Healthcare Products Require Special 3pl Pharmaceutical Logistics

Partnering with our visionary clients is an exciting opportunity for Lomas Logistics. As our pharmacological clients are undergoing tremendous growth, we support them by providing integrated 3pl solutions, within our DEL-rated storage and multi-faceted transportation environment. Lomas Logistics’ ‘best in class’ WMS (Warehouse Management System) handles every possible aspect of inventory management, from goods in transit, through the dock and any cross-docking activities, till every SKU is accurately integrated into the client’s inventory in our GMP-compliant warehouse

One of our fastest-growing clients is a leading biomedical device manufacturer. As their 3pl pharmaceutical warehouse and distribution centre in Canada, we handle a wide range of logistical functions from order fulfillment (servicing both physicians and patients) to reconfiguration of products and, most recently, even the distribution management/tracking of inventory for new clinical trial programs.

This means segregating and accurately tracking trial items from the regular inventory, relabeling all the packaging and sending directly to physicians across Canada. We also take care of any returns, reporting to our client.

Our warehouse team works with the inventory, reconfiguring medical devices electronically then repackaging them with the correct educational/marketing literature and accessories. Lomas Logistics is also qualified to modify the products with technical upgrades and recycle some of the ultrasonic units for the secondary market. This includes managing the additional usage program for patients who want to extend the life of their devices. Lomas receives individual units, adjust their data, update the accessory kit, clean and refurbish the unit and then return it to the patient.

In addition, Lomas can handle 3pl distribution from product launch and placement with HCPs/hospital/clinics as well as retail for a number of our pharmaceutical clients. We are able to manage inventory for seasonal and year round products, and work with our sophisticated EDI and lot control system to accurately forecast inventory and shipping needs. Our dedicated and experienced 3pl retail distribution team is skilled at handling unique displays and POP materials, loading them with product, and handling every technical and logistical detail from A to Z, on a national basis.

The Lomas Logistics team has worked hard to develop special skills that build on their strong core competencies in logistics. Our clients are able to rely on us to accurately manage inventory, from predicting seasonal and special event levels, to mastering new tasks, such as special projects, new equipment, a wide variety of deadlines, and unique end users’ needs. We’re continuously amazed and proud of the relationships we build as a team and the results we deliver as a company.
