4:00 PM Increasing Speed and Accuracy in Packaging: Rise in Use of Contract Packaging Companies

It’s costly to replace legacy equipment in the face of stricter regulations. That’s why more pharmaceutical manufacturers are turning to specialized contract packagers to ensure a higher level of speed and accuracy in their packaging operations. Focus on your core competency – drug development and leave packaging to the experts.

Rely on specialized packaging companies for full service solutions (i.e. blister packs, RFID tags, tamperevident solutions, etc.)

Reduce total supply chain costs by 25 to 50 percent
