Pharma’s Super Heroes Of Innovation
This article discusses innovation in the BioPharma supply chain – while it does not focus on cold chain specifically, it applies quite well to our supply chain challenges:
It is an era of innovation in an age of outsourcing. We are fortunate to reside in this flourishing industry now riding the tide of the times. And the supply chain, to add even more adventure, is becoming Pharma’s super hero of innovation.
But like any super hero, the drug development and manufacturing supply chain struggles with a dual identity. One – the traditional personality – is conservative, steadfast, and an order-taker. The other – which Pharma claims it wants contract development and manufacturers (CMOs) to become – breaks out into innovation, new technologies, and ingenious solutions to big challenges.
Can CMOs serve Metropolis in both capacities? Is Metropolis – our community of Pharma – serious about working supportively with outside partners for innovation and technology? Are there models for this partnership?
