GPLS is not only bringing together the industry’s finest experts as speakers but also in our very first panel discussion we will witness them sharing the learnings and best practices of the last 20 months of how the sector rode through the deadly pandemic, with a clear focus and an intention to help make the pharma supply chain more resilient for the future.

Ravikumar Tummalapalli, head logistics - APAC, Japan, China – Teva Pharmaceuticals, said, “GPLS has really matured over the years with top-notch speakers, participants and the quality of discussions. Every year the event brings such compelling industry issues to the forefront and tries to find solutions through in-depth analysis and by sharing case studies to benefit everyone in the community.”

GPLS 2021 organisers envision that we as an industry bring back the safety and comfort of meeting physically in safe environs and brainstorming on how best we can ‘future-proof’ and manage the current supply chain bottlenecks.

This specifically curated event will have stakeholders from across the spectrum of the pharma supply chain including manufacturers, retail distributors, logistics companies, freight forwarders, airlines, airports, ground handlers, industry associations and market consultants.

In the second panel, GPLS hopes to initiate and spark a discussion meant to attract more investments into the cold chain capabilities that enable it to safely deliver temperature-controlled drugs and therapies.

The third and fourth panel discussions at the event will look into the technology that supports packaging and the digitalisation of the pharma supply chain. We seek to end the day with a deliberation on current freight capacity challenges and the current rate surge that we are witnessing globally.

We would request our readers to follow our social media handles to stay updated about the esteemed panel of speakers we are onboarding and who may bring myriad opportunities for your business.
