The Logistics Management Department at Genentech has instituted an Inbound Routing Program as part of a comprehensive Supply Chain Management initiative. The objective is to provide suppliers with detailed instructions that will aid in streamlining the processes of receiving, stocking and consuming materials while reducing freight and handling costs.

If qualified packaging is not used, then the shipment must be sent via temperature controlled transportation and be 100% monitored.
