How Pharma Leaders Manage Disruption

Pharmaceutical supply chain leaders recognize the value that end-to-end visibility, seamless collaboration and accurate data bring to their pharma transportation operations.

“There’s a high need to be able to not only see what’s happening within the network, but to be able to react to that in a really quick way, based on the dynamics around capacity availability, and other disruptions that are happening. I think everyone right now is working toward this frictionless experience for the customer.”
Joshua Dolan, Vice President, Global Logistics at Cardinal Health

FourKites’ customer 3M states“There’s data democratization, where you can see stuff that is happening much faster on a daily basis. There’s much more transparency on issues we are facing, and the team is going in eyes wide open and trying to find solutions as quickly as we can.”
