Rapid Credit Program
Many pharmacies rely on an outside vendor to handle their reverse pharmaceutical distribution process to garner return credits. Often it takes 6-12 months or more to receive credit and potentially longer to reconcile those credits via traditional credit programs.
The Pharma Logistics Rapid Credit Program delivers your credit within 14 days from the date the items are received at our warehouse. It is a powerful enhancement to reverse distribution services. Rapid Credit offers expedited processing for pharmaceutical product returns with both financial and operational benefits to a pharmacy. Meaning, you can boost your cash flow, allowing you to use the money where it is needed to provide the best possible service to your customers.
