Owens & Minor Launches New Service Offering
With the launch of OM HealthCare Logistics (OM HCL), Owens & Minor is now providing cGMP compliant, third-party logistics, and business-process outsourcing services to healthcare product manufacturers.
According to the company, OM HCL has been established using a configurable and process-oriented infrastructure based upon technologies from RedPrairie, JDA Software and CDC Software, hosted with Dell Perot Systems.
The company said that OM HCL’s comprehensive, yet specialized, supply-chain outsourcing solutions include warehousing, cold chain management, reverse logistics, repackaging, sample management, kitting and order management solutions that are designed to enable manufacturers to optimize costs, ensure regulatory compliance, streamline operations and maximize profits.
Craig Smith, president and CEO of Owens & Minor, said: “With OM HealthCare Logistics, we are extending Owens & Minor’s in-depth logistics experience, technology capabilities, and industry footprint to healthcare product manufacturers by offering a new, full-service solution to address the needs of an increasingly complex supply chain.
“With this service, we can provide a full outsourced supply-chain management option to a wide variety of manufacturers, including those who have traditionally shipped their products directly to healthcare providers. Our service effectively leverages newly available technology, industry expertise and our own knowledge of the healthcare industry to help manufacturers streamline operations, improve efficiency, and optimize costs.”
