GEFCO transports 1,000 medical beds weekly for Hillrom in Europe to cope with COVID-19 demand
GEFCO is transporting around 1,000 medical beds weekly to destinations across Europe for Hillrom, a leading European manufacturer of medical devices and surgical equipment.

Recently, GEFCO has been managing urgent deliveries throughout Europe to help Hillrom cope with particularly high demand for medical beds and devices during the COVID-19 crisis.

Every week, a dedicated GEFCO control tower in Rennes, France, coordinates and tracks deliveries of more than 1,000 beds, air mattresses and other accessories from Hillrom’s production plant in Pluvigner to medical centers, clinics and hospitals in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

GEFCO has been working with Hillrom for several years, supplying its Pluvigner factory with parts and raw materials from France and other European countries. GEFCO also delivers demonstration medical devices from the factory to hospitals and retirement homes.

Elsewhere in Europe, GEFCO recently chartered planes to transport 64 tons of medical supplies from China to Slovakia and the Czech Republic for another medical customer, PENTA. The company is determined to keep delivering on its promise to be “Partners, unlimited” by helping customers find supply chain solutions during these challenging times
