Do you still have issues getting enough PPE supplies for your staff and guests?
Do you still have a requirement for a Care Home friendly PPE supply company?
Our company is partnered with UK Meds Ltd, one of the biggest suppliers of online pharmacies in the UK. We’re providing a solution whereby we can use our warehousing facilities in Nottingham to break down large orders and distribute smaller quantities by bringing together the requirements of multiple customers in one place.
We have direct relationships with manufacturers in the UK and abroad, so we’re able to bridge the gap between the smaller requirements of care homes and the preference for sellers to deal in very large volumes.
We have supply lines in the UK and overseas, predominantly China but also Indonesia, Malaysia and Portugal. All of our supplies are fully certified and we will ensure that the certification and, if required, pictures and samples can be provided as well.
We probably have the stock you require immediately available but, as daily stock moves very quickly, if we are unable to supply immediately, then we can reserve incoming stock with an identifiable lead time. Our preference is to be able to place recurring orders (e.g. a 7 day recurring requirement) as this can then be scheduled by both the manufacturer and the logistics company. It also allows us to ensure long term pricing and surety of supply. If the requirement is too small or too niche on its own we will combine it with other orders until we get enough to secure the goods at a sensible price.
For supplies already here in the UK we can generally work off a PO from an established business or public sector organisation to reserve stock; for overseas orders, typically a deposit is required with the remainder being payable after inspection and acceptance.
You will be aware that stock availability is extremely volatile at the moment and it’s important to be able to place orders for UK stock very quickly as typically every consignment with excess units sells out on the day it becomes available. However, there is also a regular supply so stocks can always be fulfilled at some point.
