Supply Chain Wizard (supplychainwizard.com) a leading full-service global consulting firm specializing in serialization and traceability, as well as supply chain strategy and operational transformation programs – has been selected to oversee execution of Nordic Group’s large-scale European serialization project. Supply Chain Wizard will oversee multiple serialization solution providers to implement serialization activities and disciplines across multiple lines and locations, including the approximately 30 CMOs and 70 customers utilized by Nordic Group.
Nordic Group is a privately owned pan-European pharmaceutical company with a presence in 17 countries. It focuses on the development and commercialization of niche, hospital, and orphan products to respond to unmet medical needs. Nordic Group’s expertise relies on the development and sales of its own products, but also on partner products acquired at various stages of development. In addition to seven in-house lines, Nordic Group comprises Disphar International in the Netherlands, QPharma Manufacturing in Sweden, Nordic Pharma in the Netherlands, Nordic Pharma Affiliates and Nordic Drugs in Nordic region.
Together with local partner Epista Life Science, Supply Chain Wizard will guide end-to-end execution of a comprehensive serialization and track & trace program, allowing Nordic Group to achieve cost-effective regulatory compliance and, through analysis of newfound metrics, realize added value through improved overall efficiency and productivity. This multi-phased serialization project will include managing packaging line integration and validation, IT system implementation and validation, CMO/customer onboarding and IT connectivity.
The program’s main markets for serialization compliance are the US and EU regions, for the USA’s Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) and EU Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) regulations. Vendors selected for the project span the full spectrum of hardware and software solutions, including Wipotec-OCS, Advanco and Tracelink.
Supply Chain Wizard offers consulting services and state-of-the-art solutions toward cost-effective compliance with serialization mandates, as well as post-go-live operational support.
“We are honored to be selected to implement this multi-faceted European serialization project, which we developed with Nordic Group through a comprehensive strategic planning process,” says Evren Ozkaya, Founder & CEO of Supply Chain Wizard. “Successful management of this complex venture will further demonstrate our ability to deliver large-scale projects and showcase our multi-vendor management and integration capabilities.”
