Logistyx Recognized as One of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2021 Top Supply Chain Projects
The Top Supply Chain Projects (formerly known as SDCE 100) spotlights successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium, and large enterprises across a range of supply chain functions. These projects show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
Logistyx was honored for its collaborative work with its client, a top international pharmaceutical company that took the lead on COVID-19 vaccine development and distribution. As the pandemic swept the globe in 2020, our client worked tirelessly to fulfill vaccine shipment orders worldwide from several sites within the United States and parts of Europe. Since the early days of the pandemic, the pharma company invested in the infrastructure necessary to distribute its vaccine safely and securely.
To meet the complex shipping requirements of the life-saving vaccine shipments, the pharma company turned to its partner, Logistyx Technologies. Logistyx expanded the pharma company’s shipping capabilities to incorporate shipping directly from manufacturing locations in the U.S. and Europe. Data produced by Logistyx was automatically fed to the carriers to aid in carrier-provided customs clearance and accelerate the international shipping process.
By mid-December 2020, the pharma company shipped 2.9 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine to locations specified by the U.S. government around the country, with that number climbing both nationally and internationally well into the first half of 2021.
The pharma company was able to fulfill vaccine orders worldwide at the fastest parcel delivery speeds possible from locations in the U.S. and Europe, all while:
- Incorporating a high degree of data visibility
- Providing a streamlined return process for their custom shippers
- Managing the complex requirements of customs agencies in every country
- Committing to timely data feeds to each of the carriers for tracking and customs clearance
- Successfully leveraging both existing and new solutions to meet the overall goal of worldwide vaccine distribution on the strict timeline necessary to coincide with Emergency Use Authorizations
“The supply chain industry has been challenged with a host of supply chain disruptions over the last year. Yet, the winners on this list continued to re-tool and innovate,” says Marina Mayer, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “Whether it be moving a customer to a cloud-based solution or implementing a more sustainable shipping option, these top supply chain projects reflect the supply chain industry’s strength and resilience to overcome disruptions and work better, smarter, and more efficiently in the years ahead.”
