trans-o-flex Logistik-Service with a new location for pharmaceutical contract logistics
Logistic centre in Alzenau creates 80 new jobs - Central location in Germany and close proximity to Frankfurt Airport as an ideal basis for the implementation of international distribution concepts
From the logistic centre with its direct connection to the A 45 motorway, it is only a 30-minute drive to Frankfurt Airport. In addition to this, the new building is situated directly next to the transhipment point of trans-o-flex's Alzenau-based system partner. Thus, even those shipments that reach the transition from the warehouse to the national and international road network for combi-freight (parcels and pallets) very late can be delivered throughout Germany on the subsequent day. In addition to this, the cross-docking procedure also makes it possible to integrate international air-freight shipments in the processes.
Fully suitable for the pharmaceutical industry: compatible with all of the GMP standards
The construction of the new warehouse is the result of a co-operation with the international real-estate developer Panattoni Europe on a 20,000-m² large property with additional extension areas. The first stage includes the construction of a 10,000-m² high-bay warehouse with 13,500 storing positions and 11,000 lower-shelf spaces, which, in order to increase the plant's efficiency and to facilitate the picking and packing, have partly been installed on a mezzanine floor in the 10-m high hall.
In order to meet all of the required GMP standards applicable in the pharmaceutical industry, trans-o-flex will invest approximately € 2 million in the interior work alone. For example, the logistic centre will be fully air-conditioned and shall also have temperature control and monitoring systems to document compliance with the requested temperature range and pest control standards.
In addition to fast and reliable shipment processes using a conveying and picking & packing unit, security also played an important part in the design: there will not only be a burglar alarm system with connection to a security service team but also a camera-surveillance system to monitor and control access via a specific turnstile.
trans-o-flex Logistik-Service already operates its own logistic centres in Kerpen and Frechen near Köln, as well as in Weinheim, Heidelberg and Roth near Nuremberg. This year saw the opening of another company-owned centre In Hamburg. The range of trans-o-flex Logistik-Service's offer includes product-specific storage, inventory management, packaging management, order management, picking, packing, shipment, returns management, IT services, technical services, trade fair services and customs clearance for import and export.
