“MedTrans is a differentiator for us,” said Brennan. “Within the healthcare supply chain, delivery is the last critical piece in getting much-needed products to our customers. And what Medline has found is that when we have more direct control over all aspects of our supply chain, we see better results.”
Brennan said the pandemic forced a re-examination of supply chain strategy by health systems and providers and drove an urgency to make improvements at the foundational level and up. Supply chain optimization is now a priority throughout the industry, with Medline connecting customers to data analytics, inventory tracking and other tech solutions — along with providing operations and logistics solutions including MedTrans.
“MedTrans is one real, human touchpoint among the many emerging, high-tech supply chain solutions,” said Brennan. “Our own drivers engage with customers on a regular basis, which is a huge advantage because it gives us the opportunity to read early signals coming from frontline staff from and build trust.
When weather, mechanical and other unexpected circumstances require custom problem solving for inventory and delivery, the relationships built between MedTrans and our customers stand front and center.”
It’s another way Medline helps healthcare run better.
