IQPC Temp Controlled Conference: read the report

In London for the first time ever, more than 500 life-sciences professionals, healthcare logistics specialists and industry supply chain executives gathered at the dockside ExCel centre on the last day of January for the 16th Annual Temperature Controlled Logistics Conference. Never before has the pharma-logistics sector faced such a bewildering array of disruptive threats and awesome opportunities as it does now.

In a brave new world of globalisation, industry consolidation, political uncertainty and frenetic techno-change, the pharma-logistics sector confronts a growing array of challenges driven by rising costs, increasing complexity, greater regulatory oversight and ever-higher expectations in terms of patient safety. Over the course of two lively days of intense debate and earnest counsel, representatives from the £10BN pharma cold-chain logistics sector raised questions, considered solutions and examined ways in which the industry can meet these challenges head-on. It all made for a very varied, vigorous and instructive experience.

Check out the rest of the report by Mr Alan Kennedy from PartnerSave Limited of the IQPC Temperature Controlled Logistics Conference 2017 held in London on 31 January and 1 February. Get a first rate overview of the changing times in the pharma logistics industry - one of the most unmistakeable trends is the accelerating move away from airfreight to sea freight, says Mr Kennedy.
