Shop pharmacy eliminates capacity bottlenecks – com! professional


For a long time, Shop Apotheke had to struggle with logistics problems due to the tense labor market and the move to the new location in Sevenum. But now the online pharmacy sees itself back on track.

The online drug dealer Shop Apotheke sees itself on track after nine months. Based on preliminary calculations, sales rose by 9.8 percent to 772 million euros, according to the company in Venlo. The capacity bottlenecks as a result of the move to a new logistics center would have continued until mid-September, it said.

Thanks to double-digit growth towards the end of the quarter, the company was able to close the third quarter with a slight decrease in sales of 0.3 percent to 238 million euros. The number of active customers has increased by one million to 7.3 million since the beginning of the year. The shares initially continued to decline before the trading session.

The move to the new logistics center has now been completed, commented CEO Stefan Feltens. “Our capacity bottlenecks have now been eliminated, there is no longer any shortage of personnel in logistics.” This means that Shop Apotheke can return to growth, according to the manager. The company is now “ready for further growth in the fourth quarter and in the coming year”.
