The pharmaceutical cool chain ensures transport and distribution of drugs under specific temperature conditions. One of the key challenges is to balance cost and quality, whilst adhering to specific regulations for cooling and monitoring drugs.
Packaging has to be able to withstand great environmental fluctuations and in conjunction with cooling devices has to maintain the temperature of the drug product or biological product between predefined limits. This is an outstanding challenge in emerging economies, especially when talking about the last mile and monitoring ambient temperature.
Key topics are:
Selection and validation of transportation partners
Identifying and managing risks along the cool chain
Ambient temperature and its transportation problems
Implementing upcoming EU regulations and industry standards (GDP)
Temperature-controlled supply chain in emerging markets
In addition to frequent networking breaks where participants can exchange experiences, they may also attend two interactive workshops on Friday, 31 August 2012; concerning the conversion of healthcare shipments from air freight to ocean cargo and mitigating supply chain risks.
