Supplier participation drives inbound freight savings. If your vendors aren’t on board, then you won’t benefit, even if you have a good shipping rate. OptiFreight® Logistics works with you to identify suppliers already shipping to your healthcare facility and secures participation in your freight management program. This is essential for lowering your inbound direct shipping costs.

Our comprehensive inbound freight program handles everything, from small parcel to international and large freight, and operates in multiple healthcare channels: laboratories, hospitals, surgery centers, pharmacies, home health organizations and physician offices.  Our team, with industry leading expertise, will:

  • Identify and optimize the best shipping modes
  • Advocate with suppliers on your behalf
  • Help you understand your freight spend by providing advanced analytics, available online 24/7
  • Save you money on shipments you’re already receiving today
