Parlogis’ social responsibility
The name Parlogis is derived from the phrase “Partner in logistics”, which describes the role of the company well. Parlogis offers comprehensive product management services in the health and health products sector, with a strong focus on ambitious workmanship, excellence and reliability. Parlogis’ social responsibility is great, especially considering that it is responsible for the supply chain for approx. 40% of the pharmaceutical market in Iceland, in addition to which the company has significant activities in terms of the distribution of nursing products and medical devices. Parlogis takes its role very seriously and makes sure that there is an adequate supply of marketed medicines and medical devices in the country, which is especially important in the time of COVID-19 and global unrest.
700 Orders Daily
Parlogis operates two warehouses. One of them is specialised for medicinal products and health products to ensure the right storage and processing conditions, and the other warehouse is specialised for consumer products such as vitamins and supplements, sporting goods and food. Both warehouses are well equipped, and the reliability is invariably above 99.9%. On average, around 700 orders are processed daily from Parlogis’ warehouses to pharmacies, hospitals, laboratories, dentists, specialists and grocery stores, and in most cases orders, are processed within 24 hours.
Professional Working Practices are Paramount
Quality control is paramount in all of Parlogis’ operations. Work is done according to ISO 9001 certification, GDP (Good Distribution Practice) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice). Medicines are sensitive products, and therefore, special care must be taken with both transport and storage conditions to ensure their efficacy and quality. Pharmaceutical shipments to Iceland contain a temperature sensor that is read during a thorough reception inspection to ensure that temperature deviations or other deviations did not occur before the medicinal products are approved for sale and thus become widely distributed within the healthcare system.
Annual Service Surveys Prove the Quality of the Service
Parlogis conducts an annual customer service survey, with independent marketing companies sending out questionnaires to pharmacies, hospitals and healthcare facilities. The results of the survey have for years unequivocally shown that Parlogis provides the healthcare system with excellent service and reliability at the forefront in Iceland.
