Healthcare distribution tends to be a high-volume, low profit-margin business that must maintain product reliability, security and integrity – as well as specialized value-add services – to increasingly widespread healthcare organizations. Economies of scale and efficiency of operations are critical to gain or maintain your competitive advantage in the marketplace.
Yet, too many healthcare manufacturers and distributors operate their distribution out of warehouses that are outdated, inefficient, or disproportionally scaled to accommodate current business requirements. For these companies, it is crucial to address potential issues and constraints before they impact profitability, service levels and, ultimately, patient outcomes.
Sedlak’s professional advisors are among the world’s most experienced and recognized experts in identifying and implementing opportunities for improvement in complex, fast-moving distribution operations.
