Pharma-logistics partnership initiative announced at IATA AirPharma 2016

October 14, 2016:The IATA AirPharma 2016 saw the birth of a pharma logistics initiative TEAM UP which is designed to inspire the mutual understanding, common procedures and universal climate of trust that are a prerequisite for the creation of sustainable, fully-integrated supply chains.

Modelled around proven supply chain models from other sectors, TEAM-UP has been conceived as a hands-on, interactive community with all corporate participants committed to following agreed collaborative principles, all committed to a programme of continuous collaborative improvement and all having access to a shared repository of collaborative tools, templates and advice. Speaking at the IATA AirPharma Conference in Brussels on 12th October 2016, TEAM-UP founder Alan Kennedy stressed the urgent need for greater integration of the pharma-logistics supply chain: "With the huge challenges it is facing, the pharmaceutical logistics sector faces a very uncertain future unless it is prepared to abandon its traditional silo thinking and practices in favour of a more collaborative approach. The advent of the TEAM-UP integration framework will help accelerate the changes needed and open the doors to faster, more equitable, more systematic supply chain integration. There is no longer any excuse for inertia." By creating the necessary environment, and providing the leadership needed, to make true win-win integration a practical reality, TEAM-UP will contribute to improved corporate efficiencies, better overall sector performance and, ultimately, to enhanced patient/user safety. TEAM-UP is a completely independent best-practice body. It is not financed by, nor does it represent the interests of any vested-interest or third-party group. It is being established as a legally-constituted not-for-profit organisation run by, and for, the sole benefit of its participants. This is its guarantee that it represents the interests of all pharma-logistics stakeholders.
