For the independent pharmacist, success often depends on choosing the best pharmaceutical wholesale distributor. In an industry where profit margins are getting thinner and competition is getting stronger, a superior pharmaceutical wholesale relationship can mean the difference between turning a profit or ending the year in the red.

Drug prices continue to rise, just as pharmacy benefit managers continue to require lower prices. To survive in this environment, independent pharmacies must be able to count on competitive pharmaceutical wholesale pricing. Many independents are realizing that the relationship with their existing wholesale pharmacy supplier is no longer working.
The alternative: an independent wholesale pharmaceuticals distributor like H. D. Smith. As one of the nation’s largest independent pharmaceutical wholesale distributor, we provide pharmaceutical wholesale prices that are competitive, while delivering extraordinary customer service and value-added programs.
