Do you ship your products via airplane? Is it going to be delayed?

Is there someone who can step into their job role and be able to carry out the process?

Whether you are a pharmacy or warehouse you need to be prepared for potential disasters. From extreme weather conditions to your quality manager/pharmacist crashing the car on the way to work, you need to be prepared. You will need to document the process you intend to follow in the event of a disaster as well as train the team around you so they understand where and what they would have to do.
