Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals

The chemical industry comprises the companies that produce industrial chemicals. Central to the modern world economy, it converts raw materials (oil, natural gas, air, water, metals, and minerals) into products, that represent a USD 3 trillion market. The pharmaceutical industry develops, produces, and markets drugs or pharmaceuticals licensed for use as medications. It specializes in releasing chemical and biological entities to the market, which represents over USD 1 trillion, including 10% dedicated to the R&D.

Many chemical products are dangerous & toxic in their delivery state and require specialized transportation and storage (DG cargo). Due to the high value of pharmaceuticals, the simplicity to create fakes, and the relatively low level of legal sanctions in case of discovery, they are a highly priced target in certain circles. This is where SCMO helps both chemical and pharmaceutical companies. We assist the chemical world in auditing, designing, and implementing robust supply chains with best-in-class safety levels (HSEQ and more). We assist the pharmaceutical sector in auditing, designing, and implementing safe supply chains with the highest standards of security available (TAPA, C-TPAT, AEO, and more).

The following case study demonstrates how SCMO approach has been successfully applied to client issues.

Our client was a home appliance manufacturer based in China. They wanted to reach retailers, distributors and wholesalers in Europe and the USA, which did not have buying offices in Asia and were previously reliant on importers and traders. Our advisors trained company staff to offer tariffs based on DDP terms, in order to make it easy for a customer base, which didn’t know how to import. We also helped them to choose the right freight forwarders to serve these markets appropriately. They have now successfully diversified their customer base, increasing their turnover two fold, and adding to their stability.
