The global pandemic is impacting supply chains worldwide, but pharmaceutical supply chains are especially vulnerable. Manufacturers are under pressure to help maintain the supply of critical medicines during COVID-19 as well as contribute to the on-going efforts to support the ever-changing supply chain.
As pharmaceutical manufacturers reprioritize production due to changing and increased product demand, many don’t have alternate suppliers for critical components. This has been a game-changer as they not only have to identify new suppliers, but they must also qualify these components to ensure they understand impact on process, and that quality meets the required standards.
Manufacturing partners across geographic regions are navigating this “new normal” under stressful conditions exacerbated by increased demand for APIs, new supply chain challenges, and an ever-increasing global focus on maintaining quality. To truly succeed as an industry, we must knowledge share and problem-solve together to advance and proactively prepare for the continued success of our mission as an industry.
