Ensuring 100 percent business continuity—when and where you need it.

Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions provides the only network of distribution facilities that are fully redundant with people, systems and processes.  Our secure warehouses are managed by a Tier 1 validated Warehouse Management System and are equipped to store ambient, refrigerated, frozen and controlled drugs. We can also store your promotional and marketing materials. 
Warehouse operations

Warehouse operations

We deliver end-to-end distribution services that are flexible and scalable to fit your channel strategies, including:

  • Traditional 3PL services to wholesalers and specialty distributors
  • Direct distribution to physicians, specialty pharmacies and hospitals
  • Samples distribution to manufacturer reps and direct to physicians (or direct-to-physician)
  • Free drug distribution for expanded access, clinical trial transition, patient assistance programs, rapid therapy initiation and bridge programs

The backbone of our distribution services is the Elite Distribution Management System – an enterprise resource planning system that utilizes radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, allowing distribution center management to plan picking activity before inventory is allocated to each order. We are licensed to distribute in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and some foreign countries.
