Medline Canada announces new medical supplies distribution center in Alberta

Medline Canada is doubling its warehouse space by opening a new 160,000-square-foot distribution center north of Calgary. This expands Medline’s supply chain network and strengthens its ability to serve healthcare providers in Western Canada. The facility will start shipping orders in January 2024 to meet increasing demand for medical supplies and equipment.

Leading distributor and maker of medical products, Medline Canada Corporation, announced today that it will double its present warehouse space in the province by opening a new 160,000-square-foot distribution center in Rocky View, Alberta, which is located just north of Calgary.

Over the previous five years, Medline Canada has increased its market share, product options, competencies, and operational presence across the country through the expansion of its supply chain network. The company’s agility and ability to respond quickly to consumers in the Western region will both be strengthened by the new distribution hub located in the West.

Our daily goal is to support clients in achieving the greatest results possible in any healthcare environment. From coast to coast, we make sure clients have the appropriate products and solutions on schedule,” stated Medline Canada President Ernie Philip. “We are meeting the increasing demand in the West by expanding our network capacity, and we are also laying a stronger foundation for future growth throughout our acute, primary care, and long-term care business lines.”

With one of the largest inventory capacities in Canada, Medline can guarantee that a variety of hospitals, clinics, senior living facilities, pharmacies, and retail establishments can get supplies and medical equipment.

In addition to its eight locations—including a 600,000-square-foot, LEED® certified national distribution hub in Guelph, Ontario—Medline now has more than one million square feet of warehouse space nationwide thanks to this new distribution facility in the west. These locations are strategically positioned to provide logistics, warehousing services, and demand planning.

Philip went on, “Every province is facing pressure on healthcare, so we’re responding with more ways to support our customers.” “We’re enhancing operational excellence and empowering our employees to have the greatest possible influence on our clients’ care throughout the whole healthcare continuum by becoming more nimble, resilient, and efficient.”

In January 2024, Medline Canada intends to begin shipping its first orders to customers from the new location.
