Designing the SC Model for Efficiency & Robustness: Managing Pharmaceutical Supply through the Pandemic – Paul Ives

Paul Ives, Global Supply Strategy Director, AstraZeneca


Very interesting presentation about the key elements that enabled AstraZeneca to supply pharmaceuticals into Australia and New Zealand through demand surges during the COVID-19 pandemic, through:

  • Collaboration with internal and external supplier and 1st tier distributors
  • Visualisation of inventory and sales on a daily basis through our extended supply chain
  • Management of inventory and allocation of orders
  • Leveraging our 3PL partners to expedite product into country
  • Utilisation of different freight modes
