As we read the news around the world it almost seems that there is some sort of natural disaster occurring. Hurricanes, monsoons, earthquakes are occurring around the world and when they do they have an impact on all businesses including pharmaceutical supply chain business.
When a natural disaster occurs, oftentimes companies are not adequately prepared to effectively and expeditiously manage the situation to minimize business, customer, and/or patient impact. The Rx-360 Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Consortium has created this Natural Disaster Contingency Planning guideline in response to natural disasters our members are experiencing. This guideline can serve as a baseline to assist your organization to proactively consider how your organization would internally react in the unfortunate circumstance that a natural disaster impacts one of your business locations.
