In support of its long-term strategy to support medical device manufacturers, UPS opened a new healthcare-compliant distribution and warehousing facility in New Jersey. The multi-client hub is the first in UPS's network to offer medical device companies a suite of logistics services such as autoclave capabilities, instrument inspection and surgical set replenishment, among others.
The 208,000-square-foot facility is healthcare-dedicated and strategically located near UPS's air hub at Philadelphia International Airport. It is fully integrated into UPS's overall transportation and field stocking location network and provides an end-to-end solution for healthcare customers seeking increased inventory visibility and control of their supply chains. This network also makes it possible for healthcare manufacturers and distributors to reach more than 80 percent of U.S. hospitals within four hours.
