The demand for hospital, laboratory and pharmacy services is driven by advances in medical care and technology. The profitability of individual companies depends on efficient operations, since many hospitals and labs offer similar services. Labor is often the single largest operating expense usually equal to more than 40% of revenue. To remain healthy in the current economy, management at all levels in the medical industry must face the brutal facts and act decisively. Hospitals and labs who have long had in-house drivers are now willing to consider out-sourcing their logistic needs… And those utilizing a courier now are asking for competing bids. Now is the time for a careful review of all costs and a willingness to explore new options. Providing these services in-house is often the most expensive choice in transportation needs. Outsourcing of a non-core function like logistics to a competent medical courier can result in substantial savings to a hospital system or lab, while maintaining quality patient care.

ICS gives you 100% attention to your transportation while allowing you to focus more of your time and effort in other areas. Let us do the driving. It’s all that we do, and we do it well.
