RP-ST Logistics Healthcare Supply Chain Lab

RP-ST Logistics Healthcare Supply Chain Lab

The RP-ST Logistics Healthcare Supply Chain Lab is modelled after an integrated healthcare supply chain system.

Some of the key automation equipment in the lab include:

  1. An Integrated Supply Chain Tower System (SiTadeL) that serves as an information hub.
  2. An Icon Freight System that tracks both the air and sea freight shipments in and out of Singapore.
  3. A Cold Chain System, which tracks and traces cold chain deliveries to ensure the integrity and quality of the medical products.
  4. A Telematics System equipped with geofencing capabilities that generates alerts when vehicles breach out-of-bound areas and provides live stream images for secure tracking of medical products.
  5. A Transport Management System that provides a comprehensive view of all delivery points, activities status and fleet management.
