DHL targets medical sector final mile

DHL Supply Chain has launched a final mile solution for the life sciences medical device sector that “consolidates field inventory into single locations and uses quality management systems to provide better control and traceability of valuable products”.

“This solution draws on our Life Sciences expertise in managing critical lifesaving products and our global capability to organise mission critical deliveries into complex environments,” said Tim Slater, CEO of DHL Supply Chain Life Sciences.

“It is replicable, provides high visibility of inventory both inside and outside the hospital and is fully compliant globally with the rigorous standards required. It facilitates a reduction of capital commitment for inventory through just-in-time availability to hospitals, removing the requirement for just-in-case storage of medical devices.”
