Medical devices are unique from other types of shipments because of the urgent, sometimes critical, need for timely and seamless delivery
Jericho, NY (Vocus) October 8, 2009
Medical device manufacturers can have 100 percent visibility and tracking capabilities of their shipments - even in most remote regions of the U.S. and Canada - by taking advantage of Purolator USA's extensive distribution networks and technology capabilities. Purolator, a leading provider of cross border logistics is increasingly recognized within the medical device industry as a preferred shipper because of these capabilities.
"Medical devices are unique from other types of shipments because of the urgent, sometimes critical, need for timely and seamless delivery," says Purolator Director of Sales John Jensen. "Frankly, there is no room for error when it comes to medical device logistics, and manufacturers are increasingly turning to Purolator because of our proven track record."
Purolator recently introduced a new client portal to customers, which offers significant enhancements to its tracking capability. Through the client portal, customers have complete oversight of their shipment's chain of command as well as to customs documentation and transit updates. The portal also offers customers access to their billing and shipping histories.
Medical devices manufacturers also recognize Purolator's seamless delivery capabilities throughout Canada. Unlike most cross border logistics providers, Purolator maintains an extensive distribution network throughout Canada. This means that a shipment is able to travel from the U.S., across the border and to its final destination without ever leaving Purolator's scope of control. "Our customers never have to wonder where their package is," says Jensen. "With Purolator, visibility is always just a mouse click or two away."
Purolator's presence throughout Canada also means that there is very little interference from "blackout areas" that may affect other carriers that do not have the same level of investment in their Canadian routes. Regardless of where a medical device is headed - even to the most remote regions of Canada - a manufacturer will have 24/7 tracking capability.
Purolator maintains a team of customer service representatives who develop customized logistics plans that take into account each customer's unique needs. Medical device manufacturers, because of their specific logistics needs, are able to take advantage of Purolator's wide range of delivery options and flexibility.
