Counterfeit drugs are a real risk to customers’ health. As falsified medicines become more sophisticated, the risk of them reaching patients increases. For that reason, government agencies around the world have implemented regulations with which pharmaceutical industry players have to comply.
Serialization and aggregation contribute to building end-to end traceability in order to secure the global supply chain.
For several pharmaceutical companies, Sterling provided capital program management for the overall project and created a team including mechanical, controls, vision, validation and packaging engineers. Our team supported projects worldwide to meet US, Asia and EU serialization requirements. Lines were integrated with serialization hardware and software in Germany, Italy, Puerto Rico, and several locations in the United States.
Sterling was able to provide the technical program management and the expertise to complete the projects before the project deadline, making it of the few global projects to meet regulatory requirements on time. The various projects covered 90 packaging lines with a budget of $120 million.
Sterling provided leadership to develop multi-year budgets and schedules to meet the governmental requirements. With Sterling Engineering’s strategic alliances, a customized turnkey serialization solution was provided.
Dedicated to providing selection, integration and validation of serialization and aggregation systems for the last 10 years, Sterling has become a key recognized partner in Track & Trace technology projects.
The first building block of a secure and transparent digital supply chain is serialization – and the first challenge is to choose the right serialization partner to meet your needs.
