Pharmaceuticals, Life Sciences and Healthcare warehouse operators and their respective supply chains face the usual business-critical challenges of product supply, storage and movement but with the addition the products they handle can be a matter of life and death. Whether these be prescription drugs, vaccines or medical equipment these businesses need to rely on robust and optimised operations at all times.
Faking it! “It is probable that the market for counterfeit pharmaceuticals is worth $400 billion a year and the World Health Organisation estimates that up to one million people die annually from counterfeit drugs. Operators who are called upon to transport, store and deliver such vital supplies therefore must be super vigilant in guarding against loss through theft and the infiltration of fakes into the supply chain.”
Mike Yarwood, managing director of loss prevention at TT Club
According to the European Union Intellectual Property Office, (EUIPO) fake drugs cost the EU €16.5bn. “Counterfeiting of products is a growing problem, intensified by the rise of online commerce. The need to ensure a safe and genuine product has led to a number of companies re-evaluating supply chain processes to prove e-pedigree.”
David Pierpoint, Managing Director UK Life Sciences & Healthcare, DHL Supply Chain
Managing a fast-moving supply chain demanding robust regulatory compliance and avoiding counterfeit goods is perhaps the most business-critical element in the successful running of a Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare business. And, what with the Covid situation, these challenges are only likely to increase and become ever more demanding.
