While healthcare continues to be a dynamic and evolving industry, one thing is for certain. As economic factors and policy changes continue to surface, healthcare providers like yourself will continue to be tasked to do more with less.

Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are tasked with the constant struggle of reducing supply chain costs without impacting patient care. They likely aren’t even thinking about the amount of spend on direct shipments to their facility from vendors.

Freight fees have become a profit center for many medical product suppliers. Direct shipments, especially overnight deliveries, often come at a hefty freight expense that’s typically higher than the market average.

Hospitals have been adopting freight management for many years, but it is still a relatively new concept for ASCs.  Over the last few years, more than 2,000 ASCs have begun working with a freight management provider to save an average of 30-50% per shipment.*

  • Understand the ins/outs of freight management
  • Identify key considerations when choosing a freight management provider
