We have worked closely with our manufacturer clients over many decades and built a reputation for the provision of best in class services in warehousing and distribution of pharmaceutical and healthcare products. We continue to attract new principals thanks to our ability to offer a total value chain service to our manufacturer clients. We provide four key services:
- Reduced wholesale
- Direct to Pharmacy
- Third-party logistics model
Wholesale distribution of pharmaceutical and healthcare products to retail pharmacy remains an important business area for Uniphar. Our retail services business has grown in recent years, as a result of investments in a user-friendly online ordering platform and in new services to help our retail customers to increase their profit margins.
