Global logistics service provider DHL took home two accolades at the recent Logistics & Materials Handling Mercury Awards in Sydney. DHL's Pfizer Direct distribution model garnered the logistics company two awards, for Logistics Leader and Top Third Party Logistics Supplier. Pfizer Direct allows community pharmacies around Australia to order Pfizer’s prescription medicines for next business day delivery, through either their Pfizer representative or online, via a point of sale system, phone or fax. "This project has been extremely significant, putting DHL Supply Chain at the forefront of the direct distribution business for the pharmacy sector," said Saul Resnick, vice president of Life Sciences and Healthcare Australia at DHL Supply Chain. Pfizer Australia has been a client of DHL's for more than 12 years. The new distribution model, which started in February this year, has already seen more than 18 million items processed with a delivery rate higher than 99% for in full and on time performance. "I am very proud of the team and all their efforts over the years towards the development, implementation and running of the Pfizer Direct distribution model. This award seals the terrific relationship we have with Pfizer that is going from strength to strength," said Resnick. DHL also achieved finalist status in the Supply Chain Innovation category.
