Three overarching areas represent material handling challenges that need to be addressed and overcome, according to Tom Redding, senior managing director, Healthcare, St. Onge Co.

Redding leads with facility layout and configuration. “One of the biggest concerns with material handling has to do with how well the space is organized to facilitate an efficient and effective storeroom and/or warehouse,” he told Healthcare Purchasing News. “Additionally, the space is not organized to accommodate growth, which may result in a less optimal operation over time. Lastly, the space is not designed to accommodate technology which may result in congestion and further inefficiencies.”

Material and people flow come next. “Many facilities are older with limited clear height and don’t organize the space to optimize how materials flow in and out the space,” Redding said. “This may result in back tracking to get supplies and/or creating a pinch point when accommodating inbound and outbound activities.”
