Medicines Agency gives go-ahead for new Pfizer logistic concept in Denmark

Customised solution: the trans-o-flex Logistics Group supplies all Danish hospitals and wholesalers within 24 hours after collecting the goods in Germany

trans-o-flex Logistik-Service GmbH, a company of the trans-o-flex Logistics Group, has developed a new concept for the American pharmaceutical company Pfizer with respect to the distribution of Pfizer products in Denmark. The implementation of the concept has already been successfully initiated. As an important prerequisite, the Danish Medicines Agency had to authorise 3D Logistik A/S in Kolding, trans-o-flex's partner in this project, to collect and distribute pharmaceutical products. Danish law does not permit the distribution of pharmaceutical products without licence. On the contrary: with respect to importing pharmaceuticals, it is legally prescribed that each product of a shipment is compared with the relevant release certificates at batch level.

This so-called "entry check", which is carried out every morning in Kolding, is backed by the Pfizer warehouse management system that has been installed on site. Once the entry check has led to a positive outcome, the procedure to ensure the nation-wide and, thus, same-day delivery of the shipments in Denmark is immediately initiated. In order to control and document all shipment processes, the Danish logistics partner has been connected to the trans-o-flex operating core system. This increases the transparency and facilitates the shipment tracking procedure because all steps during the entire transport chain are carried out by one and the same IT system. trans-o-flex collects the shipments in Pfizer's distribution centre in Karlsruhe, which is also used to supply the markets in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands.

In the past, Pfizer had based its Denmark activities on a domestic solution with a local logistic company. However, in order to centralise the warehouse logistics in Karlsruhe, they looked for a partner who, despite and in compliance with the strict Danish laws and provisions, was able to deliver the shipments all over Denmark on the next working day. Here was where trans-o-flex, with an individual logistic solution as well as its specific pharmaceutical know-how and established distribution structures, could score. In co-operation with Pfizer's logistics managers, the customised distribution solution for Denmark was developed and implemented within just twelve weeks. "We have already been contacted by other pharmaceutical customers", says Kai Schmuck, Director Sales & Marketing of trans-o-flex, who is also responsible for trans-o-flex Logistik-Service GmbH. "The market has shown great interest in our ability to supply all Danish hospitals and pharmaceutical wholesalers within 24 hours after collecting the goods in Germany."
