At UPS, our core business involves helping companies manage change, so we’ve been in the trenches through a wide range of mergers, acquisitions and divestitures – in healthcare and non-healthcare sectors alike. And as a global company ourselves, UPS acquired six companies in Europe in the last 3 years. So we appreciate the perils and pitfalls of the journey. For companies in the healthcare sector, that process can be particularly fraught – given the nature of the products, the complexity of the supply chains and the stringent regulations involved. Fortunately, there are practical, tactical strategies that can decisively impact the final outcome. In our experience, a major restructuring is an opportunity to create transformational change that significantly enhances long-term competitiveness and performance. In this white paper, we outline some very pragmatic, actionable strategies we’ve gleaned in our experience working in this sector.Taking The Supply Chain Pain Out Of Healthcare Mergers And Acquisitions

As the biopharmaceutical industry's focus moves from a blockbuster sales model to more targeted therapeutics, the need to avoid costly investments in sizable stainless steel equipment is increasing. The use of single-use bioprocessing equipment is making product manufacture increasingly efficient and frequently less costly, particularly for early stages such as R&D and clinical trials. This is particularly important for smaller and lesser-funded companies, for whom using single-use equipment for in-house candidate product manufacture is one of the only viable options (aside from outsourcing).Investment Trends In Single Use Systems
A dominating focus of today’s single use systems in biomanufacturing is the road towards standardisation between equipment suppliers. The absence of standardisation between single use system suppliers is seen as a key discourager to end users despite the many advantages the format provides to the pharma and biotech production process. Advantages to single use system standardisation include the avoidance of costs for system modification and faster implementation.
