Our Pharmacy Distribution Approach | Morris & Dickson

The right approach for today’s pharmacies

Morris & Dickson understands the pressures pharmacies are under to reduce costs, increase profits, remain competitive, and streamline operations, all while elevating patient care. That’s why our mission is “pharmacies and patients first.”

Today, M&D continues to grow with sales approaching $6 billion, making it the largest independent full-line pharmaceutical distributor in the country. And while we have the size and scale for competitive pricing and selection, what we deliver best is extra-mile personal service, quick response, and simple, no-games pricing. Here are just a few other reasons to trust family-owned Morris & Dickson.

Pharmacy focus

The company began as a Shreveport apothecary in 1841 and today we deliver to hospital, independent, specialty, and alternate care pharmacies across 27 states (and counting).

Extensive inventory

Over 30,000 pharmaceutical and healthcare products spanning brands, generics, vaccines, and specialty drugs—as well as home health and OTC products—all delivered next-day at exceptional pricing.

Expansive distribution center

A 12-acre facility with 450,000 square feet of warehouse that is virtually tornado- and hurricane- proof, and among the largest single-site inventories in the entire industry.

State-of-the-art automation

Fully autonomous robotic picking station, five pick stations, and 10 replenish stations with the capacity for 100,000 lines per hour and an error rate of just 1 in 60,000.

Specialized storage

Chemo, hazardous, and flammable areas for special handling, plus ultra-cold (-80°C), freezer (-20°C), and refrigerated (-8°C) storage.

Reliable delivery

MDT (M&D Transportation LLC) owns and operates a ground transportation fleet of 30 CDL line haul trucks and 110 delivery vans, providing Morris & Dickson with reliable, next-day deliveries, six days a week, across 19 states. Additional states are delivered via Fed-x and UPS.

It’s easier to advance by seizing opportunities rather than trying to create opportunities.
