Driving Agility and Resilience During COVID Recovery and Beyond

12:00 pm - 12:05 pm Welcome Remarks

12:05 pm - 12:15 pm Chairperson’s Opening Remarks

In a March 2021 poll conducted by Verdict, 35% of respondents indicated that COVID-19 accelerated the digital transformation of the pharma industry by more than 5 years. The pandemic delayed elective surgeries and routine treatments, put a significant financial strain on healthcare budgets, disrupted supply chains and more. How have manufacturers across the industry accelerated the digital supply chain transformation? Where should you get started if you’re behind the curve?

Panelists will discuss:

  • How to work on the supply chain from a process and technology standpoint to keep in step with what’s happening with the business
  • How to conduct a capability assessment to understand where to best leverage technology
  • Key components for the foundational layer of the integrated supply chain to support the predictive and prescriptive layers that drive business value
  • What digital means for a more patient centric supply chain
  • Leveraging digital to improve end-to-end visibility

1:40 pm - 2:00 pm Fireside Chat: Balancing Resiliency and Efficiency for a Secure Supply Chain

From Hurricane Maria to COVID to the Suez Canal blockage, we’ve come to count on disruptions to the supply chain. According to the July 2020 report published by the Resilience360 and Business Continuity Institute (BCI), 60% of supply chain executives are planning to do deeper supply chain due diligence, with 57% planning to diversify suppliers geographically and 20% planning to increase inventory post COVID. How can you determine the sweet spot between just in time efficiency and just in case resiliency?

Find out how to:

  • Determine appropriate buffer capacity to boost resiliency
  • Diversify your global manufacturing network
  • Leverage technology to handle and manage disruptions

Temperature Controlled Supply Chain Excellence

2:05 pm - 2:30 pm Panel Discussion: Managing Connectivity and Improving End-to-End Visibility of Temperature Controlled Shipments

Each year, the biopharma industry loses roughly $35 billion as a result of failures in temperature controlled logistics. Despite advances in real time monitoring and temperature control, the industry continues to experience friction when it comes to getting the data from shippers to identify deviations. As more and more data is being shared, how can you achieve greater connectivity across the supply chain for temperature controlled shipments?

Find out how to:

  • Identify weaknesses in the end-to-end process
  • Collaborate with freight forwarders to bulletproof the process with the airlines
  • Communicate and react through third parties to get issues resolved quickly, correctly and efficiently
