Survey Reveals Current and Future Trends in Clinical Trial Supplies Market

Sonoco ThermoSafe survey of 230 healthcare industry professionals representing organizations from more than 20 countries and clinical supply operations across five continents sheds light on outsourcing, partnerships and more.

As regional regulations pose increasingly unique supply chain challenges, more healthcare organizations are turning to import brokers to assist with shipping products globally. That’s one insight from a recent industry survey performed by Sonoco ThermoSafe, a global provider of temperature-controlled packaging, in partnership with Arena International Events Group and Berlinger & Co. AG.

The survey, “Assessing the Current and Future State of Clinical Trial Supplies” was released this week, co-developed by an advisory panel of industry experts from clinical operations, clinical trial supply logistics and packaging, as well as bio-pharma manufacturing and supply chain organizations.

Russell Grissett, Division Vice President and General Manager of Sonoco ThermoSafe says, “The insights gained through this survey will hopefully help companies baseline their current strategies in clinical trial logistics, supply chain and technology and guide future investments.”

Detailed findings were presented at the 6th Annual Clinical Trial Supply New England conference in Boston, MA, on March 8, 2017 and will be noted at subsequent Arena International Group events across North America, Europe and Asia throughout 2017.
