We know that as a life sciences & healthcare business, you face a wide range of new - and emerging - challenges, all of which have a direct impact on your supply chain.

Expiring global patents and regulatory changes are causing uncertain demand, which creates challenges in quickly scaling up or down as customer demand fluctuates. This is why we've built PharmaShare, a shared-use supply solution where several customers share the same physical warehouse and transportation infrastructure.

DHL Supply Chain's shared-use facilities are scalable, repeatable and provide the cost efficiencies necessary to respond to a rapidly changing marketplace.
