"A key aspect is the vetting of 3PLs upfront, knowing what your business requirements are and being able to communicate that effectively, while working on the associated set of KPIs and penalties are necessary," said Davon.

"Most of the time pharma companies are primarily assessing 3PLs on cost savings," Karl added. "It’s important to take a step back and properly define your scope and expectations."
