Should You Outsource Your Pharma Supply Chain?
Have you thought about taking the bold step of outsourcing some or all of your pharma supply chain? If so, you won’t be the first company to consider it. When I visited the UPS Worldport facility in Louisville last fall, I had the opportunity to tour the company’s healthcare logistics facility, which houses products for more than 120 pharmaceutical clients. With over 500,000 square feet of storage space, cages with high-level security features, and freezers with temperatures as low as -20°C, the facility is suited to meet the needs of pharmaceutical companies. But is outsourcing this function the best option?
