Febelco automates DC
With a 30% market share Febelco is by far the largest drug wholesaler and distributor on the Belgian market. Every day, Febelco serves its customers, comprising more than 2,500 dispensers, from 8 locations with more than 700 dedicated employees. As such, Febelco has a strong foot in the distribution segment of pharmaceuticals from industry to dispenser.

Febelco recently selected Egemin Automation for automating its existing sales & distribution centre in Izegem, located in West-Flanders. In the next few months, Egemin Automation will develop an order picking system for the Izegem site based on the zone picking concept. The system will consist of a number of conveyors covering a total length of 1,200 m that will be used for the internal transport of drugs. The date of commissioning for the entire system is planned for this summer.
