Medical Device Producers Express Interest in Purolator USA's Express Service and Customer Service

Purolator USA’s flexibility has made it a “carrier of choice” for many in the medical device industry.

Jericho, NY (Vocus) September 30, 2008 -- All medical devices share a critical need regardless of their complexity or purpose. They need to move quickly and accurately through the supply chain. For medical devices traveling to cross border destinations, the supply chain can be even more vexing, since most devices incur additional regulatory oversight. Purolator USA has established regulatory solutions that are used for medical devices traveling between the U.S. and Canada, along with express delivery options and customized logistics plans. Purolator USA’s flexibility has made it a “carrier of choice” for many in the medical device industry.

The U.S. medical device industry generated revenues in excess of $75 billion during 2006, and there is a strong market for U.S.-produced devices around the world. In Canada alone, U.S.-produced devices account for more than half of that country’s medical device imports.

“Transporting medical devices involves a wide range of shipping and regulatory requirements that are unique to this industry,” says Purolator USA President, John Costanzo. “While every product crossing the border is subject to specific regulatory and compliance issues, medical devices must comply with a whole separate category of mandates. This is in addition to the unique shipping needs of many devices, ranging from temperature control to fragility to critical delivery deadlines.”

Purolator USA offers medical device businesses an exceptionally high degree of customer service, as well as expertise in navigating all cross border regulatory issues. “That’s what we’re really known for,” says Costanzo. “Every Purolator USA customer works with a ‘client relations representative’ whose sole responsibility is to understand their account’s business inside and out, and works with a logistics expert to develop a logistics plan that meets each customer’s unique needs.”

In addition to expertise in navigating regulatory hurdles, Purolator USA offers several solutions with regard to delivery options within Canada and the United States. “We have access to deep distribution networks within each country, which is a huge benefit for customers, especially for a manufacturer who must reach a customer in the northern regions of Canada, which are quite remote,” Costanzo says.

“Purolator’s distribution networks run much deeper within Canada than most logistics providers, enabling Purolator to bring medical devices across the border, bypassing time consuming stops at distribution centers, and deliver the products to their final destination with minimal delay,” he added.

The U.S. medical device industry is projected to grow by as much as nine percent annually for the next five years. As such, the need will also grow for logistics providers who are experienced in the unique needs of transporting medical devices.
