Did you know that your business or healthcare facility may be overpaying for shipping products and equipment by as much as 100%? TRIOSE—a supply chain solutions, logistics and courier company—says that could be the case. With transportation playing a vital role in the supply chain, a qualified freight moving company can help control shipping costs and ensure safe, secure, on-time deliveries. To that end, TRIOSE offers everything from large freight shipments and courier management to consulting services and moving equipment within the same building.Melanie Sullivan, national account manager for TRIOSE, explains how the company helps healthcare facilities save big bucks on shipping and why the company isn’t your typical transportation or courier service provider.
Q. WHY ARE SOME FACILITIES GROSSLY OVERPAYING FOR SHIPPING?
A. The problem starts when surgery centers, dental offices, physician clinics or other facilities make healthcare or non-healthcare purchases from suppliers, then those suppliers add shipping fees because it’s a revenue stream for them. Many organizations pay high rates because they feel like it’s the cost of doing business, but paying for high markups should not be a cost of doing business.
Q. HOW DO YOU HELP SOLVE THE PROBLEM?
A. We bring visibility to customers. A lot of businesses, even multimillion dollar organizations, do not have the visibility they need into their shipping. They need to work with a good business partner that will provide that for them. Any company can get a discount on list prices or secure a good rate by going directly to a shipping company, but added value comes from partnering with a company like TRIOSE that looks out for customers’ best interests.
