How To Mitigate Pharma Supply Chain Risks

How To Mitigate Pharma Supply Chain Risks | Global Logistics Trends and News | Scoop.it
The best way to mitigate supply chain risks is collaboration.

Collaboration is the single best way to mitigate supply chain risks, as well as to enable significant improvements in terms of speed, on-time pickup and delivery, damage reduction, and other parameters, according to speakers at the September IQPC Cold Chain & Temperature Management Global Forum in Chicago. What organizations must accept is that communications and information-sharing goes both ways. By monitoring shipments and by accumulating, mining, analyzing, and sharing resultant data, logistics organizations throughout the supply chain can improve their operations and prevent future problems.

Johnson & Johnson understands that. Although its 50-person team knows its temperature control requirements and is alerted to excursions, “We need a more proactive approach,” says Alan Davis, supply chain temperature control leader, Johnson & Johnson. Therefore, the company is validating a solution to identify and understand the trends. “We need to use the data to recognize not just whether there were excursions, but how close shipments came to experiencing excursions.” With that information, the company can work with service and packaging material providers to strengthen the supply chain to prevent future excursions.
