Pharmaceutical Commerce - July/August 2013 - (Page 20)

Supply Chain/ Logistics The annual IQPC cold chain event has expanded over recent years from a couple days in Philadelphia to a week-long event in Chicago. There is increased emphasis not only on global cold chain logistics practices, but now with an ancillary meeting, “Supply Chain Integrity, Risk and Data” that touches on the evolution of track-and-trace programs and anti-counterfeiting in drug distribution. The combination makes sense—numerous observers have noted that many of the same tracking mechanisms for monitoring a cold chain shipment function similarly to a track-and-trace system in conventional distribution. The newly promulgated EU Good Distribution Practice (GDP) guidelines specify actions to improve supply chain integrity during shipments. The combination also signals the growing importance of managing controlled roomtemperature (CRT) shipments—which are practically everything else pharmaceutical besides cold chain products. The week begins with two days of pre-exhibition workshops, covering topics such as overall temperature-controlled shipping, packaging design, active refrigeration systems and packaging qualification. Once the formal conference gets underway, it kicks off with a panel discussion bringing regulators from FDA, the European Medicines Agency, Health Canada, the China FDA and others. There follow a series of tracks: cold chain packaging; supply chain integrity; and global supply chain logistics. The second day has plenary sessions on cold chain optimization and active vs. passive shipping (among others), followed by tracks on: • Clinical trials • Ocean freight • CRT and ambient products • Risk management process development • GDP requirements • Systems for real-time visibility • Data systems and stability budgets, among others. Cold chain around the world The last day of the week is given over to “International Focus Day,” with sessions on regulatory and technology frameworks in India, China, Brazil and Russia (most intriguing topic: “How to Ship to Siberia”). The emerging-markets or developing-nation focus is a natural; these regions combine both the most challenging supply chain situations, and the targeted growth areas of the global life sciences industry. Pharmaceutical Commerce is a media sponsor of the event, and will have a presence at the meeting.
