KC Group Shipping delivered an innovative, tailored and integrated approach. This provided a high quality combination of strategically located warehousing facilities with state-of-the-art technology and security with direct interface to the clients SAP operating system.
In addition, KC Group Shipping provided the client's with Standard Operating Procedures and Key Performance Indicators which provided an overview of all current warehouse handling and distribution procedures and delivered improved time management together with commercial saving.
All processes where overseen by our dedicated consultancy division under ISO standards.
The response time and implementation of the bespoke system provided the pharmaceutical company with a state-of-the-art distribution facility and platform to distribute the high value product globally within their high pace industry.
