What’s up in the life sciences wholesale market…

While the overall volume of turnover in the Life Science Wholesale industry has been on the increase over the last five years, margins dropped. Main drivers of revenue growth are highly expensive drugs, which entail high storage costs and risk. Additionally wholesalers are frequently bypassed by direct industry distribution. Increasing dynamism in the production of generics is an opportunity for wholesalers, yet a two-edged sword: high volumes but at low margins. At the same time a stocking up on multiple generics triggers additional storage costs and complexity. Efficiency and rising quality standards for transport and storage is the name of the game.
