The Only Event To Offer Tangible Take-Homes ThroughoutYour End-To-End Temperature Controlled Logistics Journey – From Supply Chain Planning To Last Mile Distribution
Each January for the past 16 years, more than 500 senior supply chain, logistics, storage, regulation and quality experts from the pharmaceutical industry have gathered at the TCL Forum for the largest, longest running and most comprehensive pharmaceutical cold chain and ambient logistics conference in Europe.
In January 2019 industry experts will once again come together in London to share their perspectives on supply chain innovation, logistics cost reduction, and overall GDP compliance.
Global Participation and Worldwide Coverage
With presentations already secured from Europe, USA, Latin America, South Asia, China, Russia and South East Asia, TCL 2019 is THE MOST global event yet. Your supply chain has worldwide coverage, and so do we - meet potential partners, and hear the experiences of temperature controlled logistics specialists from all parts of the world.
End-to-End Supply Chain Innovation
We are the ONLY event that takes all delegates on a journey from planning their temperature controlled supply chain, through the different stages and mode of transport (though difficult regions, various temperature zones, on multiple forms of transport, right through the tricky last mile of distribution and back to re-planning.) The 2019 agenda will also feature brand new technology case studies never before presented anywhere, and a fantastic exhibition showcasing the latest technologies, meaning you're guaranteed to leave TCL19 with the solutions you need.
Interactive and Case Study Led Sessions
No ones wants theoretic overviews, that’s why we provide more real-life case studies (from success stories to war stories) than any other temperature controlled event out there. Make sure you get the answers you're looking for by participating in the interative panel sessions, discussion roundtables, networking sessions and live polling.

Optimising Your CRT
Approximately one-third of the medicines manufactured in Europe and the United States are now being tested and labeled for storage at controlled room temperature (CRT), mostly in the range of 15°C to 25°C and the proportion is increasing.
Pharma IQ sat down with Steve Winyard, Portfolio Strategy Manager Life Sciences at Inmark to discuss best practices for CRT transportation, an area which is facing increasing global regulatory scrutiny.
Pharma Sea Freight Working
This working group brings together the key stakeholders to drive unification and best practice in temperature controlled sea freight for pharmaceuticals.With that in mind the European Pharma Ocean Freight Working group has put together the following report, an initial guide to GDP transport for pharmaceuticals by sea freight.The report has developed into a fairly detailed (but not exhaustive) “how-to” and “this might happen” list, where all the known factors can be taken into account and appropriate risk mitigation measures put in place.
The Value of Air Freight in
Multiple factors affect the decision to choose a particular mode of transport for pharmaceuticals. On the back of feedback received on the topic of air freight vs sea freight, Pharma IQ interviewed two industry experts about their thoughts on the continuing importance of air freight in the transportation of temperature controlled pharmaceuticals.
