Picking out your perfect medical device is only part of the process. Once you have made the selection, your device needs to make its way from the warehouse to your office. No matter how big or small the particular device is, a strict process must be followed to ensure that your device is inspected, approved and prepared for shipping so it gets to your office ready to work.
While all Medical Device Depot customers can track their purchases through the “My Account / Order Status” link on the site, buyers can always contact customer service with any questions or concerns. Getting the right shipment in pristine quality isn’t something to compromise on when it comes to medical equipment. You want to ensure that everything you order is up to code; with Medical Device Depot, you can expect just that. While you might typically expect a private shipping company, UPS no longer limits its services to goods like birthday presents and clothing orders. In September 2015, the United Parcel Service opened a new health-care-compliant distribution and warehousing facility in New Jersey. This step will help support the growth of UPS customers, and it will also support the growth of UPS itself.
The new facility is the first in UPS’s network to offer medical device companies comprehensive logistics services. The site will feature autoclave capabilities, instrument inspection, surgical set replenishment services, and more. Because the site is located right next to the UPS airport, health-care manufacturers and distributors can reach more than 80 percent of U.S. hospitals within four hours. This helps provide the best possible care to patients in a timely matter. No matter how hospital owners approach the logistics of a given situation, they can never plan for the unpredictable. That’s why an urgent shipping service like this one could come in handy.
While Medical Device Depot will continue to offer its reliable shipping and international shipping policies, we are always keeping our eye on the future to see what the best solutions are for our buyers and their practices.
