Supply chains in the life sciences

In comparison with other industries the supply chain in the life science industry is limited. Decisions regarding suppliers and subcontractors are typically restricted to qualified suppliers. While the number of participants in the supply chain is limited, the relationships are very tight and lasting. Once supply chains are defined they usually remain static as the result of problems connected with laws and regulations, which prevent changes.
