This eliminates distributors and reduces warehousing cost and inventory cost. UPS as a 3 PL offers a multimodal, International, direct to store service called UPS Trade Direct that provides shipment and custom consolidation with visibility across supply chain. Single-source management UPS acts as single point of contact between manufacturer and end customer and hence the entire shipping cycle is under management of one logistics provider. Shipping and customs consolidation UPS picks the shipments and consolidates shipments for each end customer and generates a single custom invoice thus simplifying the custom clearances and corresponding cost and saving substantial time. The shipments are deconsolidated in destination country and in UPS facility and placed in UPS package delivery or LTL system.

How Dr Reddys stay ready with Flexible Supply chain Dr Reddys has to face this constant challenge of making the generic drugs available the very next day the branded ones get off patent. Sometimes these dates are not known in advance as FDA approval comes sometimes as late as the patent expiry date. In this scenario Dr Reddy has to ensure quick and efficient response and make sure that drugs are made available fast as possible. Compounding the issues of efficient and quick SCM, are distances between distributors and retailers based in US and its manufacturing locations Speed Combined with Effective Order Fulfillment UPS handles all of its domestic prescription and over-the-counter drug distribution using a combination of UPS package and UPS Freight LTL services. Dr. Reddy's utilizes approximately 15,000 square feet of distribution space in UPS's Healthcare Logistics Center in Louisville, Kentucky. There, more than 800,000 sq. ft. of dedicated space is FDA registered and compliant to meet storage, information management, temperature control with applicable regulations and security requirements. The distribution process begins when UPS receives EDI orders from Dr. Reddy's customers into its order management system. UPS then picks packs and ships products and sends shipment confirmation to Dr. Reddy's. UPS also provides special services such as inserting product information. Expedited shipments can be processed to leverage the strategic logistics campus location near UPS Worldport®, the company's international package express and air freight hub nearby. Managing new product launches is a key component of the UPS solution for Dr. Reddy's. Before products are ready for market release, UPS quarantines them at its facility, where they can be stored in the controlled environment. As soon as FDA approval is secured, UPS can begin shipping with products arriving on customer shelves much faster than before. Customer Satisfaction Drives Results Dr Reddy achieved speed to market. Orders processing that used to take two to three days were streamlined to same-day fulfillment. UPS also helped Dr. Reddy's strengthen its relationships [Type text] Page 6
