Creating a Safe, Reliable Pharmaceutical Supply Chain

Creating a Safe, Reliable Pharmaceutical Supply Chain

Partnering with MD Logistics—an experienced U.S.-based 3PL—and global freight forwarder Nippon Express can provide a wealth of benefits to your global pharmaceutical supply chain.

The Challenge

The biggest challenge within the life sciences and pharmaceuticals industry has always been how to safely distribute products within their own unique temperature and handling requirements.

As more and more temperature-sensitive biologics and personalized medicines and therapies enter the market, the question of how to safely ship, store, and distribute to the consumer remains a top priority within the industry.

The Solution

Working with logistics professionals who have a proven track record in delivering solutions within the life sciences and pharmaceutical industry is imperative to ensuring not only the integrity of your product, but your overall supply chain as well.

Partnering with a U.S.-based 3PL provider who places an emphasis on quality excellence, such as MD Logistics, and a global freight forwarder, such as Nippon Express, who has built a solution aligned with retaining product integrity, can provide a wealth of benefits to your global supply chain.

Global network. Nippon Express operates a network of state-of-the-art facilities aimed at keeping the life sciences and pharmaceutical supply chain moving forward. Together, the company operates a network of 34 GDP certified Container Freight Stations (CFS) across the globe, all having been opened within the last three and a half years.

Access to this global network of GDP CFS facilities will help your product move quickly to where it needs to be and ensures that integrity is maintained.

Compliances and certifications. It’s important to partner with a provider who is properly equipped to handle temperature-sensitive items and possess the necessary compliances and certifications to operate.

These include cGMP compliant, licensed FDA repackager/relabeler, NABP Drug Distributor Accreditation, and compliance to the Drug Supply Chain and Security Act.

In turn, as a freight forwarder, Nippon Express holds a variety of quality compliances and credentials as well. The Nippon Express global network operates 34 GDP-certified bases in 25 countries, with plans to add to this network. In addition, Nippon Express complies with all legal guidelines related to pharmaceutical product logistics in the markets in which they operate.
