DHL launches Life Sciences logistics solution
DHL Supply Chain has launched a new final mile service logistics solution for the medical device sector. In a statement issued today (18 October), DHL said the solution “consolidates field inventory into single locations and uses quality management systems to provide better control and traceability of valuable products”.
Tim Slater, CEO of DHL Supply Chain Life Sciences, said: “This solution draws on our Life Sciences expertise in managing critical lifesaving products and our global capability to organize mission critical deliveries into complex environments. 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.”
