Taking stock: Impact on supply chains in a post-Covid world

The COVID 19 virus pandemic has rocked the world to its core. There are likely to be many and far-reaching consequences of this on the Pharmaceutical industry. One aspect that will come under scrutiny is in the area of risk management and continuity of Pharmaceutical supply chains. What have we learned that will shape supply chains of the future? What innovations have been accelerated to address the challenges? Will we see radical changes in the factors pharma companies consider when making outsourcing decisions? Will they recalculate the balance between working capital and inventory management? Will large companies consider a slowing or even reversal in the trend to outsource API/DP manufacture, with greater investment in internal assets?
