Did you know? CuraScript SD can provide white glove courier service on critical care medications during the holidays

01 | Holiday Season

CuraScript SD knows the holiday season can be stressful and there are a lot of things to consider not only in business but in personal lives as well. With so much to think about and consider, we would like to give some helpful information regarding shipping practices and how you can ensure timely and safe delivery of your products.  

02 | What to Consider

Every company has different policies, and guidelines for shipping practices, so it is important to find out as much information as possible before placing orders around the holidays. Most websites have shipping policies and special holiday shipping schedules posted. If you are ordering around the holidays you may want to communicate to a CuraScript SD Account Manager to confirm any possible holiday delays.  

Remember in the month of December most shipping companies cannot guarantee typical shipping times without extra fees. Due to demand and high volume shipping delays are almost certain on some items. In contrast, items that are guaranteed to arrive should be reviewed to ensure they can be delivered without incidence.     

03 | CuraScript SD Shipping

We know that receiving medications you need for patients is important and that delays on packages could have terrible repercussions. During the holiday season all refrigerated items will still arrive next-business-day regardless of shipping volume. With this in mind, all orders should be placed after considering delivery date. If a package is ordered Wednesday and there is a holiday Thursday, those packages will arrive on Friday which is the next business day. Office closures, early departures, long weekends etc. should be reviewed before placing an order.  

Non-refrigerated/non-critical items will ship via standard shipping and should be ordered in advance in order to not experience delays. Please note that delivery schedules can vary based on what day of the week a holiday may fall.    

04 | Working Together

CuraScript SD will work closely with all practices who may need strategic planning for deliveries. Please contact us before placing your order so we can help guide you through the best course of action for your needs. We work to eliminate waste and provide efficient and effective solutions for shipping.
