HEALTHCARE LOGISTICS: secured and optimized supply chain

A sensitive sector

Today's increasingly stringent healthcare regulations, and the growing outsourcing and globalisation of production, require even greater flexibility from supply chains in the healthcare sector in order to optimise costs. Whether it’s a matter of quickly switching from one supply source to another, speeding up the availability of products in the event of shortages or even stopping a distribution process when a product is withdrawn from the market, healthcare supply chains must be able to constantly adapt.
