Like in many highly competitive business sectors, optimizing logistics costs is a constant challenge in pharmaceutical distribution.
A number of constraints are placed on this regulated industry (batch number, refrigeration for vaccines, etc.) and it requires absolutely seamless order fulfillment. In addition, there is a variety of workflows (package and full freight) and an expectation of responsiveness that may be coupled with seasonal fluctuations.
Lastly, the parcels can be fragile, vary in temperature and frequently have high commercial value.
