Part of a business’s concern in any facet involves money, but budgeting considerations need to match priorities. Saving money does play a role in medical shipping, though the main priority is a quality provider to ensure that materials get delivered safely and viably. Such efficiency is the best way to save money in the long run, so materials don’t get lost or ruined (and then need replacement plus another shipment). While medical shipping is an important area to prioritize quality over price, here are some ways to remain attentive to costs as well:
✯ Consolidation. In thinking about the various materials you need for which purposes and when, we can help you consolidate both objects and time. We can ship through truckloads (or less than truckloads), in the air, or over the ocean, depending on the kind of equipment and time-sensitive concerns. Consolidation requires a long-term view, which is beneficial to your company in other ways as well. While some medical needs may arise spontaneously (if more donor material is needed, or a vaccine is required), many can be planned for.
✯ Map shipments. We needn’t be the only ones with access to where your shipment is and when; your business can be part of the process. While communication in each step of the way until delivery is a priority to us, you can also track interactions along the way by charting dialogue with customer service, accessibility and accuracy of GPS data, in-transit locales, and appointments. You can match these data points with how much your shipment weighs, the distance it’s traveling, and fees involved. This level of involvement creates direct communication and transparency.
✯ Questions. Feel free to contact us at any time with questions or concerns, which will help stave off unnecessary confusion regarding price or any other element of the process.
