With its central location in Spain, Alcalá is a perfect place for time critical logistics of pharmaceuticals and medical technology products. "This allows us to optimize transport times and to provide pharmacies, hospitals and wholesalers throughout the Iberian Peninsula with improved customer services," explains Christian Wolf, Executive Vice President at Arvato Healthcare. As a legal requirement in Spain medicines must be received by recipients such as pharmacies within 24 hours of dispatch. "Embedded in Arvato’s existing European site network the new Alcalá distribution centre helps our clients to meet this requirement, with reduced transport costs and increased delivery reliability", said Wolf.
The warehouse and all Arvato Healthcare activities in Spain will meet all Good Manufacturing Practice and Good Distribution Practice requirements. "The quality management system in Spain is fully integrated in our European QM system and the quality organisation," explains Carsten Thiemt, Director of Quality Management for Arvato Healthcare in Europe. It goes without saying that this new location is also fully integrated in the SAP-based Arvato IT structure. This reduces interfaces and guarantees standardised processes to manufacturers across national borders, while ensuring data security and transparency.
