Introducing Wally the UV disinfecting robot
In partnership with Corvus Robotics, we have implemented "Wally" the UV disinfection robot in our distribution centers to ensure maximum cleanliness and associate safety. The UV disinfection robot is able to complete automated routes on a custom schedule and provides sanitation logs and records for accountability. Wally's 6-bulb UV technology kills aerial and surface infectants, with a proven 99.9%+ efficacy in seconds. The technology is also safe for people to be present while wearing UV-treated protective eyewear.

Safeguarding the supply chain
The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) is a crucial step forward in securing the pharmaceutical supply chain in the United States. As a leader in global healthcare solutions, we are dedicated to helping manufacturers and providers improve product access and enhance patient care. Our expansive presence across all points in the supply chain gives us a unique understanding of how DSCSA will impact the pharmaceutical industry as a whole. Because of this, we’ve led the way in implementing DSCSA changes in the industry and encouraging alignment and collaboration between stakeholder groups. As a leader and participant in various industry coalitions, we have worked to develop cutting-edge compliance solutions that will help create a harmonized, safer, more secure system for all. And we’re already looking ahead to full DSCSA implementation, partnering with organizations to test new programs in anticipation of 2023’s requirements.
