Our client, one of the world’s leading biotechnology companies, conducts multiple clinical trials on a variety of products targeting auto-immune disorders. Historically, the Sponsor relied upon Fisher Clinical Services to support packaging and labeling requirements for its clinical trials while directly managing the distribution and logistics aspect of all trials. Over time, and as the Sponsor’s pipeline and global presence continued to grow, management of the supply chain presented challenges. The Sponsor was forecasting a significant increase in its clinical trial projects globally, with plans to extend out into less well developed and emerging markets. Additionally, cost pressures demanded a tighter supply chain with better control over inventory levels, and there was a need for increased temperature monitoring of clinical supplies in transit.
