UPS urges for inclusion of Track and Trace Proposal

UPS, one of the global leaders in express parcel and logistics services, has called on the US government to provide a 50-state solution for the “Track and Trace Proposal” for the supply chain safety of medicines.

In a statement issued on 26th July 2012, UPS said that part of the Track and Trace Proposal would be the introduction of a national system in order “to ensure safe passage of drugs and medical products across the U.S.”. According to the carrier, current regulations would not allow this.

The proposal is supported by the Pharmaceutical Distribution Security Alliance (PDSA) and has not been included in the final bill so far.
