25. 八月 2015 Combined Know-how: SSI Schäfer and CareFusion Collaborate in the Pharmaceutical Industry The worldwide leading provider of warehouse and logistic systems SSI Schäfer and the medical technology company CareFusion has deepened their collaboration in the pharmaceutical industry.

CareFusion offers customized solutions with the Rowa automation systems for automated medication handling in hospitals, pharmacies, online pharmacies and wholesalers. More than 5,500 systems worldwide have been produced by CareFusion at their Kelberg/Eifel location, installed on-site and maintained during live operation. Rowa automats are fully automated to register, store and pick medications in compact spaces. In the area of pharmaceutical picking, Rowa systems are often used for medium to slow movers, and in BTM or cold storage areas. Thanks to the intelligent software application, they can be integrated into existing software and hardware solutions.

SSI Schäfer has comprehensive know-how and technology for the pharmaceutical supply chain. This includes manual as well as semi-automatic and highly automated solutions such as A-Frame automats for picking fast movers, the Schäfer Miniload System and Schäfer Carousel System for storing and picking medium movers or for consolidating orders, in addition to the Batch Pick’n Scan sorter for registering and sorting a wide range of products. Individual work stations for processing and picking, conveying systems, handling systems, racks, storage and transport loading units and customized software solutions round out the product pallet. SSI Schäfer is the single source for everything from planning, implementation, and start-up to operational assistance services.

Both companies want to continue their collaboration in the future to be able to offer customer-specific logistic solutions with a standardized design for the pharmaceutical and health industries. The agreement signed on 12th August unifies different competencies in the areas of consultation, project management, installation and customer service. Pharmaceutical wholesalers, distributors and online pharmacies should especially profit from this cooperation in the future.

"Thanks to their years of experience SSI Schäfer has become a market leader in the field of pharmaceutical warehousing and distribution. The Rowa automats complement our product portfolio for picking medium and slow moving products, and application in the areas of cold storage, anesthetics and returns. They offer fully-automated integrated serial numbers, expiry dates and lot registration with extremely high storage density," explains Manfred Preiß, Vice President Global Sales at SSI Schäfer. The family-owned group of companies is represented in 55 countries and brings with it an extensive list of references, contacts and experience in collaborations.

"The collaboration with SSI Schäfer enabled us to better respond to the needs of our customers in the pharmaceutical branch and to develop customized solutions with our combined know-how," says Dirk Bockelmann, Sales Director Dispensing Retail International at CareFusion | Rowa. "This puts us one step closer to our goal of improved quality and costs in healthcare."
