CUSTOMER Bound Tree Medical is a national distributor of prehospital emergency medical supplies, equipment, and pharmaceuticals for EMS providers, including First Responders, EMTs and Paramedics. From everyday disposable items to extensive capital equipment, they offer thousands of products across all clinical categories. Bound Tree offers valuable services to increase efficiency and accuracy, reduce liability and positively impact their customer’s bottom line. Services such as inventory and asset management, online ordering for controlled substances, and emergency disaster support can save time and reduce overall costs.

NEED Six times a year, Bound Tree Medical has need of a coordinated exclusive move of Fire Department Supplies and Medical Supplies from a central point to various destinations. Coordination is an essential need through the Captain of the local fire department in the destination districts.

TEAM SOLUTION Team Fresno is ready and waiting for the call from their customer with an exclusive use vehicle available for the move. After pickup of the equipment in Visalia, CA which requires palletization, the freight is moved via the exclusive vehicle to ensure the rescue necessities arrive direct to the destination with no mixed freight nor multiple stops. The products require a delivery window of six to ten hours from pickup to delivery and the target delivery date/time is met on time, every time. Essential to the success of the move is Team Fresno’s constant coordination with the Fire Captain at the delivery point.
