Choosing a pharmaceutical distributor is one of the most important decisions that independent pharmacy must make. At a time when competition from big box chains is fiercer than ever and profit margins continue to shrink, independents need a pharmaceutical distributor that can deliver deeply discounted pricing, excellent customer service and value-added benefits to help them profit and thrive.

Working with just any pharmaceuticals distributor no longer cuts it for most independent pharmacies. They need a supplier who can help streamline their pharmaceutical distribution for competitive pricing, better product access, and consultative business solutions. By using just any pharmaceutical distributor, independents might be missing out on opportunities to improve their profitability and stay competitive.
