  2. 2. Dear Colleague, Recently, the international consulting firm Oliver Wyman, conducted a survey with more than 30 CEOs of top global air cargo players which indicated "Temperature-controlled and pharmaceutical shipping are widely expected to lead the recovery in terms of growth rates" and "The most immediate CEO investment priorities include... cold chain capabilities.” These findings give a clear picture as to the growing importance of cold chain management for pharmaceuticals. The number of cold chain shipments by air, road and sea continue to increase due to greater temperature ranges to adhere to (15-30°) and novel biotech drugs coming onto the market. As a professional responsible for temperature control products, the 8th Annual Cold Chain Distribution for Pharmaceuticals Global Forum is the perfect place to get up to speed with the latest technology, processes and regulations that are necessary to operate a cost-effective and compliant temperature control supply chain. The Global Forum is the largest and most comprehensive event of its kind. By attending, you will have the choice to attend 34 conference presentations, 5 panel discussions, 6 specialist discussion forums, 10 roundtable discussions and 1 evening seminar 'AIR CARGO 201'. Plus, network with 450+ temperature controlled supply chain stakeholders from: • Pharmaceutical, Biotech and Medical Device Manufacturers • Freight Forwarders • Transportation Providers including Airlines, Truckers and Ocean Shippers • Packaging Partners • Government Healthcare Agencies and Shippers • Wholesalers • Pharmacies We'd like to thank the 2010 Cold Chain Executive Advisory Board who helped to bring new, innovative content to you: • Rafik H.

  3. 3. What's New for International Distribution and Shipping to New Markets - Conference Day Three Companies are making strategic decisions to use lower cost centers for manufacturing, clinical trials and new distribution markets. These new markets post great challenges for the logistics professional having to navigate less traveled lanes, interpret obscure regulations and collaborate with new logistics partners. Learn how pharma companies, logistic partners and non-profit agencies are effectively delivering cold chain medicines to new markets by: • Distributing through mountains and jungles with limited airport facilities and cold chambers in local towns • Training immunization organizations and staff on cold chain • Finding local reliable cold chain partners and developing a trusted network of cold chain partners • Aligning approaches between shipper, freight forwarder and 3PLs • Using robust packaging solutions suitable for remote destinations • Overcoming weather conditions such as “El Nino” Plus, don't miss the FDA Keynote Presentation on Importation Safety for a Global Supply Chain! Healthcare Cold Chain Distribution Track Great lengths and investments have been made to ensure your high-value medicines are temperature controlled. But how much visibility and control do you have over the last legs of your cold chain? Join pharmacists, wholesalers and shippers to discuss how to ensure medicines reach patients safely and efficaciously by: • Improving metrics and processes for evaluating product excursions for health care professionals and patients • Developing industry guidance Technical Report 46 to work toward greater education of healthcare professionals • Developing Quality Agreements with wholesale partners Currently, a mass population survey for pharmacists is being devised to gain detailed insight to how cold chain products are being handled. Stay tuned to www.coldchainpharma.com for the posting of survey results! Defining Industry Cold Chain Best Practice • The New ISPE Cold Chain Good Practice Guide • The New ISTA 7E Temperature Profiles and Manual 20 • Additions to existing PDA TR #39 and the USP <1079> Are you trying to make the best use of the several industry best practice documents? Join industry colleagues to decipher new guidelines and compare them to existing guidelines to understand synergies and what document is used for certain applications and issues. 3
  4. 4. What's New for ...continued Temperature Mapping and Profiling for Cold, CRT and Ambient Products Today, with several product temperature ranges, companies are designing transportation and thermal mapping studies to collect sufficient stability data for product categories. Solid temperature profiles are determined for these product categories to ensure streamlined packaging and lane qualification. Join discussions on best practice temperature profiling, reviewing company case studies and the new ISTA temperature profiles. Find out how other organizations are working with packaging and transportation partners to find cost-effective solutions for Ambient and CRT products. Hear from: • Bristol Myers Squib • Johnson & Johnson • Savient Pharmaceuticals • Merck • Thermosafe • ISTA • Eli Lilly • EnviroCooler • TempTrip Transportation & Security Plenary With pharmaceutical cargo theft and tampering on a rampant increase, high-value cold chain products are a target and require greater security measures! Don't miss presentations about: • TSA Certified Cargo Screening Program: Post August 2010 Deadline • Building security capabilities into your temperature controlled supply chain • Establishing security processes that ensure cold chain products are delivered safely to patients • Contingency planning for air travel and international cold chain distribution • Bridging the gap with air transport: Meeting industry critical standards and devising effective contingency plans Evening Networking Seminar: AIR CARGO 201 As a follow up session to last year's 'Interview with an Airline' Panel Discussion, this Evening Seminar is planned to take a deeper examination of how carriers, ground handlers and shippers all have a role in ensuring cold chain effectiveness of air freight. Questions and Discussion Points: • How can the industry standardize training and auditing of airport facilities? • How are carriers ensuring agents and ground handlers are adhering to Chapter 17 guidelines? • How can airport infrastructure obstacles be overcome?
