Distribution Services Structure for Europe: Norgine deal report
B P Collins LLP advised Norgine in connection with the negotiation and closing of a European Master Services Agreement and an associated local service contract structure for outsourced transportation, warehousing and distribution services.
The framework was designed to facilitate the implementation of standardised processes and commercial arrangements aimed at improving distribution efficiency and customer service for Norgine.
