Importance of end-to-end supply chain

Pharmaceutical supply chain – a key topic of discussion at the launch of Temperature Controlled Logistics in Biopharmaceuticals USA – is an arising topic of concern amongst professionals. Temperature maintenance is a difficult process and this issue is only worsened by insufficient knowledge from each point of the supply chain.

This event will be covering this area in detail to ensure quality is carried across all the way until the drugs reaches the customer. The key point that we need to work on is the end of the supply chain, when it reaches the retailer. Knowledge is not passed on to this area which is a large problem when it comes to waste and low quality.

Current supply chain challenges:

·         Lack of coordination

·         Lack of knowledge

·         Expiration

·         Human resource dependency

·         Transportation

Supply chain experts will provide presentations on strategies that can be implemented to improve these sectors. With more and more drugs being introduced each year, the pharma supply chain needs to revisit its methods to cope with the pipeline of new introductions that we are expecting in the future.

New methods of temperature control will be introduced in the coming years so to improve our processes; pharma companies are going to have to introduce new models of communication and supply chain management. It cannot be denied that supply chain management is crucial in ensuring the deliverance of high quality drugs to the patient and the introduction of this year’s new USA event aims to make sure that the supply chain of pharmaceuticals gets more awareness in order to decrease high risk areas.

Gene Yuan (Roche) will be joining us to explain how we can minimize downfalls during the last mile and to show us how the whole supply chain can set an example for retailers to ensure the correct care is provided when passed over.
