Logistics that work – UNITAX-Pharmalogistik
UNITAX stores and transports sensitive pharmaceutical and medical-technology products – securely, reliably and in temperature-controlled conditions.The market for pharmaceutical products is large and international. Pharmaceuticals travel long distances before they arrive at pharmacies, clinics and with patients. To ensure their quality, manufacturers, distributors and logistics service providers have to comply with strict conditions.
UNITAX-Pharmalogistik meets all the requirements for the responsible handling of medical products and drugs. In February 2015, UNITAX was the first German service provider to the pharmaceutical industry to be awarded an official GDP (Good Distribution Practice) certificate in recognition of its compliance with the strict guidelines of the EU Commission.
UNITAX is certified according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and GSP (Good Storage Practice) and complies with the specifications of the German Ordinance on the Production of Pharmaceuticals and Active Substances (AMWHV) and the German Medicines Act (AMG) for human medicine and veterinary medicines.
Founded in 1991 by André Reich, the family-owned company currently employs 135 people at its sites in Berlin-Schönefeld (headquarters), Berlin-Adlershof and Nuremberg.
UNITAX offers officially-audited, temperature-controlled transport processes (GDP). For distribution, we use more than 40 company-owned specialist pharmaceutical vehicles.
We store raw materials, medicines, water-polluting substances and narcotics in defined climate areas (ambient: 15–25 °C, cold: 2–8 °C and -20 °C) that are subject to special security measures. In Berlin, we have more than 20,000 m² and in Nuremberg more than 9,000 m² of warehouse and logistics space available.
As a GMP-certified pharmaceutical logistics provider with its own manufacturing authorisation in accordance with Section 13 AMG, we accept processing work such as repackaging, labeling, banding, coding, folding and printing variable data.
In pharmaceutical logistics, bulk containers and pallets must meet high standards of hygiene. We ensure the cleanliness of the transport means using a modern cleaning system and documented processes.
