Arvato Supply Chain Solutions has expanded its healthcare site in Harsewinkel in the district of Gütersloh to become the most modern in Europe. There, a new multi-client capable shuttle warehouse with picking system was implemented during ongoing operations and presented live to numerous customers and guests as part of a large infotainment show. The new system is optimally tailored to the customer structure and ensures a sustainable increase in efficiency in the entire value-added process of warehouse logistics.

Direct sales by pharmaceutical and medical technology manufacturers have increased significantly. In order to ensure optimal patient care at all times, it is necessary to react quickly. Automation is therefore so important."
