Galexis AG, part of the Galenica group, is a leading pharmaceutical wholesaler in Switzerland with two distribution centers providing pharmacies, medical practices, drugstores, nursing homes and hospitals with its extensive range of products and services.
In 2009, Galexis with the help of SSI Schaefer put into operation one of the most sophisticated logistics centers in the pharmaceutical sector in Niederbipp, Switzerland. This made it possible to achieve a significant increase in efficiency and quality, introduce more cost-effective work processes and implement the highest safety standards. Thanks to the integration of automatic picking systems with a picking performance of up to 1,600 totes per hour and automatic document insertion machines, the Niederbipp distribution center reached a degree of automation of approx. 70% with up to 2,800 totes processed per hour.
