Shipping solutions for Healthcare & Life Sciences

Precise transit times for blood samples are vital. The extreme fragility of equipment like EKG machines makes careful handling imperative. Clinical tests must be kept below -50 degree C from pick-up to delivery. The integrity of packaging hazardous materials must be guaranteed. That is why we provide temperature-controlled solutions.

This is an industry where products are highly regulated and controlled, and where proper documentation, accurate labelling and specific commodity description are absolute mandates. FedEx can assist by negotiating the complexity of your international supply chain — easing customs clearance, consolidating and monitoring shipments and even helping with distribution and service after the sale has been made, ensuring that all the pieces are working in harmony.
