A robust logistics and supply chain network is required to conduct all types of clinical trials ranging from small regional trials to complex global clinical trials, considering the strict regulatory standards.

The strategic management of logistics and supply chain plays a pivotal role in fulfilling the specific requirements of a clinical trial protocol with precision, compliance, and real-time visibility throughout the process. High investments in research and development (R&D) and adequate supply and logistics infrastructure can potentially improve the possibility of successful medicine.

Managing clinical supplies and logistics

Clinical research companies need to ensure that supplies required for conducting a clinical trial are ordered, produced, transported and delivered timely.

Clinical trial supply chain management encompasses designing, planning, executing, and monitoring the supply chain activities in a cost-effective manner. It requires regular monitoring of delivery lead times and stock levels.

Choosing an efficient clinical trial logistics services provider helps to ensure a continuous and timely supply of quality-assured clinical trial medicines. Quality-assuring suppliers position enough clinical trial drugs in regional depots proactively to deal with contingencies related to recruitment uncertainties, manufacturer lead times, and regulatory approval timelines.
