Selecting the right pharmaceutical distribution company can mean the difference between profit and loss for independent pharmacies.

The pharmacy business is increasingly difficult for independents these days. From rising drug costs and DIR fees to pharmacy benefit managers and big box competitors, turning a profit has never been more difficult. Partnering with the right pharmaceutical distribution service can help by ensuring fast and reliable access to inventory at highly competitive prices.
When contracting for pharmaceutical distribution, many independents have typically turned to a pharmaceuticals distributor who is not focused on community pharmacy. In doing so, their supplier does not have their best interest in mind.
This reality has encouraged many independent pharmacies to abandon their existing pharmaceutical distribution relationship in favor of an independent pharmaceutical distributor like H. D. Smith. Community pharmacies not only have access to competitively priced pharmaceuticals and business solutions, they know they are working with a supplier who has their best interest in mind.

H. D. Smith: the #1 pharmaceutical distribution service for independents.

H. D. Smith is one of the largest independent wholesale pharmaceutical distributor in the country. Dedicated to serving community pharmacies since 1954, we have built a reputation for excellence in pharmaceutical distribution by providing competitive pricing, flexible terms and deliveries, reliable order fulfillment and superior customer service.
At H. D. Smith, we understand that generic pharmaceutical distribution is critical to profitability for many independents. That’s why we’ve created one of the most robust generic portfolios on the market. As a generic drug distributor, we are among the nation’s top 10 purchasers of generic pharmaceuticals. Our PharmaGen portfolio provides the best possible value, coverage, quality and availability of generic medicines, along with profit margins that range from 40 to 60%.
Additionally, we provide competitive pricing and excellent availability on pharmaceutical distribution of brand and specialty medicines – we are a vaccine and NARCAN distributor, for instance, to thousands of independent pharmacies nationwide. And we offer extensive selection in consumer products, pharmacy supplies and home healthcare products, which are quickly becoming a vital profit center for community pharmacists.

A pharmaceutical distribution company committed to your success.

Our dedication to serving the needs of community pharmacies doesn’t stop with excellent pharmaceutical distribution. Realizing that the success of independent pharmacies relies on superior marketing and management, we offer a collection of retail solutions, management programs and innovative technologies that can help pharmacies win new customers, serve existing clients, manage inventory, drive front-end traffic and streamline back-end operations.
