Three long-term priorities to ensure a resilient healthcare supply chain for manufacturers

The failure of the global supply chain in response to the outbreak of COVID-19 caused acute shortages of essential frontline supplies and personal protective equipment, causing fundamental concerns about the sustainability of the health system.

As a New York-based company, Dukal felt a personal and human need to be part of the solution. 24/7 communication with some of the largest healthcare systems in the country, our company worked tirelessly to protect PPE inventory while offering transparency and trust amid a healthcare crisis. This constant dialogue helped Dukal successfully serve our end user, not only in New York but nationally, as the virus and need spread. We are incredibly proud of Dukal’s high level of execution and humbled, seeing firsthand the time and effort from all levels of the supply chain (i.e., factories, freight partners, distributors, and providers). Our combined dedication allowed our communities to continue to be served, despite the most strained national health crisis of our lives.

With supply chains still at the forefront of healthcare discussions, three long-term priorities are taking shape, providing future-thinking manufacturers a competitive advantage while working to ensure a resilient healthcare industry.
