Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions
As the process of bringing products to market becomes increasingly complex, so have decisions around channel and access strategy. While thinking about getting products to providers and supporting patients through their treatment journey, pharmaceutical companies must consider a wide range of options. 

Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions provides a comprehensive, full-service channel offering to combine distribution, third-party logistics (3PL), patient support, and specialty pharmacy services. Our team of trusted advisers can help you develop integrated, configurable solutions that meet your unique needs and enhance product success. 

Specialty Pharmaceutical Distribution
With one of the largest health care supply chains in the United States, Cardinal Health Specialty Pharmaceutical Distribution offers unmatched capabilities for distributing specialty drugs into hospitals, alternate care sites, clinics, and physician offices. Our strategically located distribution centers enable delivery anywhere in the United States in 24 hours or less, and our proven technology enables high-quality and efficient patient care.

3PL Services
Cardinal Health 3PL Services delivers reliable, end-to-end logistics and order-to-cash management to help mitigate risk, reduce costs, and provide seamless, integrated service. We offer both traditional 3PL and direct distribution models to ensure your product will get to providers and patients at the right time and place. We leverage our state licenses to get your product to market faster through our industry-leading 3PL Title Model program. We also reduce the administrative burden of account reconciliation and order management through our best-in-class order-to-cash management service. The recent acquisition of A+ Secure Packaging has expanded our capabilities, adding serial number creation and packaging services to our offerings, enabling an end-to-end Drug Supply Chain Security Act-compliant solution. Our solutions are designed to provide you with visibility and confidence in your 3PL management.
