Every day, direct freight, large and small, come in and out of your facilities. Medical supplies. Patient records. Equipment. Some shipments come from your distributor, but for many facilities, more than half come direct from manufacturers and suppliers.* And with each direct shipment comes freight charges—shipping fees on top of product costs; charges that add up. Think of it as a basic cost of doing business? Think again.
As a leader in freight management we:
- Save you 30 – 50 percent per shipment on average+
- Manage more than 14 million shipments per year+
- Serve more than 27,000 healthcare locations+
- Provide visibility into freight spend through advanced analytics
- Save you money on shipments you’re already receiving today
Analyzing direct shipping costs may not be top of mind, but your hospital, healthcare system, surgical center or other acute facility could be missing real freight savings by ignoring these expenses. Because all those small charges add up to real costs. You can’t avoid the need to ship, but you can avoid paying too much when you do.
