Challenge: A large manufacturer of pharmaceutical products engaged Beaufort to develop a new distribution strategy to accommodate growing complexity in its supply chain resulting from the implementation of a new sterilization process of its primary packaging materials.

Beaufort Solution: Beaufort assisted the client in formulating a new strategy that would support the validation of a new e-beam sterilization process while meeting upcoming requirements of future products with improved service levels and reduced cost requirements. We then facilitated the selection of a new sterilization services supplier who could meet the cost and service level requirements and assisted the client with the certification the new approved supplier. As a result of the project, the client is able to accommodate significant new growth within its existing footprint and reduced the complexity of its supply chain using a highly efficient sterilization process at a significant cost savings and also improved their cycle time and customer service levels.
