Pharmaceutical Commerce explores the near decade long story of Cardinal Health’s journey to a simpler, more efficient pharma supply chain.

“This started out as almost a test project because I had recently been trained in Six-Sigma quality practices, and was looking for an internal project with which I could earn my Black Belt. But the success of each project generated momentum for the next, bigger project, and with the strong backing of my management, we’ve been able to produce significant savings and quality improvements in our organization.” – Chris Anderson

Blue is the New Green: Sustainability That Makes Sense


Your cold chain is about more than just protecting and delivering temperature-sensitive products. It is caring for the lives affected by those products and protecting the environment we all share.  Although many organizations still consider it challenging to find a packaging solution that is sustainable, affordable and operationally efficient for cold chain distribution, Cardinal Health knows differently.
