Pharma Cold Chain Summit 2018

Date: 17th October 2018 - 18th October 2018 Location: London - UK

The end-to-end pharmaceutical logistical chain involves all of the logistical operations of medicines (transport and storage), from the place of manufacture to delivery to healthcare establishments (clinics, hospitals and pharmacies). The transportation of medicines in a temperature-controlled environment means that this end-to-end pharmaceutical logistics via the ‘cold chain’ must be perfectly managed to guarantee the integrity of the medicines up until they are administered to the patient.

ACI’s first edition of Pharma Cold Chain 2018 Summit will bring together senior executives and experts from pharmaceuticals companies, freight specialists, supply chain and data monitoring experts, technology companies, solution providers, universities, key note associations and market analysts.

The two day event will give you an insight into the industry`s latest technology projects in the cold chain distribution, policy and regulations, focusing largely on the cold chain logistics, transportation of products, packaging solutions, data and temperature monitoring. What is more, the conference will give an insight into the emerging markets, prime industry advancements, new products and innovative ideas.
