What is Life Science logistics?

Life Science Logistics are specialist solutions designed for the high-priority life sciences and healthcare industry. From medical technology and devices to service parts and pharmaceutical products, these shipments demand careful handling and steadfast action, because logistics of this kind is often intrinsically linked to the delivery of patient care.

Flexibility and reducing risk are therefore essential requirements. The nature of the sector demands accuracy and promptness, as the global shift caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted how crucial a seamless and agile outbound and inbound logistics cycle is.

Life Science logistics market priorities

Consistent, fast, and highly flexible services are fundamental in Life Science logistics. Full visibility across the supply chain is vital to gain total control, and when this is combined with efficient service times and proactive customer support, organisations can better anticipate and prevent any potential disruption.

Devices and hospital equipment can be sensitive and extraordinarily valuable, that’s why reverse logistics plays an equally important role. Damage and loss can be costly, therefore every stage of the supply chain must also be quick and seamless in reverse, allowing parts to be checked and restocked to inventory promptly, improving stock management, while freeing up engineers’ time.
