Pharmaceutical & Medical Devices

Leading pharmaceutical and medical device companies are seeing the supply chain as an opportunity to improve service levels, e.g. same-day-shipment. More than any other industry, service is of the upmost importance. Any change must pass the strict regulatory requirements of a growing list of institutions. These aspects have direct and indirect effect on the supply chain - in distribution, transport, and warehousing.

Trends & Challenges

  • Regulatory guidelines, such as the GMP for operations and logistics and the revised GDP guidelines for distribution must be applied consistently.
  • Serialization and track & trace are being used more often to prevent drug counterfeiting and uncontrolled sales and the grey market.
  • Supply chain security, the internal and external safeguarding of transport and handling, is growing in importance.
  • Sales & operations planning is becoming more significant, particularly for personalized medications.
  • Continuous cold chains must be ensured for APIs, bulk, and finished goods throughout the entire manufacturing process and distribution.
