How Do Medical Couriers Work with Pharmacies?

Posted on August 7, 2022

When people think of medical couriers, they often think about hospitals and medical labs. While it’s true that medical couriers transport samples, documents, and equipment to those facilities,  they are also invaluable to pharmacies. At Fleet Couriers, we work with pharmacies to deliver to multiple types of customers, including nursing homes, hospices, assisted living facilities, and private homes. Some pharmacy customers prefer to have their prescriptions delivered because it is more convenient. But others need deliveries because they are unable to go to the pharmacy themselves.

Here’s how medical couriers and pharmacies work together to deliver medications and supplies.


Safely Store and Transport Medications

Certain medications need to be delivered within a specific time frame and under particular conditions. It is important not only to deliver those items safely but also to transport them safely as well. We train our drivers at Fleet Couriers according to our customers’ requirements so that all medications and equipment arrive at their destinations in a safe and usable state.


Plan Optimal Delivery Routes

In the interest of delivering medications on time, medical couriers also help pharmacies plan optimal delivery routes. With many customers in various facilities and private homes, it is essential that all medications reach the right locations and patients at the right time. Planning out the best delivery route ensures that everything is delivered and nothing is overlooked. A medical courier also has the flexibility to set up regular routes and complete rush or one-time deliveries.


Tracking and Guaranteed Delivery

There are many big online prescription delivery services, but they often use delivery systems that are less reliable than a medical courier. Those companies keep their focus on pulling in as many customers as possible. Ask anyone, and they will tell you stories of late or missing prescriptions. When you use a trained medical courier like Fleet Couriers, you have the advantage of our real-time tracking and guaranteed delivery services. You also have access to our same-day delivery when a patient needs a medication on short notice.
