Crane undertakes Express Final Mile Delivery of Ventilators to Ireland’s hospitals


Crane Worldwide Logistics is supporting the Coronavirus pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way in which many services operate as the challenge to provide medical supplies around the world becomes a focus for many responsible manufacturers and service providers.

Wisetek, is a global solution provider for IT Asset Disposition, Reuse & Manufacturing Services and a valuable client and partner to Crane Worldwide in Ireland. Recently, Wisetek handled a shipment of ventilators from China and managed the complete assembly process of parts to complete the finished product in Ireland. Hospitals were in urgent need of the ventilators to support the increased number of victims of the Coronavirus.

Around the world, Crane Worldwide Logistics is supporting the Coronavirus pandemic to support medical equipment supply chains. As soon as the ventilators were fully assembled, Wisetek needed a partner to deliver the product with a sense of urgency to the hospitals throughout Ireland that were lacking essential equipment.

“As a one stop shop solution for manufacturing, fulfilment and lifecycle management services, Wisetek approached our Ireland team to partner with them in the final mile delivery of the ventilators as they needed a responsive and flexible partner to ensure deliveries were made on time,” explained Chris Deans, Managing Director, Ireland
Crane Worldwide Logistics Ireland.

“As Ireland began to lock down under the guidance of the Irish Government, the critical infrastructure workers in our warehouse and operations in Ireland continued to focus on the important work of distribution and transportation of medical supplies to ensure medical supplies were reaching hospitals on a timely basis. Our dedicated drivers and operations team worked with a sense of urgency to ensure that deliveries were made as soon as the product was fully assembled.”

Providing a flexible and reliable service with a keen sense of urgency to Wisetek, Crane Worldwide successfully distributed the first deliveries of the assembled ventilators directly to the hospital wards.

“As critical infrastructure workers, we are proud to keep supply chains moving and support our clients with urgent freight requests. We will do all that is possible to help you achieve your logistics goals in these uncertain times. At Crane Worldwide, we believe in trust, collaboration, and teamwork,” concluded Chris.
