Healthcare refers to the maintenance or improvement of health, and healthcare service is delivered by health professionals in allied health fields. Healthcare logistics is the logistics of pharmaceuticals, medical and surgical supplies, medical devices and equipment, and other products needed to support doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers. The supply chain redesign of pharmaceutical products and logistics system saturation are some of the important challenges faced by the healthcare sector



Due to the low availability of pharmaceutical products and medical devices in rural areas, governments are taking initiatives to improve the health infrastructure. This is one of the main growth drivers for the healthcare logistics market. Furthermore, growing global pharmaceutical sales and new product launches by pharmaceutical manufacturers, such as over-the-counter drugs, are expected to increase during the forecast period. Many pharmaceutical companies and research institutes are actively engaged in the research and development of treatments for COVID-19. Over-the-counter drug and generic drug manufacturers are focusing on the development of specific medicine for treating minor alignments, which will further help boost sales.

Rising fuel costs have made pharmaceutical companies to choose seaborne shipments. The preference for seaborne shipments and the growing initiatives to promote cold chain logistics are a few major factors that are expected to promote the growth of the market. Various pharmaceutical companies are preferring seaborne transportation over air or roadways. For instance, AstraZeneca, a leading multinational pharmaceutical company, shifted around 65% of its product transportation to seaborne transportation that will have a positive impact on the seaborne transportation type.
