Healthcare Solutions

Moving parcels safely, securely and speedily while driving up profits and service
The healthcare industry is under pressure to meet regulatory compliance and transformational imperatives in the supply chain, and there is a need for high service levels to drive up loyalty and profitability.

Pharmaceuticals, biotech, veterinary or medical equipment deliveries all require custom solutions. Our network power and mix of bundled healthcare solutions can ideally meet the unique requirements of the industry – from low-cost, low-speed to high-speed, high service:
  • Daily collection from MCC-compliant plants or warehouses
  • Scheduled, daily long haul to our regional cross-docking facilities
  • Courier/express parcel delivery from regional warehouses into the hands of recipients
The Solution
Crossroads’ network power and mix of bundled healthcare solutions can meet the unique and diverse requirements of the industry – from low-cost, low-speed to high-speed, high service. Our network components include:
  • Daily collection from your MCC-compliant plant or warehouse
  • Scheduled, daily long haul to our regional cross-docking/ warehousing facilities
  • Courier/express parcel from regional cross-dock/warehouses into the hands of recipients
The Problem
The ability to move parcels from one point to another, with the precision this industry demands, takes high SHEQ levels and network power. One’s distribution capacity needs to be considerable to provide such wide-ranging services as daily scheduled long haul and courier/express parcel deliveries, with the visibility and control that the industry requires. Pharmaceuticals, biotech, veterinary or medical equipment deliveries all require solutions customised to their needs. Unique controls, checks and security measures must be managed and monitored round the clock. Only through better visibility can you command supply chain flow, but without highly reactive abilities your distribution channel simply can’t be trusted. As a logistics partner who can provide warehousing as well as daily distribution to over 450 towns, we present an opportunity for increased agility, cost-effective scalability and reliability in healthcare supply chains.
