Time-Critical Logistics for the Health Care Industry

Every single day, patients, their families, doctors, and hospitals depend on vital health care products and equipment to save lives. But what happens if that vital shipment containing an organ transplant doesn’t arrive on time and perishes before it can be used? What happens if the equipment you need for a life-saving operation is delayed a day? The health care industry obviously needs to put their trust into a logistics company that takes special care to protect their shipment and make sure that it arrives on time, every time. When it’s a matter of life and death, you can rely on AFP Global Logistics to get your health care shipment there when it counts.

What Shipping Methods are Offered for Time-Critical Health Care Shipments?

Although in many cases air freight shipping is the best option when it comes to needing a time-critical logistics solution, it’s not the only choice you have. With Next Flight Out (NFO) services, AFP Global Logistics can ensure same-day delivery nationally for essential shipments like organ transplants and other perishable medical products. However, if time permits, ground shipping can be used as well with express trucking, two-driver teams, and same-day direct drive services. No matter which methods it takes to get your time-critical health care shipment to its destination on time, you can trust that we know the right method to get it there before your deadline.
