Protecting your goods while in-transit or held in inventory

The value and sensitivity of the products manufactured by life science companies makes the risk management of cargo a critical and strategic function.

Your supply chain is vulnerable to many risks:

  • Complex geopolitical issues could threaten the distribution of products into unstable parts of the globe.
  • Cargo theft and security threats are constant reminders that companies need to be vigilant.
  • Temperature sensitivity, spoilage or deterioration of cargo including suspected damage/fear of loss.

Complementing our industry expertise, we have robust analytic capabilities and supply chain consultancy services, meaning that our life sciences practice group is well equipped to assist you in managing this complex risk environment.
