C-parts Logistics in the Healthcare Sector [1.89 mb]

During the last decades expenditures in the healthcare industry increased dramatically in Austria. Mainly because of the medical progress and the demographic change, which diversifies our whole society. For this reason, the pressure on saving money and increasing efficiency is escalating for healthcare organizations. Especially within the logistical field, healthcare institutions have high potentials to cut costs and work more efficient. This thesis provides a concept to increase the transport efficiency, which implicates a lot of positive aspects for several stakeholders of the healthcare supply chain. The idea behind the concept is to bundle the whole deliveries of institutions through centralized logistical platforms in Austria. Total orders from several suppliers are shipped to these regional consolidation centers, where the goods get sorted and picked by stations. Afterwards the orders get distributed to the customers. The focus lies on c-parts, because they are required frequently and in high quantities. The aim of the thesis is to analyze this concept and to find out the advantages and disadvantages for establishments and suppliers of the healthcare sector. The findings result of a review of already existing literature and a qualitative research study with Austrian suppliers of the medical field. The professional interviews have in common that large enterprises are open to this new concept because they are convinced of saving transport costs and an increasing transport efficiency, while small companies are rather skeptical due to missing benefits.
