Developing State of The Art Technologies
Driving our Supply Chain
This new facility offers some 50,000sq ft of modern offices over two three storey blocks, 180,000 sq. ft of temperature controlled warehousing (air conditioned), 10,000 pallet spaces for ambient storage, in excess of 300 cold storage pallet spaces, and also increased controlled drug storage up to 200 pallet spaces. It is a state of the art storage, warehousing and office facility, specialised to meet the exacting needs of the pharmaceutical industry.
The warehouse has a unique A frame system where the fastest-moving stock is replenished at lightning speed and the system then knows how many totes of a product it holds and it automatically drops these fast-movers on to the conveyor which delivers the order into the tote for dispatch. The warehouse also operates a ‘pick by light’ technology which tells the warehouse team where the product is located so they can quickly pick the items and drop it in the appropriate bucket.

Our IT and Operations teams are constantly innovating to find new ways to meet operational challenges. In 2015, we will implement a sophisticated dashboard that will enable our Business Development team and our customers to review their account in full with real time information. This dashboard will also display the key performance indicators that will clearly show the service Uniphar is delivering to its customers.
