Integrated Logistics Capability

Utilizing our industry knowledge and competitive advantage, we were able to develop a system for tracking inventory in our warehouse. This assured us that every item we purchased was received from vendors and that it was in our possession. Furthermore, we divided the numerous departments of a hospital into groups, and scheduled the export of department inventory to the job-site as the group became readily available.

 

By doing so, First Gulf International is able to chronicle warehouse logistics. We have revolutionized the logistics process and are capable of accelerating the shipping of equipment to job-site.

The Shipping & Logistics Management Plan

First Gulf International has a large, professional and fully managed warehouse in Houston, Texas. The warehouse acts as a temporary storage hub for all the medical equipment and furniture that is being shipped to us from manufacturers all across the United States. It is from there that we receive and divide equipment into groups in preparation for international shipping and ultimate installation in the hospital.
