Patient direct logistics

USL Distribution has a dedicated team focussed on managing and distributing Patient Direct (PD) orders. When a District Health Board prescribes the required products for a patient, USL manages the process, generates orders, and delivers to patients at home.

Currently USL is managing the orders and products on behalf of the DHB’s for over 28,000 patients nationwide.

USL direct deliveries

USL Distribution operates a small truck that services the greater Auckland region. The USL vehicle is utilised to deliver large palletised orders, hospital beds, physio tables and other large items to public hospitals, medical centres, accident & medical centres, aged care facilities, physios, sports teams and other primary health providers. Having our own truck allows USL Distribution the flexibility to deliver shipments door-to-door to clients in a timely manner and to place them in a designated area as specified by the customer.

“My role is to make sure that our customers get the correct delivery as specified - on time. Some of the items we dispatch make a huge difference in the life of customers, so it goes without saying that attention to detail and efficiency are prerequisites for working here.”
