Logistics is a critical part of any industry but more so for pharma, where the supply chain is highly complex with many players involved. In the pharma business, the speedy movement of goods is fundamentally important because lifesaving drugs must be delivered on time. The supply chain is also a critical component in the pharma industry, due to the temperature sensitivity of specific products.
As Indian pharmaceutical companies prepare to make their supply chain more robust, a new threat has emerged - counterfeiting. This is a major issue as it affects the national reputation and brand image of Indian companies. To curb this, the government is planning to make the implementation of barcoding mandatory for pharma goods which are being exported. How are you going to meet these demands and challenges whilst building a robust, integrated and cost-effective supply chain network?
Attend the 2nd Annual SCM Pharma India 2011 conference which will bring together 100+ of the most influential Indian pharmaceutical Supply Chain Directors and their key team members to tackle critical challenges in the supply chain.
