Storage and Logistics Automation via an ASRS thrive in applications where high volumes of inventory move in-and-out of distribution operations. Storing with ASRS means accurate, real-time data is kept on inventory (eliminating need for physical inventory inspections) and providing direct access to pharmaceutical products at all times. ASRS increases throughput and eﬃciency, saves space and reduces building costs.
The Shuttle is the perfect storage system for medicines and expensive articles. Products are stored securely in containers, trays or cartons reducing costs and making the best possible use of the space available. All this guarantees maximum throughput and system availability. All our Shuttle solutions are modular, formed from racking, shuttles and control system. The Shuttle covers all the key processes of the modern automated warehouse including storage, consolidation, buffering, picking and handling of returns. The modular design allows system expansion to be carried out step-by-step, and the investment scaled accordingly.
The fully automated A-Frame picking machine handles rapid processing of complex orders. It guarantees the greatest possible productivity and an optimum material ﬂow. Medicines are ﬁlled into the product channels and then automatically separated, collected and deposited in the order container. Among the advantages of the A-Frame, it provides a signiﬁcant reduction of manpower required and shorten order transit times with great accuracy, high reliability. For pharmaceutical distributors, this means optimum personnel utilization in the warehouse, low error rates, and a signiﬁcantly enhanced performance.
The Pharma Store is an innovative storage and picking system and is particularly suitable for pharmacies. With manageable investment costs, the Pharma Store automates an article range that otherwise requires extensive manual processing. With the highest storage density in a small space, scalable size and a robust robot, the Pharma Store increases quality and efficiency and offers enough flexibility and performance to respond quickly to changing requirements. In addition, it meets industry-specific documentation requirements: batch tracking, serial number recording, expiry date.
ALS offers paperless picking technology, from Radio Frequency (RF) picking to Voice Picking, depending on the turnover rates and the item features to guarantee an accurate order fulfillment in the manual picking areas. Radio terminals indicate the article, storage location and picking quantity, minimizing the time required for picking. This pharma logistics system boosts both efficiency and quality in order fulfilment. The data provided by the RF, informs of the status of every order and the current stock level can be checked at any time.
Cold Chain is a critical element in the pharmaceutical supply chain, as sensitive products require specific temperature control while in storage and ultimately, transit. ALS offers Pharmaceutical Temperature Monitored and Controlled Storage Solutions. We operate under strict GDP guidelines encompassing full temperature reporting from product receipt through to storage and delivery to the end customer.
