A Day in the Life of a Distributor
Getting critical healthcare products to the patients who need them is all in a day's work for AmerisourceBergen.
We distribute 1.9+ million product lines
from 40+ distribution centers
and every day, we service 50k+ healthcare facilities
And that's not even all we do. The role of the distributor spans the healthcare supply chain from before a product even launches to far after it's prescribed.
Every day, we are...
...a solutions provider and marketplace.
“By investing in solutions and services for our customers, we’re helping improve patient access and outcomes.”
On a daily basis, we are committed to protecting the healthcare supply chain against fraudulent activities and misuse that harms patients.
“Distributors must create a supply chain that is safe and secure. We must ensure our customers are licensed and registered with appropriate entities like the DEA and state boards of pharmacy."
...an intelligence provider.
Our day-to-day work often begins before a product even launches, bringing our deep understanding of customer needs to help manufacturers determine the best channel strategy for their products.
"When thinking about their distribution decisions, manufacturers should really think about how customers prefer to access products."
...an industry builder.
"Our customers choose to work with prime vendors or our specialty distributors because they appreciate the total value that wholesalers bring to the supply chain and to patients."
...a bridge across the supply chain
