Pfizer is pleased to announce the success of its new supply and distribution arrangements.
Pfizer is pleased to announce the success of its new supply and distribution arrangements. On the 5 March 2007, we changed the supply and distribution of our prescription medicines by selling them directly to pharmacists, dispensing doctors and hospitals - using UniChem as a logistics service provider. Two weeks into the new model, over 97% of pharmacy customers have opened a trading account with Pfizer and over 80% of these customers have placed orders and received deliveries of our prescription medicines. Pharmacy customers are receiving a very high level of service trading directly with us, with over 99% of deliveries being made on time and in full. Over the coming weeks, we will continue to communicate key metrics in order to demonstrate the high levels of performance so that customers can have full confidence in our new distribution arrangements. David Watson, Head of Trade at Pfizer said: "We are extremely pleased with performance to date and believe the facts speak for themselves. We remain committed to our direct-to-pharmacy arrangement and in developing a closer commercial relationship with pharmacists who are very important customers for us." If customers have any enquiries relating to the new arrangement, they can contact our dedicated Pfizer team on 0845 608 8866.
