Zanzibar Central Medical Stores Network and Transportation Optimization Analysis
As of January 2014, ZILS has been fully implemented in all facilities of Unguja and Pemba islands. The Network and Transportation Optimization Analysis complements the ZILS implementation by examining the parallel supply chains managed by CMS; they are being integrated under the new system to facilitate a smooth operation transition, including an understanding of the funding requirements. The goals of this analysis are to build supply chain network optimization models that identify cost-saving measures for warehousing, sourcing, inventory management, distribution, and route planning for the integrated supply under CMS. Specifically, this analysis examines the optimal location for a Pemba warehouse and how distribution routes can be optimized to reduce the operational costs associated with storing and delivering products to all health facilities on the islands.
