Navigating Risk Along Every Link Of The Healthcare Supply Chain
Prevention is better than cure. Our APAC President Karen Reddington shares how innovation and compliance can go hand-in-hand to ensure product integrity of sensitive healthcare shipments with end-to-end visibility.
As a result, healthcare suppliers and businesses need to shield themselves against potential risks in the supply chain as well as avail themselves of benefits arising from recent industry growth.
Today’s biopharma shipments present a journey of unique risk from origin to destination. Not only must there be a step-up in service quantity to meet demand, recent technological advancements necessitate a step-up in the quality of solutions, to ensure that increasingly sensitive shipments are safeguarded from the beginning of the supply chain right to the end.

With great care comes great responsibility
End-to-end visibility helps maintain control
At FedEx, product integrity is our number one priority. To achieve this, we focus on end-to-end visibility of three key components: temperature, time and location.
Continuing to leverage digital transformation is key. This enables us to develop innovations that provide customers with a transparent, up-to-the-minute line of sight into all stages of the supply chain.
Crucially, a robust supply chain with knowledge of all timing and temperature issues makes it possible to identify pain points between the supplier, vendor, factory and other stakeholders as soon as they emerge.
Innovation and compliance go hand-in-hand
Capitalize on a full spectrum of solutions

They can also protect the integrity of their clinical samples, subjects and research with a portfolio of temperature-controlled solutions we call .
Finally, our latest cold-chain innovation, , provides real-time monitoring by combining an advanced multi-sensor device with a powerful web-based application for intuitive, in-depth tracking. Tech-assisted knowledge and foresight, here, is crucial in oiling the wheels of successful end-to-end delivery. Closing the information gap at each stage of the distribution journey means customers are empowered to take control of their shipment, helping to mitigate many of the risks along a complex supply chain that is far from linear or simple.
