Successful “Pharma Supply Chain Trends Symposium” in Marburg.
Pharmaserv Logistics organises the first industry meeting for pharmaceutical company experts and managers.
The pharmaceutical logistics and pre-wholesale experts from Pharmaserv Logistics recently held their first-ever industry symposium, which was attended by numerous experts and managers from various pharmaceutical companies. Conceived as an industry meeting place and networking forum, the symposium focused on forward-looking topics and trends in the pharmaceuticals industry.
“Our goal with the ‘Pharma Supply Chain Trends Symposium 2016’ was to give participants added value for their daily work in just one afternoon. Looking at the consistently positive feedback, I think we achieved it,” said Dr. Martin Egger, director of Pharmaserv Logistics. Along with an exclusive insight into the current study “Trends in Pharma Logistics” being conducted by the corporate consulting company Miebach Consulting, the programme included a presentation on “Supply chain collaboration – how can pharmaceutical companies and logistic service providers work together to achieve success?” by Prof. Dr. Zielke from Mittelhessen University of Applied Sciences. The afternoon of presentations was rounded off by a talk on “Supply chain integrity – controlling volatile supply chains” by Dr. Ulrich Franke, director of the Institute for Supply Chain Security. Questions from the public were naturally also addressed during the panel discussion that followed.

Before coming together for the evening meal, the event organiser invited participants on a tour of the new “Central Pharma Distribution Center” at the Behringwerke site in Marburg. 30 visitors took the opportunity to see efficient logistics for temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products in action. “All in all, we are very satisfied with our event, as almost 10% of those invited took part. We only sent personal invitations and did not advertise the event in order to emphasise its exclusivity,” said Manuel Papstein, Senior Manager Business Development.
