CELL THERAPY COMMERCIAL SUPPLY CHAIN
How a U.S. biotech company established a global supply chain for a cell therapy with complicated and unique characteristics.
A U.S.-based cell therapy manufacturer hired Archbow to coordinate global supply chain logistics. The cell therapy product requires:
Multiple shipments frozen in LN2
Multiple cell lines warehoused at -150C
Logistical considerations with customs clearance
Quick order processing, shipping, and delivery
Archbow proactively researched critical path questions to develop an RFP and vet potential partners. Vendor site visits were conducted.
A best-practice project management plan was used to keep multiple vendors and customer stakeholders on two continents engaged through the vetting and selection process.
After compiling all data, results, and input, a supply chain partner network was established and contracted.
Supply chain vendor implementation is currently underway, along with:
A comprehensive Fair Market Value assessment
COE customer research
Ad Boards with global stakeholders
