The Partnership for Supply Chain Management is pleased to share our first newsletter for 2023.
Our year has been productive and rewarding so far. Our supply chain teams continue to deepen their expertise in the full-cycle procurement and delivery of complex capital equipment such as digital medical imaging equipment, Next Generation Sequencers, and waste management systems. We are also increasingly focused on offering our clients the full support they may need to receive, install, maintain, and optimally use these products. We also continue to support our clients with specialized health logistics services. Collaborating with our 3PLs, we take a tailored approach to shipment planning. Large shipments are optimized and may be staggered, split, consolidated or repalletized to ensure the most economical and environmentally friendly modes and solutions are pursued within reasonable lead times. 

In the newsletter below, we share some of our recent supply chain news and accomplishments.  
New PFSCM Netherlands Office
PFSCM started the year off on a high note by moving into our new operational office in the Netherlands. Our new facility has been designed for productivity, creativity, and collaboration. Every detail has been selected with sustainability in mind, and we look forward to serving our clients and stakeholders from our energy-efficient workplace at Beneluxlaan 2B in Woerden.
Annual Report 2022
PFSCM published our Annual Report for 2022. The report highlights some of the supply chain stories that we are most proud of. Don't miss this opportunity to read about what our organization has done to grow, diversify and work more digitally to ensure we maintain supply chain excellence and meet and exceed the expectations of our clients.

PFSCM collaborated with a host of supply chain stakeholders to solve a unique issue of unaligned Harmonized System codes for a large time- and temperature-sensitive order of COVID-19 products originating from Asia and destined for Guinea.

Excellent stakeholder relationships and accountability across various supply chain stakeholders resulted in the exceptionally smooth and quick delivery of more than 2.4 million HIV tests worth more than $2.2 million.

PFSCM worked closely with a principal recipient in Benin to help them secure two new Illumina MiSeq sequencing systems. It was the first time PFSCM procured and delivered NGS machines. The organization is proud to have again supported Benin in its efforts to fight pandemics through quick and accurate diagnostics.

Despite Pakistan’s trade restrictions on imports from India, production delays and reefer container shortages, PFSCM was able to assist the Directorate of Malaria Control in the country with large and urgent deliveries of malaria rapid diagnostic test kits. In total, in 2022, PFSCM delivered more than 459,153 MRDT kits worth almost $4 million to Pakistan.

With a focus on supply chain efficiency, PFSCM actively identifies opportunities to optimize pallet and container loading for high-volume and high-freight cost orders. In 2021 and 2022, PFSCM optimized more than 1,000 ocean and charter flight shipments, saving $5 million.

Effective supply chain services are critical in ensuring quality and affordable tuberculosis health products for screening and treatment are available when and where needed.
