Pre-Event Planning
Topic: 
Transportation Procurement
Organization: 
MedShare International

MedShare International is a nonprofit organization that seeks to improve healthcare through the efficient recovery and redistribution of surplus medical supplies and equipment from U.S. hospitals, manufacturers and distributors. MedShare shipments are carefully tailored to the needs of recipient organizations worldwide. Transportation services are procured when needed from the cheapest carrier at the moment, resulting in high costs and low service quality. This project consists of developing a long-term strategy for procuring transportation services that will enable the organization to maximize its resources, taking into account its current locations and future growth strategy. Contractual agreements with strategic shipping partners and collaboration with other similar organizations for procuring transportation services are evaluated.
