UPS Pain in the Chain survey is one of the best ways to understand where life science companies stand on the issues making logistics a headache and keeping executives up at night. Since 2008, the survey of healthcare and life science supply chain professionals has attempted to determine the needs of these companies. It has since become a popular and helpful barometer of supply chain issues afflicting the healthcare industry. The recently released 8th iteration of the survey was conducted between April and June 2015. A total of 421 interviews of logistics executives were conducted in 16 countries. To gain further insights into trends, challenges, and opportunities, 15 separate qualitative interviews were conducted in North America.
