Medical Shipping: The Special Considerations

Shipping Medical Supplies and Equipment Requires Special Processes and Skills.

When searching for a shipping company or courier for vital medical and pharmaceutical supplies, you need to find people who understand the unique and critical nature of these packages. You also need assurances and tracking along the transportation process to keep those waiting for these medical supplies up to date with information on pick-ups and delivery. The Delivery Authority has planned for the requirements needed for shipping medical supplies and has invested in systems and training that make us the best option for medical and pharmaceutical shipping needs.

Appropriate Vehicles for Medical Shipments & Trained Drivers

Large medical machines like X-ray machines, electric lift chairs, wheel chairs and large dental lab equipment necessitate vehicles that are equipped to safely transport machinery of its size and value. The Delivery Authority has a wide-ranging fleet for transporting medical equipment, as well as drivers who are trained to handle this type of cargo. We also have smaller vehicles that can rapidly transport small courier packages, including same day prescription drug deliveries and small supply packages for hospitals. Read more about our vehicle fleet.

The Delivery Authority is OSHA and HIPPA trained using Integrity Medical Courier Services for medical and prescription deliveries.


Because dependable medical supply shipments are imperative to health care facilities’ ability to take care of patients, we track our drivers from pick up to delivery with live GPS. Real time Bill of Lading (BOL) texts or emails confirming receipt of the medical goods to be shipped, and Port of Discharge (POD) texts or emails confirming delivery of the packages in good condition are standard for our medical package shipments.

The Delivery Authority is also the only shipping service company with the proprietary Cycle of Service process, which ensures that you’re kept informed along the entire shipping process and that you’ll receive outstanding customer service.

When researching medical equipment shipping services, be sure to hire a transportation company that understands the requirements of this industry and has designed processes to ensure your deliveries get where they need to go on time and perfect condition. Learn more.
