Summary

A comprehensive exploration of the massive changes in the biopharmaceutical supply chain that have occurred during the past 10 years, and predicted future trends, Biopharmaceutical Supply Chains: Distribution, Regulatory, Systems and Structural Changes Ahead documents the specific impacts of these changes for key players in the supply chain.

Based on interviews with industry professionals, the book presents an overview of the key challenges and discusses how leading biopharmaceutical companies handle these challenges. It exposes the underlying structures that support the biopharmaceutical supply chain, focusing specifically on distribution—the point at which manufacturers release a finished product to the time that it is administered, and the complicated set of channels that exist between these two points. This overarching view of the supply chain provides an important piece of intelligence that can inform business strategy for life sciences manufacturers and distributors and help them achieve success in this industry.
