  • 37% consider transportation and infrastructure throughout the extent of the operations to be the greatest risk in establishing a temperature controlled pharmaceutical supply chain in this area.
  • 18% point to collaborating with affiliates and 'sister companies' for expertise and best solutions for domestic distribution within the various countries.
  • 18% identified the diverse regulatory compliance requirements encountered when working within and between individual countries.

Latin-American Macro Challenges:

  • Regulatory Compliance - Regulations are heavily unstable at this time in Venezuela and Argentina. According to industry research reports, Mexico is becoming the leader for setting industry standards.
  • Security - Securing the cold chain plays an essential role in developing markets, presenting a greater challenge to manufacturers and distributors. In order to ensure security, companies are investing in the latest track and trace technology to accurately monitor products at all times.
  • Technology Enabling Tracking of Temperature - Technology can help notify master control of any deviations of temperature deviations and solve issues in a timely manner.    
  • Required Documentation and Deciding on the Value of the Material - Documentation is becoming an increasingly pertinent part of the regulatory compliance with language and cultural differences becoming a particular challenge in emerging markets. For parcel shipments, documentation is especially a challenge working with customs in Brazil, Argentina, and Venezuela.   
  • Maintenance of Cold Chain Conditions - Both in the Air and on the Ground - The largest issue that the industry is seeing at this time is the lack of visibility within airports, shipments arrival and departure from them going through customs and the time it may take to do so. As far as ground transport goes, this ties in with the threat of security breaches.
