Large and Highly-Functional Logistics Center "TBC DynaBASE"

Response to disasters in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area

Being located inside the Loop Road No. 7 and near "Ariake-no-Oka," the main wide-area disaster management base facility, it's capable of providing pharmaceuticals promptly and smoothly in the event of a disaster such as the Tokyo Inland Earthquake. A seismic isolation structure is used not only for the buildings but also for the adjacent rampway (slope passage). In addition, equipped with a large private power generator (5,000 kVA), it can run at full capacity for 72 hours during emergencies.

World's Highest-level Automation Technologies

With the world's highest-level automation technologies, we aim to achieve a robot piece-picking rate of 95%. We also aim to attain more than seven-nines (99.99999%) shipping accuracy, which has been achieved by other logistics centers. Based on this high shipping accuracy, we will establish a delivery system based on a "No inspection system," which may contribute to improving the operational efficiency of our customers by omitting inspections at the time of delivery.

Establishing a logistics system that complies with PIC/S GDP* and GDP guidelines

Fully equipped loading dock shelters reduce the influence of the outside air and prevent any foreign matter from getting inside. The temperature is constantly monitored by 62 temperature loggers installed in various places around the warehouse, and the temperature inside the large cooling unit (approximately 2,215 m2) is also monitored. A system of alarms has been introduced which will be activated any time a temperature deviation is detected. The quality environment is fully compliant with PIC/S GDP* and GDP guidelines, and has been established with thorough measures involving the installation of bird nets, insect traps, ultrasonic rat prevention equipment, rat traps, etc.

*International Good Distribution Practices for storage, delivery, etc. as laid down by the Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention and Pharmaceutical Inspection Co-operation Scheme (PIC/S)

Efforts to reduce environmental impact

The use of automated picking by robots powered by night-time electricity contributes to energy saving. The vacuum part of the robots uses a power-saving system that stops the compressor when a certain degree of torque is generated. In addition, BEMS (Building Energy Management System) has been introduced to reduce energy consumption.
