Omaha’s Economic Development as a Midwest Transportation Hub

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Omaha, Nebraska, is known as the Gate City of the West because of its early ties to the transcontinental railroad, the Union Pacific headquarters, and its prime location on the Missouri River. Moving goods from the central location of Omaha to fan out to the rest of the States is a positioning strategy for the Omaha Courier Service. As a transportation hub from the Midwest to the West, Omaha has remained faithful to its pioneer roots of accommodating the shipping needs of the entire United States through water, rail and air transport.

Omaha has an economy built on agriculture and trade. Early settlers required dry goods and food stuffs to last the winter in the northern plains. Indians and mountain men necessitated a place to sell their furs, pelts, and skins from the winter traps. Eastern mercantile stores demanded a steady supply of furs for the fashion industry. All of these needs converged in the western trading posts. Omaha was well positioned to become a commerce capital for trading raw materials to the East and homesteading supplies to the settlers moving to the West.

Medical Courier Services Are Vital for Proper Medical Waste Disposal

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Medical Courier Service by Capital ExpressMedical waste removal is a necessary component of hospital life, best served by a medical courier service like Capital Express. Hospitals have medical waste in the form of bodily fluids, organs and tissues, syringes, gauze and bandages, surgical gloves and used instruments, and anything else that has been tainted with blood or fluids. Instead of just tossing them in the trash as a common household does, hospitals are regulated by Federal and State mandates for the proper disposal of contaminated items. Medical courier services have trained their employees on the proper procedures for handling and transporting medical waste, including the federal and state paperwork required to track the waste from its source to its destination.

The Federal Government has appointed OSHA (United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration) to administer the requirements for medical waste disposal. Examples of these requirements are that contaminated needles must be placed in a container that is puncture proof, leak proof, must be color coded and labeled and must not be accessible in a way that a person could be punctured while handling the container.  The labels must be adhered to the container in a way that makes them very difficult to remove. The labels themselves must be fluorescent orange, with the labeling in large letters and contrasting color. Each medical product has a different procedure and requirement for the disposal of the article.

Along with the container types and the labeling information, the Department of Transportation regulates the tracking paperwork for the disposal of medical waste. The medical courier service is responsible for completing a tracking document that details the nature and magnitude of waste being removed. The tracking documents must be signed by both the shipper and the recipient of the medical waste. The signature verifies the correct procedures have been followed in packaging the waste, marking, and labeling the waste according to the DOT regulations.

Capital Express Delivers Flu Vaccines

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

Capital Express continues to be amongst the leading courier service providers in the country.  Every year, the medical industry relies on large, experienced, regional couriers and medical delivery companies to facilitate the distribution of flu vaccine throughout the country once that year’s vaccine has been manufactured. Last year however, new attention was drawn to distribution as people formed lines to wait for their H1N1 vaccine.
 
H1N1 is known as the swine flu, and was proven to be approaching pandemic proportions. This caused a huge spike in demand for the new vaccine that protects against this particular flu strain. There were shortages in many areas; making the transportation of the vaccine to clinics and vaccination locations critically important.
 
That is where Capital Express comes in. As an experienced medical delivery company, we have for years helped in making sure that all flu vaccines are accurately and timely delivered to inoculation destinations.  We are working 24/7/365 to ensure that all the inoculation locations are going to receive their flu Vaccine as prescribed.
 
As of this writing, Capital Express has delivered approximately 4,235 shipments consisting of over 50,820 viles of H1N1, influenza and pneumonia vaccines 11 states. We are working tirelessly to continue distributing the vaccine as fast as it can be manufactured and received in our 7 central US distribution centers. The work of medical couriers like this helps to make sure that there is a minimal gap from when the vaccine is made to when it can actually be administered to a patient. This is making the services of Capital Express an important link in the critical process of trying to slow the spread of illnesses across the country.

Patient care above all else!
