Mar 18, 2014
ULMA Handling Systems, in collaboration with the research and consulting company GLOBOPE Research and Consulting, has published a book called “Health Logistics: Challenges and New Trends”. Its aim is to make an extensive, detailed and updated review of the logistics process for materials, including numerous examples of logistics practices carried out today.

The book is divided into easy-to-follow chapters which analyse the different flow stages of materials from the supplier to the patient, together with associated information and purchasing process management.

It also looks at different management models for hospital logistics, demand forecast techniques, stock management strategies, localization, dimensioning and warehouse design, the different subprocesses related to material flow (reception, location, order picking, etc.), the restocking function and reverse flow.

In recent years, health logistics has become more important and now contributes to better hospital functioning, whose challenge is focused on providing an efficient solution to hospital storage systems and material management, for which product safety and traceability are parameters of vital importance.
