UPS opened a new 208,000-square-foot healthcare-compliant distribution and warehousing facility in New Jersey.
The multi-client hub is the first in UPS’s network to offer medical device companies comprehensive logistics services such as autoclave capabilities, instrument inspection, and surgical set replenishment, among other services.
It is strategically located near UPS’s air hub at Philadelphia International Airport, and is fully integrated into UPS’s overall transportation and field stocking location network, and provides an end-to-end solution for healthcare customers seeking increased inventory visibility and control of their supply chains.
This network also makes it possible for healthcare manufacturers and distributors to reach more than 80 percent of U.S. hospitals within four hours, according to a press release on DOTmed.com.
“UPS continues to strengthen our integrated network globally to help manufacturers lower costs, streamline inventory and meet increasing demands,” said John Menna, UPS Vice President of Global Strategy, Healthcare Logistics. “In the U.S., building out a best-in-class, comprehensive service that integrates a loaner hub with our vast FSL and global transportation network raises the bar and further demonstrates our commitment to the healthcare industry.”
