Powering Confluent Medical with Custom Logistics Solutions
When a company experiences growth, it’s often met with excitement and growing pains. This was certainly the case for Confluent Medical. Founded over a decade ago in Costa Rica, Confluent initially embarked on a modest venture in the region with a focus on producing a single product. They set up a small site with a small, clean room. However, as they delved deeper into the market, they soon grasped the vast potential for growth within the region.
Roberto Carvajal, the Customer Operations Director for Confluent Medical, speaks about the evolution of their operations. He shares how the initial setup was streamlined and centered around a single product line. However, as they started realizing the enormous growth opportunities in the region, the operations began to scale. With the expansion came challenges, and the need to find a solution became evident.

Confluent’s Growth & Logistical Challenges
The primary challenge that Confluent Medical faced was the transformation needed in its operational philosophy. With growth, the simplistic logistics and operations that may have worked for a small setup began to show their limitations. An expansion in operations often demands a rethink of how business is conducted, how products are distributed, and how to manage larger teams and operations.
