The Impact of Emerging Trends





Quality assurance is critical in all industries, but in the pharmaceutical supply chain, the cost at stake is higher than most. As the industry shifts towards high-precision, low-volume therapies, pharma shipments become more sensitive, more expensive, and there are significant repercussions for temperature excursions or delayed deliveries. With the global pharma cold chain expected to reach $18 billion in spending by 2022, the impact of errors during transportation can result in compounded inefficiencies and increased costs throughout the entire supply chain, which ultimately affects the patients relying on these treatments.

Today, more rigorous transportation and storage requirements, such as advanced temperature control, sophisticated packaging, and additional monitoring and tracking requirements, are shaping the pharma distribution industry. The supply chain’s complexity is expanding; there is growing local and multi-jurisdictional regulatory oversight and increasing data requirements – all while precise delivery windows are shrinking. These shifting industry dynamics have led to significant changes in the way many pharma products are handled and highlight the industry’s need for high-quality specialty logistics solutions. Specifically, these solutions and their providers must address three critical drivers of change to maintain quality control: increasingly innovative therapies, expanding regulations, and the continued globalisation of the supply chain.
