Laboratoires Pierre Fabre, the second largest independent French pharmaceutical company, has 42 branches, markets its products in more than 130 countries and employs approximately 10,000 people worldwide. Pierre Fabre's activities cover all aspects of healthcare - from prescription medicines and family health products to natural healthcare and dermo-cosmetics.

Christophe Ettviller, logistics director at Laboratoires Pierre Fabre SA, said, "With three separate and diverse operating divisions, multiple product brands and a global footprint, Laboratoires Pierre Fabre's supply chain must manage a significant degree of complexity and continually adapt to an ever-changing market environment. Within that context, it was imperative for us to standardize our supply chain processes so we could in turn enhance the service experience for our customers and maximize operational efficiency."

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most demanding in terms of logistics, with unique requirements such as expiry dates of products, batch management and the need for traceability in the form of an audit trail. The supply chain network needs to facilitate an improved logistics operation throughout Laboratoires Pierre Fabre's global business, as well as ensure safety and product compliance.

The implementation project is already underway at Laboratoires Pierre Fabre's 130,000 sq. ft. Ussel warehouse in Corrèze and will soon progress to a second, 860,000 sq. ft Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmétique warehouse based in Muret in Haute-Garonne.
