Resilinc, a provider of AI-based supply chain mapping and disruption monitoring services, and UPS Healthcare, provider of comprehensive commercial and clinical logistics solutions, have partnered to serve the healthcare industry by locating and delivering critical medical items and equipment through The Exchange at Resilinc.
The Exchange at Resilinc is a cloud-based platform for the healthcare industry where hospitals interact with vetted peer organizations to locate and then initiate the process of borrowing or exchanging items listed on the platform. It is due to launch in mid-April and is available at no cost for hospitals and healthcare organizations.
“As a result of the Coronavirus, our teams have collaborated with strategic partners across the healthcare supply chain ecosystem to help hospitals at the frontlines of the pandemic facilitate faster, more efficient resolutions to medical supply imbalances and shortages,” said Bindiya Vakil, CEO and founder of Resilinc. “We are proud to work with UPS to get critical medical products and supplies carefully and rapidly deployed to hospitals where they are needed.”
UPS enables hospitals using Resilinc’s exchange platform to leverage their existing logistics and transportation infrastructure and commercial agreements to trade and ship items conveniently. UPS recently joined efforts with the White House Coronavirus Taskforce, state health agencies and FEMA to provide supply chain services for the agency's distribution of personal protective equipment and necessary materials throughout the US, including respirators, N95 masks and gloves for healthcare workers across the country.
“UPS is pleased to be involved with The Exchange at Resilinc in providing expedited transportation of supplies to healthcare facilities,” said Wes Wheeler, President of UPS Healthcare. “We recently introduced new technology-enabled solutions for critical healthcare needs to offer improved package tracking, special handling protocols and enhanced contingency management to ensure the highest levels of speed, visibility and reliability.”
