Exploring Pharmaceutical Logistics with Supply Chain Students at University of Huddersfield

On 7th March, our CEO Amy Shortman will be speaking at a Healthcare Logistics and Supply Chain Management event at the University of Huddersfield. The event has been organised by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, and is aimed at inspiring local professionals and supply chain students alike.

Amy will be providing the initial Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Logistics Industry Overview, which will be followed by a series of talks covering automated technology, the NHS carbon footprint, and GS1 standards.

The event will also include a networking lunch, something which we at ASC believe is crucial in business. The opportunity to meet professionals from other areas within the industry and share knowledge and insights is invaluable. It was a similar networking event, run by Women in Logistics, which led to Amy becoming involved in this, after discussing with Bethany Fovargue, Operations manager at NOVUS Trust The Chartered Institute of Logistics, how to engage the next generation.

Amy is particularly looking forward to meeting with the supply chain students at the University of Huddersfield, sharing her experiences of working within the industry, and finding out what inspired them to start a career in this area.

Amy Shortman Becomes Fellow of CILT

Over the summer, ASC’s CEO Amy Shortman was accepted as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (FCILT). Chartered Fellows are highly respected within the industry, as this is the highest level of membership offered by the Institute and is only available to professionals who have been working in senior roles for at least 7 years.

Amy has over 20 years’ experience within the logistics industry. Her passion for delivering training and guidance to ensure compliance and best practise within the pharmaceutical logistics industry led to the founding of ASC in 2011, which now works with organisations across the globe. So it is wonderful to see Amy receiving this kind of recognition for her work and dedication to the industry.
