Brussels, Belgium: A new pharma-logistics initiative, Team-Up, was announced at the recent IATA AirPharma 2016 Conference in Brussels.
Team-Up will open the doors to faster, more equitable, more systematic supply chain integration
The industry-driven programme is designed to “bring real collaborative working to the pharmaceutical logistics sector”. All corporate participants will have access to a shared repository of collaborative tools, templates and advice.
Speaking at the conference, Team-Up founder Alan Kennedy stressed the urgent need for greater integration of the pharma-logistics supply chain: “With the huge challenges it is facing, the pharmaceutical logistics sector faces a very uncertain future unless it is prepared to abandon its traditional silo thinking and practices in favour of a more collaborative approach.
“The advent of the Team-Up integration framework will help accelerate the changes needed and open the doors to faster, more equitable, more systematic supply chain integration.
“There is no longer any excuse for inertia.” The Team-Up programme is scheduled to go live in January 2017, but interested parties are invited to find out more by downloading the prospectus from www.Team-Up.global.”
