A Day in the Life of a Medical Courier
On a typical day, a medical courier will be required to follow precise instructions to transport an item or items from one location to another. During pick up as well as delivery they will need to ensure that all documentation matches up and that they get signatures from clients using signature capture technology. When transporting items they will need to make sure that the items are secured in the vehicle and stored according to required health and safety standards.
By implementing courier tracking technology we give our customers the opportunity to check their orders. This is achieved by equipping our courier vehicles with GPS tracking units in order to provide precise location information not only for our customers but also to help our couriers navigate effectively.
If you have ever used our courier services then you know that you can easily track your delivery using our ETA Monitor Board as well as check order details and account information. We are committed to ensuring the convenience of our services and expect that our couriers will be willing to go above and beyond for their customers.
