The Critical Journey: Strategies for Time and Temperature-Sensitive Shipments: Susan Li, UPS Temp Sensitive Pkg Manager
Innovations in the Biopharma and Medical Device industries are generating a strong growth trajectory in the consumption and development of more biologic products. By 2018, seven of the top ten selling treatments will require temperature-sensitive storage and transportation. Diagnostic Labs, CROs, manufacturers, distributors and specialty pharmacies will all need more robust solutions to protect their shipments and mitigate risk. This discussion will focus on end-to-end product protection strategies being leveraged in the marketplace.

This workshop will focus on distribution and transportation network design, management strategies and tactics to create value for your organization.
