Sonoco Thermosafe, in collaboration with Arena International and Berlinger & Co. AG, has launched a global survey with the aim to gain a deeper understanding of the ever-evolving clinical trial supply market.

As the cost of developing drugs continues to rise, a significant outlay of that spend comes from the clinical supply chain. Therefore, the intent of this forward-looking survey is to assess current and future trends within the clinical supply chain that will hopefully go some way to help pharma and biotech companies (both large and small) find areas to improve processes.

The survey, which covers four key areas (logistics, supply challenges, technology and innovation), will be open until October 31st, 2016 at

Clinical Trials Arena encourages everyone involved in the clinical supply chain to take the survey. Results will be analyzed and publicly presented during the first quarter of 2017.
