Cold chain logistics expertise inspires control tower solution for Ireland-based pharma company
An Ireland-based global pharmaceutical company specializing in generic, branded and bio-similar products was operating a de-centralized logistics setup using multiple suppliers. The company could not achieve cost savings and work synergies due to the cumbersome manual process and the lack of critical visibility on the flow of products and information. Agility developed a global controlled process within the customer’s operating environment and implemented the Integrated Control Tower Solution to manage all of their suppliers and the flow of global air, ocean and road transport.

Meeting European pharmaceutical regulations and creating 30 percent savings
Specialized products that require temperature control and cold chain transport and must meet EU regulations for GDP drive up shipping costs, impact profit margins along the supply chain, and complicate a complex distribution process. A global pharmaceutical company based in Germany and distributing to eight European countries sought a centrally controlled supply chain to transport across borders and guarantee temperature control and tight delivery times. Agility’s LTL road freight solution not only generated 30 percent savings but also gave the company a dedicated 24/7 customer desk and GPS tracking with full visibility.

Agility’s Dubai pharma competency center offered scalability and pharma expertise. Since choosing Agility, the customer has achieved a 60 percent improvement in order fulfillment, doubled its shipments to 500 pallets/month and increased stock holding from 700 to 2,000 pallets.
