Wholesalers unite to create CSO information resource

Pharmacy wholesalers Symbion, Sigma, API and National Pharmacies have joined together to produce a central source for all medicine supply chain product information.

Information about all products offered by the Community Service Obligation (CSO) wholesalers will be incorporated into a single secure database managed by GS1 Australia.
