Warehousing

Warehousing

Baxter Healthcare Pty Ltd services customers and home patients throughout Australia and New Zealand. From densely populated metropolitan areas, to rural and country areas through to the remotest locations - if a delivery is required there, Baxter has the logistical infrastructure to provide it in a timely manner.

The bulk of Baxter's deliveries are sterile fluids. These products are relatively heavy, generally used in substantial quantities, and are used in critical therapies. Quite often, these products are required urgently and to provide such availability, Baxter has established nine Distribution Centres throughout Australia and New Zealand. Our warehouses have a capacity of over 23,000 pallets.

Baxter has a fleet of dedicated delivery vehicles servicing the metropolitan areas and formed strategic alliances with quality transport companies for intrastate and interstate distribution. The quality of our distribution centres and delivery services are measured and analysed as the foundation for our continuous improvement agenda.

All Distribution Centres operate state of the art warehouse management systems that provide real time processing that results in world class accuracy.

The volumes that are moved through the supply chain by Baxter Distribution are unprecedented in our industry. Each year we handle in excess of 2,000 full sea container movements, ship 800,000 line items to customers on 160,000 orders.
