Abstract

Effectively managing the pharma supply chain is crucial in order to ensure optimal safety of drugs. Various issues pertained to pharma logistics is evident namely shortage of medicines, fake medicines, vulnerabilities in security, etc., highlights the failures in pharma supply chain and the high stakes involved in this sector in comparison to any other sector. The study incorporates the guidelines of PRISMA in order to synthesize the literature. This paper makes an honest attempt to discuss the glitches in the pharma supply chain due to faulty systems in place. It further deliberates on the need for the implementation of blockchain so as to enable a foolproof track and trace system which goes on to avoid the occurrence of counterfeit drugs in the supply chain. This perspective highlights the opportunities that blockchain has, in the area of pharma supply chain and how vital it is for future adoption and implementation.
