Abstract [en]

Purpose

When hospitals are built or renovated, they are often operational. To reduce disturbances and improve logistics performance, construction logistics solutions (CLS) can be deployed. Presently, there is no best practice regarding CLS organizing. The purpose of this study is to explore how CLS’s can be classified in order to improve the organization of future hospital project CLS’s.

Design/methodology/approach

This study compares how CLS’s have been organized in six hospital projects in Sweden, Finland and Denmark with the help of city logistics classification models. Cross-case analysis aiming at finding similarities/differences in CLS organizing is conducted, classifying them in accordance with city logistics literature.

Findings

This study shows that hospital CLS’s are often initiated as a problem solver for disturbances without considering how logistics can provide more value or how to follow up the CLS performance. The study operationalizes abstract measures from city logistics alongside contextual considerations to propose a new process for designing hospital CLS’s.

Research implications

The study highlights how different city logistics elements should be translated into operational and organizational features of CLS’s in hospital construction projects.

Practical implications

The study provides a practical process of designing a CLS’s for hospital projects by utilizing current knowledge from city logistics and contextual factors affecting hospital projects.

Original/value

This is one of the first studies that compare different CLS’s in hospital construction based on a structure accepted within the logistics area, i.e. city logistics.
