What to look forward to at TCL 2018!

In planning the 2018 Temperature Controlled Logistics conference (taking place in London from January 29th-February 1st) we surveyed over 50 senior supply chain and logistics experts from big and small pharmaceutical companies, as well as from consumer industries. The main question we were looking to answer was: what is the main factor that defines a cost effective, secure, and GDP compliant temperature controlled supply chain that experiences minimal temperature excursions? The overarching answer was clear: planning. Strengthen your end-to-end supply chain planning, and your temperature controlled logistics will be easier, cheaper, and better.

In recognition of this, TCL 2018, takes you on a journey from the beginning of your supply chain, to the very end. Our three separate streams will look at:

1.       Pre-Transportation – with sessions such as “Enabling End-to-End Supply Chain Planning, Visibility, and Decision Making through Standardization & IT Integration Across Global Sites” (Merck) and “Optimizing Lane Qualification with all Supply Chain Stakeholders in Challenging Shipping Environments” (Bayer)

2.       Transportation – with sessions such as “A Global Approach to Reducing Temperature Excursions” (Genzyme) and “Maintaining Temperature Control in the World’s Most Challenging Situations” (Médecins Sans Frontières)

3.       Last Mile and Post-Distributionwith sessions such as “Last Mile Distribution – The Final Stage of End-to-End Temperature Monitoring (EZR Group) and “Working with Partners to Close Gaps in the Last Mile” (Novartis)

Our goal is for each and every delegate who attends TCL 2018 to leave understanding what best practice planning and execution looks like at every stage of their temperature Controlled Supply Chain. With over 50 case studies from pharmaceutical manufactures and regulatory bodies that address key operational and strategic considerations, bring your team to ensure coverage of all relevant sessions.  

Our world famous exhibition will, as per tradition, run parallel to the conference, so that you have the chance to identify solution providers who can support the implementation of new solutions and strategies. In the brand new location of Twickenham Stadium, the big red London bus won’t be joining us, but we have plenty of new surprises that await!  We look forwarded to welcoming you in January and showing you.
