  2. Distributor's Value to the VA Supply Chain

    National Veteran Small Business Coalition Members wrote the following description of the value small distributors bring the Department of Veteran Affairs supply chain.

    The goal of a robust “supply chain” should be to manage the life cycle of product acquisition and logistics from requirements development thru to actual care giver or patient product usage.  In laymen’s terms delivering the right product at the right time, to the right location, at the right cost. As no one entity, government or business can do this by themselves, multiple layers or players are required.

  4. GoVets Shipping Partner - Refund-Retriever

    GoVets will begin showcasing specific partners and services to make our customers aware of benefits available to us that others can also take advantage of for their business or other needs.

    In this post, we will review Refund Retriever.  GoVets ships thousands of packages each month, and there are many cases where our carrier partners, FedEx or UPS, are not able to deliver their packages to the intended destination on time.  During normal times (except during COVID-19), they have service-level agreements that they must maintain, and if they do not deliver on time, parcel shipping fees are credited back to the account. This does not happen very often, otherwise, they would go out of business. However, there is a small percentage of orders that become non-compliant with their SLAs and this is where Refund Retriever comes in...
