Pharmaceutical industry uses logistics for the overall management of the resources right from where it is acquired, stored, and moved. The implementation of logistics in this industry allows for the continuous supply of drugs, equipment, and devices from suppliers and distributors in different locations. Moreover, pharmaceutical logistics primarily caters to large pharmacy retail chains, whole sellers of medical products, as well as directly to clinics and hospitals. Furthermore, pharmaceutical logistics chain is not similar to other regular logistics chains in terms of type of complexity, products, and cost. Since, accessibility & availability of products are very important for both governments and companies. Also, unlike pharmaceuticals there are no other products with higher risk of sterilization, instability, or contamination. Th packaging & transportation from factory to consumer plays a very important role in pharmaceutical logistics and the process needs to maintain and monitored well. In addition, the products while transportation are tracked with GPS, along with remote temperature monitoring in accordance with good distribution practice (GDP) guidelines, ensuring safe transportation and delivery of the products.
