Pharma and Healthcare

Logistics

For almost 50 years, the trans-o-flex Group has, with its pharma and healthcare logistics services, made an indispensable contribution to the reliable provision of the population in Germany with pharmaceuticals, vaccines, diagnostic agents and medical products. Our customers can select individual services from a modular system, combine these with each other and receive a complete service from a single source. The range extends from procurement to warehouse services, through to distribution, returns logistics and disposal.

With the international network EURODIS, the service has been extended to 36 countries in Europe. All the distribution channels of the pharma and healthcare industry, both in the area of human and veterinary medicine, are supported by our specialised logistics concepts. In Germany, for instance, we supply daily with a regular transit time of 24 hours to virtually all pharmacies, hospitals, clinics and pharmaceutical wholesalers. Old peoples homes and care facilities, doctor’s and veterinary surgeries, laboratories, the pharmaceutical industry itself along with its field service organisations through to home patients are regular recipients of the sensitive products accepted and transported by us.

Our shipments and warehouse services are provided as stipulated by the European and national logistics regulations (e.g. GDP and AMWHV). This applies both to products that do not require temperature control and to temperature-sensitive products that we transport – tracked and traced – actively temperature controlled at 2 °C to 8 °C or 15 °C to 25 °C.

Special services such as the shipment of hazardous goods, of time-controlled express deliveries by 8.00 a.m., 9.00 a.m., 10.00 a.m. or 12.00 noon, Saturday deliveries and collections, direct deliveries with individual time slots, packaging disposal/return, physician sample shipments plus other value-added services go to complete our special services for the pharma and healthcare sector.
