Cost effective commitment

Rico are fully committed to embedding cost and service efficiencies. We work with you to consolidate medical deliveries in the most efficient way, saving you time and money. Our medical couriers tailor the most efficient option for each client’s needs. For instance, working to arrange blood transport couriers that also deliver consumables across the network, when possible. 

Blood Transport Services

Organ and blood transport is one of the most essential services in the medical courier industry. Strictly following the guidance of our own DGSA, Rico’s medical couriers operate within all time and safety requirements of blood transport.

We understand the importance of safe, accurate and time-sensitive blood transport. Rico are dedicated to delivering vaccines, blood, organs, and blood products quickly and efficiently. 

We offer our clients fully flexible medical delivery solutions. These include routine collections based on pre-set routes and timetables, as well as urgent nationwide deliveries actioned within 1 hour of order placement. 

Fixed Route Services

Rico offers a fixed route medical courier service, providing daily blood transport from GP surgeries, private clinics, and phlebotomy labs. Our expertly trained medical couriers operate on fixed routes and timings, 7 days per week (including holidays), and are equipped to safely handle all pathology and specimen deliveries. 

We set mutually agreed-upon times to collect the sample, with a 15-minute window on either side of collection, and return them to one of our more than 40 wholly owned service centres across the nation. The result is a reliable service that you can always trust to deliver on time.

Secure Real-Time Tracking

Rico provide real-time delivery tracking, available for all of our medical courier services. Stay updated as our couriers collect, transport and deliver medical goods. You receive complete transparency throughout the delivery process with live updates from start to finish.

Advancing your medical logistics tools

All contract managers are provided with a set of Management Information metrics, including KPTs. Should you want to conduct further analysis, we provide exception codes that allow you to chart traffic congestion and the surgery not being ready to hand over the sample.

These metrics allow you to plan your service use and work more efficiently with surgeries. We also offer a comprehensive change of management processes so that we can best support new or amalgamated surgeries.
