Life Sciences Logistics Playbook

Temperature-sensitive supply chain logistics, 2-8°C and beyond, offer great opportunity for increasing profitability and ensuring patient safety. Unfortunately, they're too often an afterthought for healthcare manufacturers. But even as budgets are slashed, regulations continue to tighten; companies can't afford to ignore how they transport temperature-controlled products, from the packout line through the last mile. Written for veterans and new personnel alike, this e-book is full of easy-reading tips and best practices. It discusses mistakes industry experts frequently see, and the process steps you can take to avoid them.
