Last mile awareness is the new focus for Cool Chain Association with collaborative solutions debated at its pharma event


Last mile awareness, automation and data sharing will top the agenda at the 7th CCA Pharma and Biosciences Event in Paris in September 2019

Luxembourg, Wednesday 20th February 2019 – The Cool Chain Association (CCA) is placing the spotlight on collaborative solutions for a final fix in the pharma chain with a focus on innovation and data sharing at its 7th Pharma and Biosciences Conference in Paris, France, in September 2019.

Drones, automation, and digitisation will also top the agenda at the two-day conference, which brings together decision makers from across the global pharma supply chain.

“It takes 10,000 miles to reach the final one, and all too often that is when the cargo is compromised,” said Stavros Evangelakakis, Head of Global Healthcare, Cargolux and Chairman, Cool Chain Association.

“Without jeopardising what has been done prior to the shipment arriving at the final leg of its journey, we need to better investigate ways to collaborate and embrace innovative ideas to make sure we are working with our stakeholders to be part of the solution.

“This is important, not only to ensure we drive the high-quality cost-effective services they deserve, but also because we will be helping ensure that critical pharma supplies are successfully delivered to the end destination – to the patients who need it.”

CCA is aiming to team up with thought leaders from all parts of the supply chain, as well as stakeholders in charge of the last mile such as Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), and innovators with new solutions, including drones, to explore how they can work together to provide the infrastructure needed to ensure a successful end-to-end cool chain delivery.

“The conference will be part of an ongoing push to bring all stakeholders together and find new and better ways of working together,” said Edwin Kalischnig, Secretary General, CCA.

“Our vision is to contribute to making the world a better place by helping to improve the cool chain.”

CCA is a non-profit organisation that aims to improve the quality, efficiency, and value of the temperature sensitive supply chain, in order to help reduce and prevent loss in the chain.

The Association holds two events a year, with one focussed on pharma and one on perishables.

This year’s perishables event will discuss strategies for reducing food waste and will take place in Venlo, the Netherlands in May 2019.

Cool Chain” or “Temperature-Sensitive Supply Chain” refers to the subset of the total supply chain that involves the production, storage and distribution of products that require some level of temperature control in order to retain their key characteristics and associated value e.g. food, flowers, pharmaceutical & healthcare products.

It’s the CCA’s ambition to create Impact: visible and measurable results for both companies and our society. Focus and mass are critical success factors and the CCA has therefore chosen to identify relevant impact areas to maximize the social, environmental and economical effect of our initiatives, innovations and projects.
