Transportation and distribution processes must be carefully considered to ensure the timely and safe delivery of healthcare items. This has proved particularly true amid the Covid pandemic, during which dedicated logistics for healthcare products has emerged as a leading industry specialisation.
Transporting essential items for public safety, such as medical supplies and equipment requires expert planning. IFC Global Logistics and Warehousing have extensive experience in handling and storing fragile goods and can provide various transportation and storage solutions alongside specialist knowledge surrounding the pharmaceutical-specific regulations involved.
A range of transportation solutions are available, each designed to meet our clients’ specific needs.

What’s more, IFC offers complete visibility when tracking items in transit, which can be communicated via our web-based cargo tracking system.
Once arriving at one of IFC’s modern storage facilities, items can continue to be safely and securely stored. What’s more, it is at this stage that a range of value-added services can help ensure that all products are of high quality, with FIFO control and quality management available upon discussion. Similarly, the options of multi-carrier integration and national e-parcel services can help healthcare businesses to receive their items rapidly.
