Workshop and events
On Thursday, 27 September 2018, 4Advice collaborated with FB logistics to launch its first Drive.Pharma event, which was specifically aimed at logistics service providers who transport temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products by road.
Transporters, freight forwarders, express services, service providers and pharma shippers were invited to this brand-new initiative. All of them are after all the most important links in the global pharma supply chain and they have made substantial investments in order to comply with the strict GDP-requirements.
The problem is that these companies don’t always receive the recognition they deserve. On the contrary, many transporters who don’t operate GDP compliant or who are not CEIV certified, are often subcontracted to transport pharma products. As this is unfair, the Drive.Pharma initiative searches for solutions. Topics that were discussed on the event were:
- How can we facilitate the collaboration between pharma shippers and transporters?
- How can we properly acknowledge those who are GDP/CEIV-compliant?
- Is there a need for an approved pharma transportation certificate?
Various speakers spoke at this prestigious event, in particular:
- Eddy Weygaerts, Transportation Manager at Pfizer
- Hugo Van Herck, Director Contract Logistics at Yusen
- Frank Van Gelder, Secretary General at Pharma.Aero
- Nathan De Valck, Cargo & Product Development Manager at Brussels Airport
- Christophe Vandenberghe, Branch Manager at FB Logistics
- Geert Verniers, BD Director & Partner at 4Advice
All of them spoke about different topics in the pharma supply chain, which led to interesting insights and constructive discussions. The focus was placed on the GDP/CEIV-certification and the challenges of pharma transportation within the Global Cold Supply Chain. At the end there also was an interactive panel discussion with several speakers and attendees.
Because of the event’s success and positive feedback, we are planning to launch a second Drive.Pharma event, so stay tuned!
