Pharmaceutical Products Distribution Centre Count

One of the most diversified players in the health sector in Brazil required the support of RGIS. With operations in distribution, specialties and retail, they had to satisfy all audiences: shareholders, industries, pharmacies, hospitals and consumers. The pharmaceutical product distributor has 11 drug distribution centres.


The pharmaceutical product distributor wanted to have a full analysis report of a distribution centre, so required RGIS to provide the following:

  • Pre-inventory count planning for high levels
  • Count all items within the distribution centre
  • Full count to be completed within two days


The pharmaceutical product distributor partnered with RGIS to complete the pharmaceutical distribution centre count project, and provided the following:

  • Support equipment used:
  • Airport model stairs x 10 – counting up to the second level
  • Lifting platforms x 20 – counting up to the seventh level
  • Fork lift trucks x 3 – counting up to the eighth level
  • Fork lift trucks x 2 – counting lower mixed pallets from overhead
  • Scheduled teams of RGIS auditors:
  • Three shifts of 133 experienced RGIS auditors
  • One shift of 70 experienced RGIS auditors


The pharmaceutical product distributor found by outsourcing the pharmaceutical distribution centre count project to RGIS, the following results were achieved:

  • A total of 7,872,778 items were counted
  • Full count of the distribution centre was completed within the time frame given by the customer
  • The customer now has a full understanding of all the stock it has held within the distribution centre
