Distribution Services

Investigational products must be supplied to sites in as efficient and effective means possible. We must also advise our clients on the best shipping strategies to be employed, with a means of temperature control and robust management of all aspects of the supply chain.

We realise that effective management of the clinical supply chain is a major challenge. International trials require global facilities located in strategic regions. We also provide integrated supply chain management tools – from shippers and monitors to courier management processes and online decision making tools. We need to provide strategies hand in hand with IVR management, that can manage peaks in demand but also provide the most efficient direct to site or depot approach.

Almac has invested heavily across all main sites to further increase capacity and resource for IMP storage and shipments. This strategy continues with additions across all three sites for increased ambient, refrigerated and controlled drug storage. Also, with our flagship NAHQ coming on board, we offer huge capacity with future proof expansion.

With experience of shipping to over 100 countries globally, our dedicated Distribution Team provide expert advice on the drug shipment process at the start of each protocol. This can contribute to faster study start-up dates by deploying our knowledge of this area.
