Spare parts logistics with value added services from a single source
– Takeover of the distribution logistics of 16,000 spare parts including demand-oriented KIT management for the health care sector.
Since July 2018, Grieshaber Logistics Group AG has been providing logistics services and value added services for a global provider of system solutions for cleaning, disinfection and sterilisation in the medical and life science sectors. The customers to be supplied range from globally active pharmaceutical manufacturers to regional hospitals and large medical practices. In addition to a detailed review of the processes to be implemented, the main focus was on the development of a transfer plan from the previous warehouse location to the warehouse of Grieshaber Logistics Group AG in Bad Säckingen.
Within the scope of the implementation, the piecewise transfer of more than 16,000 very heterogeneous spare parts, which are stored in shelving racks, high-bay racks, hazardous material storage and block storage, was carried out. The services to be provided by Grieshaber can be found in the storage of articles and KITs, fine order picking and the distribution of parcel and pallet shipments. In addition, the creation of KITs is also part of the scope of services, as are customs clearance activities for export deliveries. A particular challenge is the management of the very high number of articles and the very heterogeneous article spectrum (from small screws to a complete disinfection chamber).
Already generated added values are, among other things, the increase of the article availability as well as an increase of the delivery performance in the supply of technicians, pharmaceutical producers and hospitals. Based on the close partnership and an interactive exchange, a common growth and a positive further development could be achieved over the last years.
