Many factors are contributing to the storage and distribution of clinical trial materials becoming more complex—trials in new geographies may entail different regulatory requirements, changes to existing import/export regulations, biologics that need special handling and temperature controls, and cell & gene therapies that will likely bring another layer of new intricacies to the distribution of clinical trial materials.

All of this points towards a need for highly knowledgeable service providers. Drug innovators who need to engage a third-party clinical logistics provider have a variety of options: integrated clinical trial service providers, specialty couriers focused on the life science industry, transportation / package delivery companies’ healthcare offering, freight forwarders / integrators with experience across multiple industries, and airline cargo services. Knowing which type of provider will best match the needs of your organization—or a particular trial—can be tricky.

Data from Industry Standard Research’s Clinical Logistics Market Dynamics and Service Provider Benchmarking report will educate readers about current usage patterns and preferences for outsourced clinical logistics providers as well as what the future may bring.”
