Medical device distribution center with order processing

"Medtronic" - one of the largest suppliers of medical engineering products ensures delivery of hightech devices such as cardiac pacemakers throughout the world within 24 hours.

In order to secure smooth processing of orders a comprehensive logistic system was installed, in which the Hänel storage units play the leading role. 

Goods are received on the ground floor with the data is entered by barcode-scanner and the items are put into the storage.

260 cardiac pacemakers are kept safely in each container, in multistorey Lean-Lifts® with double access points. On the upper floor the articles are later boxed and forwarded to dipatch departmend.

Together with Medtronic, Hänel developed a tailored software solution which meets all the logistical requirements brilliantly.
