Healthcare Logistics Challenges

The vast majority of hospitals rely on the purchase order process and reconcile purchase orders once packages arrive at the hospital. This process is tedious, time-consuming and is often inaccurate. On top of this, hospitals are faced with a number of other common logistics challenges, including:

  • Multiple points of entry (materials management, the loading dock, the mailroom, etc.)
  • Multiple types of inbound packages (individual-specific, department-specific, supplies)
  • Different shipping policies and standards for different departments, which make it difficult to achieve consistency or cost savings
  • Reporting on shipments from multiple carriers is very time-consuming
  • Shipping non-regulated chemicals and regulated hazardous materials requires strict adherence to transportation regulations to help protect you from liability
