ÅF becomes logistic partner to University Hospital in Umeå
ÅF won a contract to lead all construction logistics concerning renovations and new construction at the University Hospital in Umeå.
The assignment includes logistics management and coordination of transport in the hospital area and will be done in cooperation with DB Schenker and IT company Myloc.
– We are very proud of the trust placed in us and see it as evidence of our ability to package various specialities in an end-to-end solution that creates the greatest possible customer value,” says Pär Ström, Business Manager at ÅF.
ÅF’s logistics solution is a module-based concept that in this project consists of a construction logistics centre for transport coordination and joint IT support for controlling all activities. ÅF is responsible for concept design, logistics management and project management, DB Schenker is responsible for logistics services and Myloc is developing IT support.
– A lot of time and money can be saved with smart delivery flows, especially in this type of large hospital project where multiple construction contractors have to share limited space with regular operations,” says Petter Wadmark, Project Manager at ÅF.
The project starts in December 2017 and is scheduled to run until 2022. The contractor is Västerbotten County Council.
ÅF has previously worked on electricity, construction and medical gas projects for University Hospital in Umeå.
