Customs Brokerage, Logistics, and the Healthcare Sector

If 2020 has taught us anything, it is to value the healthcare facilities around the world. When dealing with a global pandemic, there is nothing more important than our health, and nations across the globe found themselves rushing to put their hands on right medications, treatments, and medical resources to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is estimated that globally, $1,295 billion dollars are spent on medications every year. Healthcare providers heavily rely on time-sensitive freight deliveries – which can be, on many occasions, a matter of life or death. When dealing with worldwide healthcare regulations, it is critical to ensure that products are compliant and that each freight delivery meets the different healthcare facilities’ specialties, products, and systems. Thus, it is essential that you choose the correct customs broker to assist you in this process.

Why are Customs Brokers Important to the Healthcare Industry?

Pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and healthcare products are highly specialized. Not only that, but the healthcare industry is an industry that deals directly with people’s lives. Time is of the essence when working side-by-side with healthcare providers. There are many different factors to take into consideration when it comes to medical freight: speed, accuracy, cost-saving, regulatory compliance, and access to vital data are only a few of them. The 2020 global pandemic has shown us how quickly regulations can change during emergencies, and how fragile healthcare systems can be.

This is why it is so important to have the correct customs broker by your side. With hundreds of customers across the country, Thompson Ahern can serve the healthcare industry better than anyone else. When working with healthcare facilities, we understand that regulations, products, and systems can change widely, which is why we work directly with them to design efficient and effective processes tailored to their best interests.
