National Logistics Group announces “trunk stock” solution

Reduces risk and cost of rep-managed inventory

Providence, RI, June 9, 2014

TForce Critical today announced its effective and cost efficient solution to the “trunk stock” challenges many medical device makers and suppliers face. The new service, which has been successfully implemented with existing customers, leverages TForce Critical’s forward stocking locations to help businesses warehouse, manage and deliver product in compliance with state and federal regulations.

The solution consolidates inventory formerly held by reps, by hospital consignment and in uncontrolled storage units into forward stocking locations with 24/7 delivery and will-call pickup capabilities.

An existing customer said, “TForce Critical’s expertise and network of warehouse locations has reduced the time our sales reps spend processing and making deliveries. It has also reduced risks associated with product expirations and the amount of resources we invest in inventory that cannot be reliably tracked.” Customer reps have embraced the new solution, saying it’s more efficient and easier to navigate.

Brenda Sturm, TForce Critical Director of Logistics, said, “Medical device and medical supply companies have to comply with a vast set of regulations. They need to ensure they are delivering unexpired product, accurately tracking inventory, handling recalls and managing inventory costs. Our secure, controlled, forward stocking locations offer a more convenient and efficient solution for managing inventory in compliance with regulations.”

TForce Critical is both an asset and non-asset based third party logistics provider specializing in forward stocking and white glove, over the threshold solutions to the medical industry and other marketplaces. Headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island, the ISO 9001 2008 quality certified company offers nationwide delivery through more than 300 locations that provide forward stocking and final mile deliveries in a single call solution.
