Not Your Traditional Medical Courier
- Achieve maximum business value
- Drive standardization and manage utilization
- Leverage your logistics framework
- Eliminate waste and redundancies
- Limit risks and liabilities
- Gain reliability and predictability
Healthcare Transportation, or Intra-Company Logistics is a calculated method for organizing the movement of physical materials to achieve greater operational efficiencies, more effectively utilize scale, eliminate redundancies and centralize services.
Healthcare and Laboratory Transportation can be one of two things: A low value, commodity function with the sole purpose to simply courier materials between facilities or a strategic and competitive intra-company logistics asset that can be leveraged to provide value and savings.
Healthcare and Laboratory Transportation Networks are the framework that allows your operations to function timely, smoothly and efficiently. Working with a partner is not a decision to make lightly or without a comprehensive understanding of your current transportation operations.
