Last Mile Distribution
Riders has expertise in managing vehicles and logistics in rural and remote areas to ensure that medicines and health supplies are distributed quickly and reliably in the ‘last mile’. This distribution can also include motorcycles to take the distribution right down to community level.
This includes a logistics system to distribute pharmaceuticals and supplies down to the primary facility level, usually from the district/state/regional levels of the health system. At these levels, there is usually a lack of a formalised and reliable system and facilities are often responsible for collecting their supplies, or else the higher level is in charge of using their limited and not-always-functioning vehicle(s). This is a major offering in Nigeria, where we distribute anti-retroviral (ARVs) and HIV-related commodities in the South-South and also for rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) and Artemisinin-based Combination Therapy (ACTs)
