Parcel management firms Dawson Healthcare Solutions and ParcelShield joined forces in a merger announced this week. The company will be managed through ParcelShield Holdings, LLC, and will go to market under the ParcelShield brand, the companies said.
The merger brings together Dawson Healthcare Solutions' customer experience and logistics management expertise with ParcelShied's artificial intelligence-based predictive analytics technology platform, the companies also said.
"Historically, pharmaceutical package management can be full of variables that our teams track and manage around the clock to prevent delays and losses," Doug Dawson, CEO of ParcelShield Holdings, said in a statement announcing the merger. "The AI technology developed and used exclusively by ParcelShield constantly plans for and responds to these variables and will help us devote even more focus to the high-touch support and service we provide to our healthcare customers. This boosts on-time parcel deliveries and further mitigates costly medication losses."
