Pharma Logistics and SAP Integration
LTS is the market leader for transdermal therapeutic systems and oral thin films (OTF). Founded in 1984, LTS has over the years grown into a strong and innovative company. The purpose of the newbuild is to support the sustained growth in production with optimal logistics processes.
The optimisation of all processes at the logistics centre was a key priority right from the start. All processes follow the ‘Lean Principles’ approach and support the work with optimal interactions between production and logistics.
Thanks to SAP-based mobile data recording, barcode labelling for incoming goods, and automatic pallet measuring and weighing, every pallet finds its place in one of the 14,000 high bay pallet spaces autonomously.
The two-storey annex accommodates the incoming and outgoing goods areas and the truck loading gates on the ground floor, which is connected to the warehouse and the high-bay racks via a fully automated conveyor system. The 34m high-bay warehouse spans an area of 72m by 31m and provides space for 14,000 pallets on 18 levels. Pharmaceuticals and their starting materials are stored in the warehouse at constant temperatures between 15 and 25°C all year round.
