The logistics platform: little known but essential

Focus on the logistics platform of Caen Normandy University Hospital, a strategic and often overlooked system which contributes to the smooth running of the hospital.

Key figures

  • 4000 m²
  • 74 trained and motivated agents (order preparers, receivers, distribution agents, drivers, couriers)
  • more than 100,000 packages received per year
  • + 23,000 delivery requests by healthcare services per year
  • Nearly 40,000 meal trolleys and 25,000 linen cabinets delivered each year

Challenges for 2024

After the move to the new premises in June 2023 and the appropriation of the new platform, the challenges for 2024 are now:

  • to implement an optimal storage policy, adapted to daily needs and in anticipation of crises (supply difficulties, health crisis, etc.)
  • to improve logistics within healthcare services to facilitate the daily lives of caregivers

An expertise in its own right, discreet but essential for hospital services and healthcare teams.
