Case Study: 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

  • Order-to-cash

  • 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
