Branching Out

The concept of hiring contract partners to undertake specific roles and responsibilities can seem rather daunting at first – there may be concerns about loss of control or interrupted workflows when work is conducted outside the central core of the business. However, when executed well, outsourcing can lead to more control and smoother processes thanks to the specialist knowledge and flexibility offered by independent experts.

Take, for instance, the use of third-party logistics providers (3PLs) such as GEFCO Forwarding, Brink’s Life Sciences and DHL Global Forwarding. Without them, manufacturers would be faced with the enormous task of sourcing, maintaining and managing an entire fleet of vehicles or warehousing functions before they could even consider shipping their first product. This is clearly neither viable nor cost-effective, and so hiring another firm that specialises in the actual transportation of goods is the most logical solution.

Tightening Your Supply Chain Against Counterfeits

World Courier

As today’s global pharmaceutical supply chain grows increasingly longer and more complex, each link provides added opportunity for counterfeiters. While pending regulatory changes promise to tighten the supply chain with respect to production and distribution entities and new packaging technologies will make the identification of counterfeit products easier, the logistics of global distribution remains a weak link. How can the pharmaceutical shipper ensure the security of the supply chain over thousands of miles and extended periods of time when the product is no longer in his possession?
