Läkemedelsdistributionen i Norden. En komparativ studie av aktörer, resurser och aktiviteter.

Christoffer Holmberg, Hans Kjellberg () and Björn Axelsson ()

Abstract: This paper reports on a preliminary studie of the organising of pharmaceutical goods distribution in the Nordic countries. Based on close descriptions of the four national markets, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, a comparative analysis is made. The chosen comparative dimensions are: activity structures and actor constellations; vertical and horisontal integration; service levels; and pricing system.

Despite their apparent similarities the four national markets display many differences in these dimensions. Further, within each national market, there are considerable differences between how the distribution operations are described in principle and how they appear when observed in practice.
