Uniphar Warehousing & Distribution

Allphar’s core function is the warehousing and distribution of pharma and healthcare products. European trends and competitor analysis point to distributors needing to position themselves as strong players in the healthcare/pharma supply chain with added value solutions to pharmaceutical manufacturers and healthcare providers.

Operating from a purpose built state of the art complex in West Dublin, Allphar are strategically located on the capital's orbital hub to enable safe, swift distribution nationwide. Allphar have invested in a 60,000 square feet warehouse The Uniphar Group has invested more than €65m in developing a new distribution facility located in the Citywest Business campus.

This new facility offers some 50,000sq ft of modern offices over two three storey blocks, 180,000 sq. ft of temperature controlled warehousing (air conditioned), 10,000 pallet spaces for ambient storage, in excess of 300 cold storage pallet spaces, and also increased controlled drug storage up to 200 pallet spaces. It is a state of the art storage, warehousing and office facility, specialised to meet the exacting needs of the pharmaceutical industry.

The warehouse has a unique A frame system where the fastest-moving stock is replenished at lightning speed and the system then knows how many totes of a product it holds and it automatically drops these fast-movers on to the conveyor which delivers the order into the tote for dispatch. The warehouse also operates a ‘pick by light’ technology which tells the warehouse team where the product is located so they can quickly pick the items and drop it in the appropriate bucket. All operations are overseen by the Control Tower to our processes are adhered to

In order to provide better communication on our delivery times and schedules Allphar have introduced a new ePOD tracking system so that all deliveries will be electronically tracked from the time the order is placed until it is receipted by the end customer. This system is fully operational out of the Dublin depot and will be operational out of Limerick, Cork and Sligo by the end of 2012.

These include:

  • Temperature controlled warehousing
