About HUS Logistics
HUS Logistics provides logistics services, material services, and medical engineering services for the entire HUS.
HUS, formally the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa, is made up of five hospital areas: Helsinki University Hospital, Hyvinkää, Lohja, Porvoo, and Västra Nyland. HUS is the largest healthcare provider and the second-largest employer in Finland.
Clients of HUS Logistics include all HUS hospitals and treatment units. In addition, they provide services to the HUS member municipalities and the Helsinki University Hospital Specific Catchment Areas that have signed a service agreement with them.
The HUS Logistics WMS project was launched in the spring of 2021 with a survey on customer references of domestic WMS suppliers.
During the WMS project and together with HUS Logistics warehouse staff, we visited the Masku Kalustetalo’s logistics center in Mäntsälä. HUS Logistics conducted a market presentation where we reviewed successful WMS projects and highlighted key issues based on our expertise.
The HUS Logistics WMS procurement was published in the Finnish public procurement portal Hilma on 25 May 2022.
The decision of selection was announced on 15 August 2022 and Roima’s FidaWare WMS won the tender. The competition was very tuff, but FidaWare WMS was the customer’s choice, says Arto Pellonpää, from Roima and WMS solution sales.
The implementation of the FidaWare WMS system started with a SaaS delivery model in September 2022. The aim is to significantly improve throughput, increase storage capacity and reduce the number of times items are processed.
Paula Mikkonen, logistics manager of HUS Logistics has been very satisfied with the FidaWare WMS selection and Roima’s project model and WMS implementation project.
