A 35-bed acute-care facility located in southern Kansas knew their supply chain needed help. Due to current internal processes, the hospital did not have any freight data to provide Triose prior to launching their program.
Within the first two years of their integrated freight program, and with no data provided at the time of program launch, Triose helped the client realize a 29 percent cost reduction on their inbound freight program. The following year, when the client began breaking out freight charges from vendor invoices, their year over year savings increased even further, resulting in an overall cost reduction of 42 percent. By altering their internal process, the client – and Triose – gained visibility, creating additional cost savings.
Triose has experience with healthcare facilities of all sizes ranging from nationally integrated delivery networks to rural critical access hospitals. Our team of logistics experts are dedicated to improving every client’s supply chain operation, regardless of size, freight volume or available data. And while breaking out freight expenses from vendor invoices can lead to additional savings, it is not a prerequisite.
Although there is no one-size-fits-all solution for hospitals, the concept of transforming their care delivery model is a step in the right direction. A step that begins with their supply chain. A step that begins with Triose.
