Key Takeaways

  • Disruptions in the pharmaceutical supply chain directly affect firms' planning process around MOH (months on hand) coverage, and inventory needs are becoming increasingly difficult to predict.
  • Pharmaceutical supply chains are particularly susceptible to certain challenges, including transportation delays, regulatory issues, temperature control events, and demand, supply, and safety stock imbalances.
  • Best practices for pharmaceutical shipment location and monitoring are steadily moving away from reactive monitoring (such as passive data loggers) to proactive monitoring (such as real-time location and temperature tracking devices).
  • Real-time visibility solutions and insights help keep pharmaceutical shipments safe and compliant while building supply chain resiliency.
