RedPrairie Corporation, a productivity software provider, announces Teva UK Limited, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the UK, has opened its new head office and logistics centre near Castleford, West Yorkshire, which is powered by RedPrairie’s warehouse and workforce management solutions.
The new logistics centre covers some 200,000 sq. ft., and includes 19 lorry dock loading doors, with high bay storage that can hold up to 18,300 pallets. The automated storage and retrieval system can hold up to 2,810 pallets.
Teva is using technology from RedPrairie in the new facility to help boost efficiency and improve customer service.
Aviad Bussi, Commercial Operations Director at Teva said, "Our new logistics centre will support the needs of our expanding business and help to improve our heathcare logistics and deliver excellent customer service. It has the capacity to cope with increases in volume and will deliver new ways of serving customers. The RedPrairie technology that we have in place allows us to optimise all processes, from goods-in to customer dispatch, and all the people who move them."
Richard Daniell, Teva’s Senior Director, said: "I’m delighted that we have achieved this major landmark. The move helps consolidate our position as one of the UK’s leading pharmaceutical companies. But more importantly, the new site is bringing big improvements for our customers, as we finally have the space and the facilities to provide the best possible service."
