A Proven Alliance for All of Your Clinical Trial Material Supply Chain Requirements
PAREXEL® and Catalent®, two industry-leading providers of supply chain solutions, have entered into a global alliance to help streamline the clinical trial material supply process and provide an end-to-end clinical trial material supply solution.
The biopharmaceutical industry is highly competitive and obstacles involving clinical trial supplies cannot get in the way of reaching critical trial milestones. While trials are becoming more complex, sponsors are finding it more challenging to devise supply strategies and organize consistent manufacturing, packaging and delivery of trial-related supplies to locations around the world. One of the most important steps in creating a strong, efficient clinical trial material supply chain is selecting a partner with established global operations to oversee and coordinate all aspects of each critical supply chain stage.
The PAREXEL-Catalent alliance provides sponsors with a unique, integrated clinical trial material supply chain solution to help streamline the clinical trial supply process and reduce timelines, while enhancing patient safety and improving service quality. Our combined know-how is underpinned by integrated processes, an established global network of central and local distribution centers, leading supply chain technologies, and global supply chain management expertise. PAREXEL and Catalent have aligned core competencies, infused with leading technology and best practices, to provide a complete clinical trial material supply chain solution.
