Luxembourg Thursday 11th July 2019: Registration for the Cool Chain Association (CCA)’s Airfreight Pharma Conference has opened, promising a program that will shine a light on collaborative solutions to final mile challenges.

Sustainability and innovation will take centre stage, with topics ranging from the benefits of drones for the pharma chain, to learning from shippers about the importance of getting the cool chain right to help save infant lives.

Dr Radhika Batra, founder and President of Every Infant Matters, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) registered in India and dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged children, will join the debate with Wolfgang Engel, Head of Competence Center Logistics, DQS, and Niels van Namen, Vice President Healthcare, UPS Europe.

Other panellists include Nourddin Odris, Head of Transport management Global Supply Chain, Roche, Agnes Turek, Project Manager Services, Bayer, and Navid Choudhury, Senior Manager, Supply Chain Planning, Novo Nordisk.

“Cool Chain partners are seeking new ways whereby stakeholder collaboration delivers a cost-effective, and high-quality service in a rapidly changing pharma landscape,” said Stavros Evangelakakis, Global Product Manager, Cargolux and Chairman, CCA.

“We need new ways of working together to meet the growing demands of our pharma customers and ensure that when it comes to the last mile, we are part of the solution.

“There is a clear need for all stakeholders to investigate ways to collaborate and find solutions to make sure there is a successful end-to-end chain.

“Embracing new innovations and technology is at the forefront of the debate to help fix the problem.” The CCA event, at the Marriott, Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris will include a mix of panel discussions, presentations, and debate, as well as round table discussions and networking opportunities.
