FlyPharma Conference 2016, Brussels

Henry Moran, our Chief Operating Officer, spoke at the FlyPharma Conference in June. Here he shares his experience of the conference and explains why networking is such an important part of what we do.

I’m just back after a quick trip over to Brussels to present at the recent FlyPharma conference, where I gave a presentation on Supply Chain Security in the Life Science sector.

I really believe that the Life Science sector is very focused on Temperature Management within the supply chain, but to be honest security is as important, if not more.

FlyPharma is a relatively new conference forum and ASC have had the pleasure and honour of presenting at both the 2015 and now 2016 events. The conference brings together experts from the air freight industry, so it is really good to see airlines, ground handlers and freight forwarders all in the same environment, openly discussing and debating Life Science logistics.

However, it would be really great to get some more representation from the Pharma manufacturers community, so they can see how the logistics industry is embracing the challenge.

What I really like about FlyPharma is the fact that it is focused – i.e. it’s not too big. There is plenty of opportunity to network, meet old friends and colleagues, and make new ones. It’s great to hear that the plans are afoot for the 2017 conference already – perhaps we’ll see you there!

Here at ASC we believe that networking within the sector is really valuable to the work we do – it enables us to stay up-to-date with the latest developments and be at the forefront of any changes made. Alongside attending conferences we also regularly share information and news stories on our LinkedIn Pages – why not connect with us over there?
