Intra-company logistics, or healthcare transportation – the enterprise-wide movement of physical materials, such as specimens, pharmaceuticals, supplies, print, mail, equipment, and more – is the logistics layer that enables the clinical layer to function most efficiently and effectively.
A strategic intra-company logistics network allows you to re-assign the same dollars you are spending today (and often less) to a new, better-designed, systematic transportation operation that can be leveraged to generate returns of 10 to 50 percent of spend.
MedSpeed is a dedicated steward of the interests of our customers. A central component of this commitment – and also of the value we provide – is our analytical process called Transportation Evaluation and Design (TED). Through TED, we develop solutions that leverage logistics and standardize.

What Our Customers Say
Tom LubotskyChief Supply Chain Officer / Advocate Health Care
It’s not just about healthcare transportation. It’s about a broader picture around looking at the whole workflow of our key area of focus that relies and is dependent on transportation to be successful.
Sam TereseCEO / PCL Alverno
In the last year, we have grown by 25 to 30 percent. To be able to accomplish that, really took a partner like MedSpeed.
Martin GrablePresident & CEO / Community Blood Center of the Carolinas
The relationship between MedSpeed, the hospitals and CBCC is, in essence, a triad. It is much more a partnership than it is a transactional relationship.
Executive LeaderSupply Chain / UPMC
“Our biggest problem as we acquire systems that seem to be geographically matched to what we need, is how to create concentric hubs and match it together in our main hospital system. We have outpatient facilities and hospitals and will add more as we continue to grow. Transportation touches all these facilities. We had to integrate it to maximize it. We even integrated the pharmacy.”
Rob Handfield, PhDBank of America University Distinguished Professor of Supply Chain Management Co-Director Resource Cooperative, Supply Chain / NC State University
“MedSpeed has gone well beyond the basics in building a solution and value proposition that addresses the entire need set of the healthcare supply chain. They are a continuous cost improvement engine that also eliminates risk and improves clinical stakeholder satisfaction in the modern healthcare environment.”
