On June 8 2020, Pharma.Aero organized a second successful webinar: The Day After Covid-19: How Collaboration Can Prepare Us For The Impact. This was the second webinar in a series of three webinars that Pharma.Aero has planned, in collaboration with The STAT Trade Times, to address the current global pandemic. The global opinion leaders on the panel zoomed in on short to mid-term Covid-19 scenarios, as well as the importance of collaboration amongst all the stakeholders of the entire Life Science and MedTech supply chain. Similar to the previous edition, the virtual event was well-attended by pharma shippers, freight forwarders, integrators, airports, airlines, ground handlers, aircraft OEMs, solution providers and industry organisations like IATA, TIACA.
Come June 18 2020, the third and final webinar titled “The Future: Will Life Science and MedTech Air Cargo Supply Chain Be Completely Different?” will conclude the webinar series. The agenda of this final session discusses structural changes and impacts resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. Prof. Wouter Dewulf of the University of Antwerp and Academic Director of C-MAT will share his opinions on the impact and possible scenarios to be expected. He will be joined by other opinion leaders representing pharmaceutical companies including Marc Schmid of Novartis and Kathleen Buckley of Johnson&Johnson. The sharing by the opinion leaders would follow with a round table discussion led by Jaisey Yip of Changi Airport Group and Pharma.Aero’s Vice-Chairman, Alex Leung of Cathay Pacific and Paul Delbar of Nallian.
Following the conclusion of the webinar, an executive summary will be shared on the Pharma.Aero website, LinkedIn and via the STAT Times network. Please also check these channels for the executive summaries of the first two webinars.
