PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) - SHORTAGES AND COVID-19
While many healthcare offices have been experiencing operational challenges for many weeks, the supply chain has been facing new pressures and changes as numerous factors have impacted PPE stock, pricing, and shipments.
Skyrocketing Demand: Many additional healthcare workers and the general public have created extreme demand.
Limitations on Supply: PPE products that may have been sourced overseas now face labor issues.
Freight Costs: Imported items are often airfreighted into the USA with limited availability and capacity.
Shipments and Backorders: Varying work and travel restrictions have impacted most schedules.
Non-Cancellable / Non-Returnable PPE Items: This facilitates an adequate supply to many more healthcare workers.
Thank you in advance for your patience during these extraordinary circumstances. We will monitor the Coronavirus situation and may update our FAQs as necessary in order to meet government requirements and keep our customers and employees healthy.
We sincerely hope for the health and safety of you and your loved ones. Thank you for your continued support.
