AstraZeneca Uses CombineNet as Prescription to Drive Greater Supply Chain Savings and Efficiencies
Case Study Abstract:
AstraZeneca ships its pharmaceutical products globally by a combination of air and ocean freight. To improve supply chain operations and reduce costs, AstraZeneca has undertaken a multi-year strategy to transition more product from air freight to ocean carriage. The AstraZeneca supply chain team had been successful in the past at transferring some of its air freight transportation to ocean freight, but had yet to undertake a large scale transformation because of the large amount of data collection and analysis required to fully understand the impact. The company turned to CombineNet ASAP to support their sourcing strategy, generating more than 12% in cost savings and significantly reducing the sourcing cycle.
