3rd Party Logistics

3rd Party Logistics

Third Party Logistics Providers in the pharmaceutical industry do just that; they specialize in providing logistics services - namely transportation, storage, and security – to drug manufacturers, retailers, and healthcare providers. Oftentimes, these types of companies are employed when companies have products or services that require special attention - for example, medicines that require temperature control. 3PLs are a vital stakeholder in the drug supply chain given that they make up a majority of the logistics infrastructure, not to mention they are the ones who actually take the drugs where the drug companies (and consumers) want them to go.
