The leap from clinical trials to commercial distribution of pharmaceutical products is significant. Companies once focused on small-volume shipments and understanding the efficacy of a clinical drug begin to focus on scale and profitability.
Cold chain needs also change. Temperature requirements are better understood, shipping timeframes are shorter and shipping volumes increase. Commercial shipments also require significant warehousing space and the ability to condition large volumes of packaging at one time. Pharmaceutical companies need a partner that can adapt to their evolving needs instead of offering a one-size-fits all approach.
