Swiss Post runs an central automated storage facility for several hospitals. Suppliers no longer make individual deliveries to the hospital, but instead bring the various goods directly to Swiss Post’s central logistics center. Here they are checked and stored long-term or temporarily storage and inspection of your items. with the support of the system. If required, cross-docking is carried out where goods delivered by external suppliers are combined on a time-specific basis with the hospital’s centrally stored products. The orders from individual hospitals are supplied on a ward-specific basis and transported to the agreed location in accordance with regulatory guidelines. GDP-compliant and actively or passively temperature-controlled transport complements Swiss Post’s range of environmentally sustainable services.
