trans-o-flex extends co-operation with Bionorica: second warehouse put into operation

Agreement renewed for another five years / Shipments of the leading manufacturer of herbal medicines distributed to two warehouses / Deadline for German customers to place orders extended by more than one hour

(PresseBox) (Weinheim , ) trans-o-flex Logistik-Service GmbH and Bionorica, the leading specialist for herbal medicines, are going to extend their co-operation existing since 1998 and renewed their agreement for another five years. Due to Bionorica's strongly growing international business, the warehouse in Roth, which has been operated for more 15 years, has reached its maximum capacity. This is why trans-o-flex will, in the future, store Bionorica products at two locations: the products for the international markets in Roth and the products for the German market in Alzenau.

trans-o-flex Logistik-Service takes over the entire warehousing and picking & packing for the leading manufacturer of herbal medicines as well as the shipment preparation and handover of the products to the specific transport service provider for delivery. As a combi-freight specialist, trans-o-flex Schnell-Lieferdienst transports goods both in parcels and on pallets, which are delivered to German recipients. "Thus, we not only have won additional capacities but were also able to further optimise the service for our customers in Germany", says Ralf Will, Head of Product Supply at Bionorica. As the warehouse in Alzenau is located directly next to the location of trans-o-flex Schnell-Lieferdienst, shipments can immediately be fed into the combi-freight network. "Thus, the deadline for placing orders could be extended by more than one hour."

As regards the international markets, the deliveries are taken over by forwarding agents named by Bionorica, who pick up the goods from trans-o-flex Logistik- Service in Roth. The locations in Roth and Alzenau are certified warehouses for pharmaceuticals, which trans-o-flex operates in Germany in addition to its conventional warehouse locations.

"Especially for strongly growing companies such as Bionorica, the easy scalability of the trans-o-flex system is a decisive advantage", says Peter Astor, Managing Director of trans-o-flex Logistik-Service GmbH. "The combi-freight offer makes it possible for us to serve different customer groups, such as wholesalers or individual pharmacies, within one network and always deliver the optimal batch sizes and packaging units."
