While battling the ongoing effects of the pandemic, one of the nation’s largest providers of post-acute healthcare services needed assistance with an urgent PPE shipment valued at $3 million.
The client, who operates both facility- and home-based post-acute services in 36 states and Puerto Rico, was planning a resource intensive freight move to distribute 167 pallets of critically needed PPE to its network of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, home health, and hospice agencies.
After experiencing some initial setbacks using a competitor’s shipping program, the client was hesitant to entrust such a large-scale move to another provider.
The life-saving PPE would need to be moved in less than a week, creating additional urgency around securing proper transportation. Additional resources would also be needed to ensure the high value shipment was closely monitored.
