    Abstract

    Wholesale distributors in the United Kingdom and the United States are aware of the magnitude of the
    changes that have taken place in medicine distribution systems. They have responded with innovative
    logistics strategies to deal with this highly competitive environment. Their new services rely on an
    ambidextrous supply chain strategy (i.e. exploitative and explorative logistics innovation). This
    research explored those innovative processes and the results concluded that wholesale distributors
    are developing practices to achieve a high level of operational efficiency, which at the same time
    develop new logistics solutions to provide a competitive advantage, thereby securely maintaining their
    position in the drug supply chain.
