Many pharmaceutical companies, including a division of a global healthcare company, manage their own warehousing because of strict QHSE compliance issues.
The challenge for Agility’s pharmaceutical customer was to find a trustworthy outsourcing partner to offer state-of-the-art warehousing services for its temperature-sensitive drug products. Agility was the first logistics firm to convince a pharmaceutical company in Pakistan to completely outsource its warehousing. We were actually competing against the company’s own warehousing operations, and Agility had to make a business case that was attractive enough to convince them to outsource. Our QHSE-compliant, temperature-controlled warehousing came at a cost on par with their current operations. As a result, Agility won the business.
