ICAT Logistics - Urgent Supply & Demand

Challenge: Most hospitals utilize the just-in-time method of inventory control. If hospitals have higher than expected demand, additional supply must reach them immediately. Companies need a logistics provider that goes inside hospitals, uncrates new equipment, crates old equipment, and returns the old unit to the company regardless of the time of day.

Solution: At a New Jersey hospital, three patients were on support at the same time. The hospital needed a heart pump unit immediately to ensure all three patients would receive necessary care. ICAT had a courier at the heart pump manufacturing facility within an hour to pick up a unit and arrive at the hospital without delay.

Results: The close relationship with ICAT increased the heart pump manufacturer's shipping reliability and provided customers with inside deliveries, resulting in positive impacts on customer service, shipping costs, and sales. Since the heart pumps arrived at the hospital without delay, three lives were ultimately saved.
