"In healthcare logistics, there is no room for error. Patients are in need of medicines. So, it must be made available everywhere and on-time, and delivered cost-effectively."
What is healthcare logistics?
Healthcare logistics involves the shipping and handling of different types of medical supplies and equipment that requires specialized care & conditions.
What are the challenges of healthcare logistics?
Speedy and on-time- delivery is very important in healthcare logistics. Just a few hours of delay can damage the items in transit or cost patients their life. Therefore, even in the face of supply chain disruptions, order delays need to be avoided at all costs.
Companies also struggle to continuously meet the constantly changing compliance and quality regulations across regions and countries.
What types of products are managed through healthcare logistics?
Healthcare logistics involves the transport and storage of medicines and medical devices that may be time-sensitive or need special packaging. Healthcare logistics companies should have the capabilities to manage these urgent, hazardous, fragile or temperature/humidity-sensitive goods.
What is the role of medical logistics in healthcare?
Healthcare logistics enables medicines (and its raw materials) and medical equipment to arrive on-time, at their destination, and in good condition, supported by the right documentation.
How are pharmaceutical products transported and stored?
Typically, a temperature and humidity-controlled vehicle is used to transport medicines or pharma products to climate-controlled warehouses. These goods are constantly tracked and checked to ensure that quality and compliance regulations are met.
How can technology be used to improve pharmaceutical logistics?
Digitization is growing in importance in healthcare logistic management. State-of-the-art engineering, analytical and IT tools can be used in tandem to deliver optimal logistics solutions for your medical supply chain. Technology can help automate the tracking of medical inventory, pivot logistics strategy to manage supply chain disruptions, and improve transportation & warehousing efficiency.
