Adapting to safely and quickly meet the demands of a rapidly-changing world

  • The pharmaceuticals industry is facing significant challenges as it strives to quickly develop the resilient, agile digitally-enabled supply chain of the future while complying with stringent global regulations
  • Global supply chains account for nearly 25% of pharmaceutical costs
  • The US imports around 80% of active pharmaceutical ingredients and 40% of finished drug product 
  • The majority of European pharmaceutical companies have their products manufactured in India with 70% of the underlying active ingredients coming from China
  • By 2023, shippers and distributors, as well as manufacturers, will have to comply with regulations under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act, which requires any company wishing to sell pharmaceuticals in the US to facilitate product "traceability"
  • Visibility across the end-to-end pharmaceuticals supply chain is critical, not only to enable companies to track and trace goods but also to improve time-to-market, increase margins and ensure product safety
  • Following an accelerated stabilize-recover-rebalance roadmap will help you to safeguard your supply chain and prepare your business for future disruptions
