Cold chain logistics is currently one of the biggest growth areas in the pharmaceutical industry, particularly for companies operating in emerging markets such as Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
The safe handling of vaccines as well as other temperature sensitive products and materials has given rise to a need for stronger vigilance with regards to the integrity of cool chain in the region. Transgressions not only result in regulatory non-compliance issues but also cost dearly in terms of meeting supply deadlines and product wastage.
Our Keynote speaker, Elena Adusei, Distribution Director, Customer & Logistics Services, Russia & CIS cluster, J&J enterprise (a division of Johnson & Johnson), will provide firsthand insight into the landscape of cool chain logistics in Russia & the CIS. The following issues will be addressed using practical examples:
1. Primary challenges and opportunities
2. Current regulatory landscape
3. State of infrastructure
4. Future horizon
Elena Adusei is an accomplished leader in supply chain management with a track record of over 15 years inspiring teams and delivering significant results in highly regulated market environments. Currently Ms. Adusei is Distribution Director, Customer & Logistics Services, Russia & CIS cluster, J&J enterprise (MD&D, Janssen, Consumer), based in Moscow. She also has a wide range of supply chain experience working for various companies including Janssen, GlaxoSmithKline HealthCare, Novartis Consumer HealthCare, and Varta Geretebattery GMBH.
