Pharmaceutical Manufacturing’s Reshoring Problem

June 4, 2024
Why is the pharma industry hesitant to build a domestic supply chain?

The intricacies and vulnerabilities of pharmaceutical supply chains have made domestic manufacturing an area of concern. Langhauser explores the largest barriers to pharma industry reshoring and what can reasonably be done to remedy them.
