Temperature Controlled Logistics 2018 Agenda

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:

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Last Mile and Post-Distribution – with 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)

Optimising Your CRT Transportation Strategy

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.

Ahead of the Temperature Controlled Logistics Summit 2018, 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.

Supply Chain Management

Smarter Data Management

Supply chains in a range of industries, including pharma, are becoming digitised. New research forecasts that over the next eight years, the value of the global connected logistics market will surge from US$10.21bn to US$55.17bn. Connected logistics incorporates sensors that provide real-time information on road conditions, weather and shipping lane traffic when connected to internal and external data feed. This sort of insight is required by pharma manufacturers to protect a drug’s chain of custody. This technology develops the collaboration between the supply chain’s various stakeholders (warehouse managers, product quality managers, operations logistics providers) all working to reduce the chance of temperature excursions. These devices and software of course require significant investment. For the next stage of lane mapping and continuous monitoring to be reached some experts believe that severe losses will have to be felt on shipments – through theft or temperature excursions rendering products unusable – for companies to realise how much they actually need to implement this technology.

Tracking & Packaging

Stress Testing Your Containers

Temperature control containers are vital to protecting the stability of life‑saving medicines during transit. When comparing models, many firms struggle to determine which packages they should invest in; due to the lack of standardisation in qualification testing conducted by the manufacturers. The existing guidance on qualification testing is helpful, but the number of different thermal profiles and testing procedures used in the market (regarding product loads, preconditioning requirements, etc.), can create confusion when trying to directly compare containers. Selecting the wrong container would be a significant waste of investment and risk the safety of high-value drugs as they travel through challenging climates. To assist with the navigation of this problematic landscape, this infographic provides insight on how to keep costs low and quality high when validating and qualifying temperature control containers.

Pharma partnerships - Mistakes that risk a break in your cold chain

Cold chain partnerships are largely a matter of trust. Once cargo is handed to a forwarder or carrier, shippers must rely on their partners to safely steward their temperature-sensitive products through the cold chain. Effective, reliable partners should show low levels of wasted product from supply chain errors, because a tested and refined process best controls temperature fluctuations. We enlisted insight from; Guy Hoskens, Clinical Supply Chain Logistics Expert, Janssen, Alan Kennedy, Founder, Team-up Global and Luiz Barberini, Operations Manager- External Manufacturing Latin America Head, Bayer to examine some key collaboration mistakes that could trigger a break in a cold chain.

The Value of Air Freight in Temperature Controlled Logistics

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.
