Supply chains across industries all over the world are broken and faltering. Pharmaceutical supply chains face the same challenges, with one big difference – the patient. While many pharmaceutical businesses are fighting to supply kits and find treatments and vaccines for COVID-19 – there are still patients with life-threatening illnesses or chronic diseases that need medications.
This panel of QA and logistics experts will share their experiences during COVID-19 in re-routing, re-planning their distribution center operations and supply chains. They will discuss contingency plans, current impact, and how they foresee business post-COVID. Discussion topics include:
