Utilising a combination of its own fleet of vehicles and TPL companies, Slade Health provides exceptional same/next day service of its high value, time sensitive products to its national customer base.  Critical to achieving these standard is the management of TPL providers to ensure that service levels are met and where they are not, implementing recovery solutions to ensure no impact on patient care.
