Daiichi Sankyo is a global pharmaceutical company with corporate origins in Japan. They provide ground-breaking products and services in more than twenty countries around the world. They have more than 100 years of scientific expertise and draw upon a rich legacy of innovation and a robust pipeline of promising new medicines to help patients.

Daiichi Sankyo approached Mawdsleys’ Pre-Wholesale (MPW) in January 2016; seeking a flexible, cost effective pre-wholesale distributor, that excelled in efficiency. 


After discussing Daiichi Sankyo’s requirements, MPW successfully delivered an integration of Daiichi Sankyo’s SAP (Systems Applications Products) IT systems and Mawdsleys’ IT software; in turn allowing for a complete order to cash service.

MPW implemented a seamless transition of stock from Daiichi Sankyo’s previous service provider within the first month. Such a rapid response to support stock levels is a particular strength of MPW.

Owing to the pro-active and fast approach to demands that MPW pride themselves on, Daiichi Sankyo UK Ltd were able to provide continual service to a demanding market from week one. With such a significant development they were able to rapidly fulfil orders across their portfolio and ensure continual supply to UK patients.


The flexible and bespoke service offered to each and every client has made the relationship between MPW and Daiichi Sankyo a success. MPW has managed to cut service costs without limiting service levels and improve communication channels to both Daiichi Sankyo UK Ltd and their customers.

“The smooth service we have experienced with MPW has been outstanding. It is particularly impressive because it was during a product launch and a product transfer from another manufacturer. We consistently experience a highly professional manner and have no apprehensions in the services we have come to rely on. We would not hesitate to recommend MPW to any company within the industry and thank them for their fast and efficient work so far”.
