COVID-19 Communication | Updated March 24, 2020
In order to ensure we are managing our expenses related to the reduction in business resulting from COVID-19, the Supply Chain team has identified some key actions we must take to reduce expenses as an organization:
1. Order cut-off times will be one hour earlier than normal
- 2:00 pm cut-off time based on the time zone where the distribution center is located
- Post-cut-off orders – notify customer service after you place the order if the item is needed to ship out the same day
2. Consolidate orders
- At a minimum, consolidate orders to one order per day, per clinic\
- Where possible, reduce the number of days during the week orders are placed
3. Urgent orders
- Continue to order as needed through the normal process
4. Consolidate returns
- Consolidate returns in one box
- Process returns twice a month or monthly where possible
5. Minimize the use of Express shipments
- Due to anticipated lower volumes, we are at risk of contracted rate increases from FedEx.
Your support of these actions will ensure that we are more efficient with our Supply Chain dollars while still servicing our patient needs. Please ensure that your teams are aware of the aforementioned and taking these actions.
Thank you for your support of these efforts. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Supply Chain leaders at email@example.com.

COVID-19 Communications | Updated March 16, 2020
COVID-19: Personal Protective Supplies Alert (March 16, 2020 - 1:00 PM ET): Please be advised that we are working diligently to secure masks and ship them out to each Hanger Clinic. We expect multiple shipments to arrive to our warehouses over the next few days and we will automatically send them out to you. You do not need to take any action. Also, note, we are working on other supplies to include hand sanitizers, latex glove, toilet paper, and disinfectant wipes. We will provide more detail as available.
COVID-19: Supply Chain Update (March 16, 2020 - 1:00 PM ET):
Dear Hanger Clinic:
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to present itself in locations throughout the U.S., we are focused on protecting the health and safety of our clinics, employees, and patients. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation, specifically, guidance and updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). As a direct result of our commitment to safety, we are taking several proactive steps to help limit any exposure to the virus, while also minimizing any impact to our operations.
Safety: We have equipped our supply chain employees with the facts about COVID-19 and are asking them to follow simple, but effective steps to keep themselves, the products, and our facilities safe. Additionally, you may wonder, “Is that package safe to touch?” FedEx recently informed us that the WHO has answered that question here. They’ve made it clear that there is low risk in handling a package.
Product Availability: We are closely monitoring our inventory levels and in constant communication with our suppliers. Some shop supplies such as masks and exam gloves are currently on backorder; affected items are noted as such on our website. Most other items are unaffected at this time.
Shipping: All shipping and delivery times are currently running as normal. Meanwhile, we have developed safety and business continuity plans in the event any of our warehouses experience a coronavirus incident.
For questions concerning our plans around COVID-19 and operational status, please contact your Supply Chain Management Leader or call customer service at 1.800.288.5570 ext.3.
The health and safety of our clinics, employees, and patients is our top priority. We thank you for your understanding as together we navigate this unprecedented time.
