Who We Are:

Founded in 1996, Alloga UK is a specialist in logistics solutions for healthcare, and part of Walgreens Boots Alliance. The company was founded through a joint venture between UniChem and United Drug in Ireland after recognising the requirement for a service linking manufacturers to wholesalers. Our consistent growth in scale and numbers of clients over the last 20 years is testament to that vision, and the quality of service, control and information that Alloga UK provides.

With over two decades experience in healthcare logistics, Alloga UK has used this expertise to support clients with a wide range of healthcare products, specialising in pharmaceutical, healthcare, veterinary, medical device and consumer products.

Our client list includes some of the largest blue-chip pharmaceutical companies operating in the UK. With consistent growth through exceptional quality of service, Alloga UK has secured an enviable position in the UK healthcare logistics market. Our goal is to strengthen our position as the UK’s undisputed leading healthcare supply chain service provider.

Centrally located by the M1 (J28) in Derbyshire, we’re perfectly positioned to reach the whole of the UK, linking up with our own out-based van fleet across the country. Alloga UK also benefits from our partnership with our parent company, Alliance Healthcare, and their 1,000-strong van fleet which visits hospitals and pharmacies twice daily.

Our multi-user environment supports over 130 clients, including over 20 of the top 50 pharmaceutical companies. Our client base ranges from major international pharma companies to small, start-up businesses, all of whom benefit from the same high levels of care and expertise, whether they’re storing 10,000 pallets or one. Clients benefit from our scale and expertise, without the regulatory burden or the fixed costs and issues associated with running their own in-house operations. Alloga UK clients are in safe hands and can concentrate on growing their businesses.

With now over 800 members of staff, across our six warehouses Alloga UK offers a full range of storage facilities from ambient, ambient-controlled (15-25(c), aerosol storage, chilled (2-8(c), frozen, cryogenic and other specialised high security products for controlled drugs and high- value lines. This allows us to offer the most complete, and comprehensive, range of logistics solutions in the UK for pharmaceuticals and healthcare.
