Pharmaceuticals are a modern miracle. Ethical pharma, i.e. drugs available with written instructions from a doctor or dentist, have made it possible for billions of people to live healthier, happier, longer lives. And, thanks to the pharma supply chain, it’s possible to make life-saving medicines accessible whenever—and wherever—patients and doctors need them most.
In that way, the pharma supply chain is a kind of modern miracle as well. Pharmaceuticals are made by manufacturers, travel to wholesale distributors, and are then stocked at retail stores and pharmacies before making it into the hands of patients. It’s a highly efficient process that saves lives—if you have the right technology at your disposal.
Medical products are indispensable; pharma manufacturers have a big responsibility to the public. Should pharmaceutical companies fail to deliver products in a timely manner or ship medicines that are contaminated or expired, the consequences can be extremely serious, for patients and the pharmaceutical industry.
