The life sciences sector is heavily networked and more reliant on third parties than other industries.
Knowing where your materials are and how this affects your capability to manufacture is essential.
With disruption increasing, our webinar on 23 March 2022 looked at the rising frequency and severity of external threats to the life sciences supply chain, how the insurance market is responding, and what you can do to mitigate your risks.
It’s not uncommon for the simplest of drugs to have a complex supply chain, with 60-70 participants.
The consequences of disruption can be severe, ultimately leading to delays in life-saving drugs reaching patients.”Joaquin Uy | Deputy Head, Corporate Risk & Broking, Philippines
No two supply chains are the same. The consequences of disruption can be severe, ultimately leading to delays in life-saving drugs reaching patients.
Risks can occur throughout the chain – from the upstream supply of raw materials, through manufacturing and packaging to downstream distribution and wholesale.
In a recent 48-hour period, all these threats to the life sciences global network took place:
Disruptions like these are common.
Other destabilizing factors include natural disasters, the ongoing pandemic, cargo ships stuck in trade lanes, inflationary pressures, worker shortages, political unrest, cyber attacks, port shutdowns and materials shortages.
These are all examples of the unprecedented uncertainty and systemic risk faced by the life sciences industry
