The healthcare industry relies on an efficient supply chain. Any delays or disruption could be costly and affect lives. With 30 years' experience, FedEx Express offers customised healthcare solutions to ensure that medical products are delivered on time and within budget, whatever and wherever the need.
An unreliable supply chain has the potential to cost a business dearly. This is particularly true in the healthcare industry, where one size doesn't fit all because every customer has different needs. With state-of-the-art technology, bespoke services and international availability, FedEx Express offers customers unparalleled insight into, and control, of their critical and valuable shipments.
Whether transporting pharmaceuticals, laboratory samples or clinical trials, FedEx Express has 30 years of experience in the healthcare industry, and can provide everything that is required to ensure a package arrives when, where and how the client wants.
SenseAware, powered by FedEx Express, is a first-of-its-kind service that uses state-of-the-art sensor technology to provide near real-time access to a shipment's vital statistics while in transit. By accurately monitoring a shipment's location, temperature, exposure to light, humidity and barometric pressure, SenseAware devices offer customers unmatched visibility and insight into their cold chain. This capability is particularly beneficial to healthcare organisations where a shipment arriving in pristine condition is less of an expectation and more of a cast-iron necessity.
Specially designed to solve common issues in healthcare supply chains, SenseAware gives customers the utmost insight and control when transporting an item for which a slight environmental variation could end in severe degradation.
If shipments are high-value, time-critical or temperature sensitive, FedEx Priority Alert provides around-the-clock support, advanced shipment monitoring, personalised notification and, when necessary, customised package recovery. By designing flexible solutions to meet each customer's needs, FedEx understands the importance of bespoke, tailored solutions. Additional options such as dry-ice replenishment, gel-pack exchange and cold storage are available with FedEx Priority Alert Plus.
The FedEx Express offering covers all areas including packaging solutions, as well as end-to-end temperature controlled ground and air transport. The company optimises its customers' supply chains, starting by designing the best operating solution, offering a choice of the best packaging and ending with how fast a product needs to be shipped.
