Research and Markets: The Future of European Pharmaceutical Distribution: - In 2010 There Was No Sign That DTP Was Being E

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "The Future of European Pharmaceutical Distribution: The Impact of DTP on Manufacturers and Wholesalers" report to their offering.

Following developments in the UK, it was expected that direct-to-pharmacy distribution models would be introduced in other major European markets.

Reducing the number of wholesalers helps to reduce internal costs for manufacturers, and by dealing only with a few wholesalers may create more manageable business relationships
