Innovative solutions


The cooperation with the wholesaler “voigt” optimizes the availability of medicines (also of rarely used medicines) in the city of Zurich. An innovative solution – a project which is the first of its kind in Switzerland.



Together with the Swiss wholesaler “Voigt” and the bicycle courier “veloblitz”, we guarantee a fast availability of medicines for the pharmacies of the city of Zurich and their customers.
With this unique service, customer needs can be met quickly and efficiently – regardless of the current traffic situation or fixed order schedules. Expensive or rare drugs can be ordered if needed and at any time of the day.
The delivery is either made directly by the GDP-compliant bicycle courier partner “veloblitz” or picked up by the pharmacies staff to the opening hours of ApoDoc or at the ApoDoc Pick-up Terminal outside the pharmacy (via PIN Code).  The order is made via the POS terminal of the pharmacies directly to ApoDoc.
Express Medication Stock is an innovative service with the aim of making important medicines quickly available in the city of Zurich.
