Schiphol Cargo’s resident pharma and lifescience logistics expert, Bart Pouwels, is among the Elite Speaker Faculty for this year’s Life Sciences Supply Chain Summit, covering the shipping of pharmaceuticals, medical devices and healthcare products (November 20-21, Hotel Mercure, Amsterdam).
He will share the stage with other experts from many of the world’s leading manufacturers and shippers in the sector.
The conference – now in its fourth year - will focus on the impact of global regulation on supply chains, the potential role of value chain collaboration in saving costs, exploiting new markets, and supply chain management as a market differentiator in the healthcare sector.
Topics such as supply chain segmentation, direct-to-customer delivery, overcoming obstacles in emerging markets, relationships between shippers and their LSPs, and the future of the lifesciences supply chain will also be examined.
In addition to the two-day conference and its presentations, panels and interactive peer discussions, one to one meetings will also be available between users and suppliers of logistics services.
