Global Pharmaceutical Logistics Market 2017-2021

About Pharmaceutical Logistics

Pharmaceutical logistics is involved in the planning and execution of the complete pharmaceutical supply chain functions. These supply chain functions include transportation, warehousing, inventory management, and other related logistics functions. As some of the pharmaceutical products are temperature sensitive, cold storage is required throughout the supply chain to maintain the quality of the products. Pharmaceutical manufacturers, the only customer segment of this market, outsource their logistics functions in order to reduce the cost and concentrate on their core businesses. Outsourcing of pharmaceutical logistics functions is trending since 2000.
