Life Sciences companies need to employ a dynamic, demand-driven logistics strategy that maximizes their responsiveness to changing business conditions.

Defining and articulating a strategy by taking inputs from key stakeholder groups such as customer service, finance, manufacturing and marketing.
Understanding the “voice of the customer” and using the information to create specific customer segments and distinct strategies for each customer segment.
Implementing a formal risk management program that emphasizes scenario planning and data sharing.
Developing a clearly defined and centrally managed logistics operating model, with the right capabilities instilled at the global, regional and local levels.
Exploring the potential of outsourcing to reduce logistics costs and increase operational flexibility.
