About the British Association of Pharmaceutical Wholesalers
The British Association of Pharmaceutical Wholesalers (BAPW) is the trade association for an essential, but often overlooked, part of the medicines supply chain - full-line pharmaceutical wholesalers.
The BAPW represents only full line wholesalers (as opposed to short line operators). This is an important distinction to make since short liners only stock and supply products where they can make the biggest profit margins. Full line wholesalers on the other hand offer a full range of products to their customers, even those lines where there is little or no profit mark up.
It is the BAPW's responsibility to its members to ensure that their interests are represented; that their views are respected; and that the vital role that they play in the supply chain is valued by policy-makers and other key stakeholders.
