Medical Devices Benchmark

Medical device suppliers have to deal with producing, storing, and transporting an ever-widening range of complex products.

Using proprietary data collected from top executives, this whitepaper covers key trends in medical device supply chain, including:

 - The impact of last minute deliveries and low inventory turnover on costs
 - The state of inventory management and device production outsourcing
