Speakers: Volker Kirchner & Andreas Kjällander
More manufacturers need to ship more – and more valuable – medical material over longer distances, and under more stringent temperature requirements, than ever before. That’s the new reality of the industry today.
Targeted therapies, clinical trials, biologics, personalized medicines and many approved drugs all require more precise and secure temperature control in the supply chain. At the same time, the need to source and serve patients in countries further from the point of manufacture is increasing rapidly . The value of the products and samples being shipped is greater, and is counted not only in currency, but in patients’ lives.
In this webinar we hear from two of World Courier’s most experienced associates as they discuss how the supply chain and temperature control options have evolved, and how manufacturers can really get distribution right.
Explore the special requirements for shipping new medicines, what packaging options are available and how to choose wisely
How manufacturers can leverage technology to ensure an unbroken supply chain, with zero temperature excursions
How to identify regulatory, airline and customs requirements and the importance of compliance for successful shipping
Identifying and mitigating risks through collaboration and advance planning
