Several cold chain service providers have recently started to offer end-to-end integrated services, such as road, air, rail, and ocean transportation and warehousing to end-users in the global healthcare logistics market. Logistic vendors are providing cold chain management services to end-user customers and participating in their decision-making processes. Many logistic service providers offer end-to-end cold chain management services, such as inventory management, order scheduling, order forecasting, warehousing, and delivery management.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increased investment in technology. The market is witnessing huge investments in technologies, such as IT solutions, which enable the streamlining of logistics. With further sophistication and advances in technology, the market is expected to exhibit tremendous potential for growth.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is complex supply chain and lack of data standardization. The global healthcare logistics market has been incurring losses because of the rising costs of the complex supply chain management. Each product requires special care, specific supply chains, and transportation facilities for shipment. Each region, state, and country has different rules, regulations, and policies regarding the transport of goods from one destination to another. To overcome this challenge and enhance the efficiency of supply chains, many healthcare vendors are opting to outsource their logistics functions to be able to focus better on their core activities.
