Specialty Freight Services by Medical Equipment Movers

specialty-freight-servicesSome types of freight require a higher level of care than others, including but not limited to medical devices and equipment. These are high-value machines that, if damaged during transport, can result in major asset losses for your business. 

To prevent such an outcome, medical companies and hospitals require a concierge-level approach, otherwise known as specialty freight services. Transporting medical devices is a delicate process that requires certain accommodations, and poses restrictions that could lead to delays if not proactively addressed. For this reason, you deserve white glove-level treatment and a carrier that understands the nuances of transporting medical cargo.

The team at Pyramid Logistics has been handling medical equipment for over 25 years. When you work with us, you gain a robust set of white glove services, as well as a logistics partner that’s deeply familiar with protocols and restrictions associated with medical transport.

Specialty Freight Services for Medical Equipment

With their high value and delicate nature, transporting life-saving medical equipment from point A to point B presents unique logistical challenges. To keep your mind at ease and ensure that your medical cargo arrives unscathed, specialty freight providers like Pyramid Logistics use a range of white glove methods while keeping strict delivery requirements in mind. 


White Glove Services for Sensitive Medical Devices

Your costly and fragile medical equipment deserves the utmost care and handling, to prevent damage and lost assets. But through a white glove approach, those concerns can be quelled:

Careful Packing & Handling

When transporting sensitive medical devices and equipment, it’s essential to call on a specialty freight services provider with white glove capabilities. 

At Pyramid Logistics, our medical equipment movers provide extra care and attention every step of the way, from careful packing and protective pad-wrapping to climate controlled trucks for heat-sensitive goods. These additional measures ensure proper functioning and actively prevent damage to your assets during transport.

Climate Control & Vibration Reduction

Any trusted specialty freight services provider understands that devices like MRI machines, CT scanners, and other imaging equipment call for delicate handling. Knowing this, teams such as Pyramid Logistics take additional precautions:

  • Securing assets with sturdy anchors and tie-downs
  • Monitoring shock and vibration during transport
  • Maintaining strict temperature and humidity controls

With these preparations, you can trust that your high-value medical assets will reach their destination on time and without a scratch. Another consideration is the often strict deadlines for medical deliveries, which we’re deeply familiar with here at Pyramid Logistics.


Meeting Strict Medical Delivery Requirements

Safely delivering your medical assets is only one side of the coin, with the other side concerning compliance with certain regulations and restrictions. 

To keep the process moving and avoid delays, specialty freight services strictly adhere to any protocols attached to the delivery. This comes in the form of following protocols, navigating oversized loads and restrictions, and proactive monitoring throughout the delivery process.

Adhering to Regulations & Protocols

Safely transporting medical devices typically requires compliance with certain regulations and requirements, such as being Hazmat-certified, and having climate-controlled trucks for pharmaceutical deliveries. You must consult a specialty freight services provider that’s licensed, bonded, and insured for full compliance, to prevent any delays. 

Navigating Oversized Loads & Restrictions

Another consideration is whether the shipment is oversized, which comes with its own set of restrictions. Road restrictions, bridge laws, and oversized load permits are a few core examples, all of which need to be navigated seamlessly to plan optimal routes. 

Other concerns that feed into route planning include road closures and police details. By sorting out these constraints ahead of time, logistical partners like Pyramid Logistics can safely maneuver the caveats of oversized medical equipment.  

Proactive Monitoring & Communication

Specialty freight movers go beyond transport regulations by proactively preventing disruptions on the road. Monitoring weather and traffic, for example, helps to rapidly respond to any potential delays. 

This is accomplished through real-time tracking of your medical shipment, as well as direct communication – providing the peace of mind knowing that your devices and equipment will arrive as planned.
