Strengthening end to end cold chain practices in storage, distribution, and ensuring compliance of temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals and clinical supplies

Global storage and transport of temperature-sensitive drugs, biopharmaceuticals and clinical materials presents a tremendous challenge for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. With the overwhelming complexity of assuring product integrity throughout the entire distribution chain, increased scrutiny placed on in-transit temperature control and monitoring and huge costs that can be potentially incurred due to temperature excursions, it is more important than ever to get cold chain management right the first time.

Pharma IQ’s 3rd Annual Bio / Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Management Asia is the only event of its kind in the region and will look at Asia-specific cold chain management issues.

The 3rd Annual Bio / Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Management Asia provides the largest and most comprehensive forum for Asian pharmaceutical and biotechnology professionals involved in the temperature-controlled supply chain. Attendees will be able to network with and learn from other organizations who face similar challenges in monitoring, controlling, and maintaining the temperature of products throughout the supply chain – from manufacturing to warehousing, wholesalers, pharmacies, hospitals, and ultimately to the end user.

The 3rd Annual Bio / Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Management Asia will feature revolutionary content designed to advance temperature-sensitive supply chain practices through technical case studies and panel discussions.

Key discussion topics at the event include:
Understand how you can improve temperature monitoring and manage unforeseen causes of temperature excursions when your product leaves the warehouse
Hear how you can effectively manage risks and challenges for temperature controlled distribution of pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals in Asia
Updating temperature controlled storage and distribution practices to meet international regulations and industry standards
Assess new solutions and advancements in temperature-controlled packaging and monitoring
Analyze how you can manage clinical trial supply chain challenges including temperature control, shipping of clinical supplies to international destinations, and partnering with logistics providers and CROs
Evaluate alternative modes of transport and distribution routes in Asia Pacific that can help you maximize your transport spend whilst minimizing risks
Overcoming specific challenges in cold chain storage and distribution in Asian countries which include India, China, Indonesia and Philippines
Validating and qualifying your cold chain distribution networks particularly for launch products
Developing cost effective methods for small quantity shipments whilst ensuring product quality
Choosing the best partners and service providers in your chain, including transportation, packaging and storage
Ensuring cold chain security through to the last mile
Managing risks faced in the transfer of freight between modes of transport during the course of shipment from pick-up to delivery
The 3rd Annual Bio/Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Management Asia is more than an annual conference; it is a forum for year long discussion between thought-leaders and new entrants.
