What Is a Medical Courier?

A medical courier is a specialized transportation service that handles the secure and timely delivery of medical items such as samples, specimens, laboratory results, medications, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, and documents. If your facility needs to ship an item or have an item delivered, a medical courier will be your go-to person.

A courier is trained to move items from one place to another. These locations may be hospitals, clinics, laboratories, pharmacies, or research facilities. A courier may use specialized containers, temperature-controlled packaging, and secure transportation methods to ensure all shipments meet safety protocols.

Medical couriers are essential to the healthcare system because they move medical items that are crucial to patient care. You can count on a courier to have extensive knowledge of routes, regulations, and best practices when it comes to transporting medical items.
