For independent pharmacies, selecting a pharmaceutical wholesale distributor is a decision that can have significant impact on the success of the business.

Turning a profit in the pharmacy business today is not guaranteed. DIR fees and pharmacy benefit managers are driving margins down even as drug costs continue to rise. Competition has never been stronger, with big box retailers claiming a significant market share. For independents, finding a pharmaceutical wholesale distributor that offers competitive generic prices, brand prices and pharmacy product pricing is the key to ensuring profitability.
Profiting from the sale of wholesale prescription drugs requires access to competitively priced products from a wholesale pharmaceuticals distributor. But rather than working with a supplier who focuses on large chain pharmacies, more small pharmacies today are purchasing products from a supplier like H. D. Smith who focuses on business solutions and distribution for community pharmacies.
While pricing is critical, independents also need a pharmaceutical wholesale distributor with excellent customer support. And additional value-added services that provide more resources for community pharmacies are critical to the pharmaceutical wholesale distributor relationship.

H. D. Smith: pharmaceutical wholesale distributor for independents.

When choosing a pharmaceutical wholesale distributor, a growing number of independent pharmacies today are abandoning their pharmaceutical wholesaler contract with a distributor not focused on community pharmacies in favor of a relationship with H. D. Smith.
