 Distribution & Logistics 


Delivering accuracy, timeliness, responsiveness and more

Owens & Minor has been proudly moving medical and surgical supplies from manufacturer floor to patient bedside for more than 128 years. We are the nation’s leading distributor of national name-brand medical and surgical supplies—and the industry’s authority on distribution and logistics.

While our scope is national, 55 distribution centers across the country enable us to provide highly responsive, personalized customer service at a local level. Unlike other distributors, we are not manufacturers, and our brand-friendly position allows us to offer healthcare facilities the broadest range of product choices.

For decades, Owens & Minor has provided customers with comprehensive, time-tested solutions that drive costs from hospital supply chains and increase cash flow. We seamlessly blend state-of-the-art technologies with our deep understanding of inventory management and logistics expertise—adding value to every transaction.

At Owens & Minor, our Distribution Services move more than 220,000 branded medical-surgical products from 1,600 suppliers through distribution centers across the country to 4,500 healthcare provider customers. And we do it all with a 98 percent customer satisfaction rate.

CostTrackSM is an Owens & Minor innovation that lets you identify the costs for each activity in your supply chain—then analyze and adjust the factors that affect these costs.

For suppliers/manufacturers, we provide third-party logistics and business process outsourcing through our division, OM Healthcare Logistics

Becker’s Hospital Review, September 21, 2011

“…There's no question that price is a critical factor when you make a decision on selecting a distributor. But this is only one of several important factors that come into play. If the product, particularly in health care, isn't delivered at the right location and at the right time, which is no small accomplishment unto itself, then a decrease in price doesn't compensate for the risks associated with either of these two situations occurring. So we pride ourselves on the service we deliver. We get the right product to the right location, at the right time, and at the right price, and that service aspect is pretty critical. We're price-competitive, but we're service-oriented.”
