Integrated logistics Solutions

3D Logistics for Smart Hospitals & Healthcare facilities

The concept is based on a network of Electric Track Vehicle (ETV) tracks, Conveyor belts, Lifts, Pneumatic Tube System (PTS), Service robots and a small fleet of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) that connects central production support functions such as pharmacy, laboratories, Service Departments, warehouse, stock delivery, and kitchen with each department.
This fully automated storage solution can make just-in-time supply a reality in the new hospital because hospital staff can make orders on their tablet for immediate pick-up at the nearest supply outlet.
The system can address up to 90 percent of the internal logistics tasks. Supplies, goods, and equipment no longer take up expensive storage space on every ward in the hospital; instead supplies will be available throughout the hospital from any ward when and where they are needed. Staff no longer has to keep inventory on the ward and manage storage facilities. Time spend in retrieving, ordering, transporting, and handling supplies can be reduced considerably, which give staff more time to focus on patient related tasks.

The new concept is expected to reduce stock levels because the complete storage content will be accessible across the hospital – allowing supplies to be shared between departments and wards. Short and easy access to supplies outlets is expected to shorten walking distances for the clinical staff.


  • Makes supplies available throughout the hospital from any department whenever and wherever they are needed.

  • Improves working environment by reducing need for manual lifting and handling of supplies.
  • Reduces storage space needed by utilizing the full building and floor height for storage.
  • Reduces waste by providing an always up-to-date inventory of all stored supplies and allowing older supplies to be used before they reach expiration date.
