Mediplast secures high quality warehouse operations with Consafe Logistics Astro WMS® Express


Mediplast is a trading company based in Sweden. They market and sell medical technical equipment as well as medical disposable products, this both within and outside of Scandinavia.

Mediplast needs to digitalize their warehouse with an advanced Warehouse Management System (WMS) in order to continue to grow within the same warehouse facility without any constructional changes. Increased handling efficiency together with efficient usage of the warehouse storage capacity, maintaining and improving the high-quality operation and automating the decision making within the warehouse operators are the main goals with the WMS implementation.

In the beginning of July, Consafe Logistics agreed and signed a frame agreement with Mediplast for implementing Astro WMS® in their warehouse in Malmö, Sweden. The warehouse is approximately 10 000 sqm, having 17 warehouse operators that manages the flows in and out. Mediplast is a  perfect fit for an Astro WMS® Express implementation, a deployment package based on pre-defined processes and a pre-configured Astro WMS® system, saving both time and money without compromising the solution and results.

By implementing an advanced Warehouse Management System like Astro WMS®, Mediplast will future proof their business, secure high quality and efficient warehouse operations and continued optimization and growth. In the future, they also see the potential to offer 3PL services within their warehouse.

“We look forward to working with Mediplast, finding smart ways to optimize and improve the quality of their warehouse operations” states Christoffer Ousbäck, Business Development Executive at Consafe Logistics. “The medtech industry is highly interesting because of their special and extended regulations for warehouse handling with products delivered to, for instance, public hospitals. Something that we at Consafe Logistics have an extensive experience of already from existing customers.“

“Choosing the correct WMS that suits our needs in the warehouse operation is a very important business decision for the future. I am glad to announce that we have chosen Astro WMS® from Consafe Logistics, this thanks to the extensive functionality flora available as standard in the system”, states Jimmy Olsen, Global Supply Chain Manager at Mediplast. “Consafe Logistics will be able to deliver overall product and customer value to Mediplast thanks to the industry experienced application consultants that knows logistics in reality, and not only possess knowledge of the IT-system as such. I am also convinced that the current customer portfolio that Consafe Logistics already possess also can help Mediplast since we can benchmark efficient warehouse processes from other industries.”  

Consafe Logistics welcomes Mediplast to its customer portfolio. Implementation of project commenced in August 2019 and go live is planned for December 2019.
