Medicines suppliers

The pharmaceutical industry is constantly evolving and facing more and more challenges:

  • Combating counterfeit medicines
    The FMD does this for both prescription and non-prescription medication. 
  • Need for more efficiency in logistics 
    From the electronic processing of the order and delivery to the invoice. 

GS1 standards contribute to increased efficiency and thus protect the five rights of the patient:

"The right dose of the right medication to the right person at the right time and in the right way."
