Pharmaceutical supply chain is a key pillar of a successful healthcare system and logistics is a cornerstone of strong supply chain where Private sector contributes enormously. Though the private pharmaceutical sector is a key pillar of the healthcare system in Rwanda, few or no studies have assessed the quality of the practices in the sector. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of logistics on the performance of the supply chain in private pharmaceutical sector in Rwanda. A cross-sectional study design was adopted. A questionnaire was used and data was analyzed using inferential statistics. The results of the study revealed logistics to be a predictor of supply chain performance in private pharmaceutical supply chain in Rwanda and for 1-unit increase in logistics performance there is 0.48-unit increase in Supply chain performance. The findings revealed a positive and statistically signification relationship between transportation and supply chain performance (B=0.705, p<0.005). Finally, they showed that inventory management, warehousing and information sharing have a positive but no statistical significant relationship with supply chain performance. More studies are needed to back our findings and a continuous professional development of pharmacists in the area of logistics for better decision taking is recommended
