Sourcing Scenario in the Pharmaceutical Sectors

Pharmaceutical companies have to ensure the maintenance of an optimal level of inventory as higher inventory can lead to problems relating to expiry date, storage temperature and conditions, and wastages. Sourcing in a pharmaceutical company is different and involves a host of complications than sourcing in other companies. Multiple factors are to be considered before pharmaceutical products sourcing such as patent status, innovations in medicine, the complexity of the product, national and international standards, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, and environmental impact.
