Karlstad’s main hospital has more than 600 patient beds and its 3,200 employees provide health services for the entire Värmland region in Sweden. As part of a building extension in 2010, the intralogistics operation had to be organized more efficiently and retrieval times cut.

  • Installation in the center of the building cuts the distance traveled by employees
  • More precise operation thanks to LED pointers and handheld devices
  • Measures have led to time savings of 75%
  • An additional 4–5 patient beds on each floor thanks to the freed-up space
  • Greater liquidity due to the reduced amount of stored goods and tied-up capital
  • Hygienic wire mesh inserts guarantee the cleanliness of the items
  • Increased security provided by PC backup
