Ahead of Pharma IQ's annual Temperature Control and Logistics forum, we hone in on the best practices for achieving a successful emergency supply chain management strategy, which will ensure greater cross-value collaboration and enhanced resilience across the supply chain.
Download Pharma IQ’s short guide to receive four key takeaways to support supply chain frameworks in a state of emergency – from disease outbreaks, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, to natural disasters.
The key takeaways include, how to:
- Accelerate the adoption of digital models and capabilities for immediate and long-term visibility of the supply chain.
- Enforce strong supplier relationships from the very beginning and diversify your supply base.
- Build a comprehensive system for effective waste management.
- Understand how a crisis can impact your business.
The necessity of a resilient supply chain
When it comes to emergency supply chain management, vigilance goes a long way to ensuring the supply chain is resilient. The sudden occurrence of a crisis, unpredictable demand and tight deadlines can all stretch the pharma supply chain, which can prompt customer uncertainty and, in some cases, further human suffering.
Investing time and resources upfront to reach a minimum level of preparedness can significantly improve the infrastructure of the supply chain when demand surges while simultaneously achieving greater coordination across functions, from suppliers and manufactures, to regulators and research and development. For example, when an ice storm shut down local supply chains in Louisville, Kentucky, in 2009, the interchangeability of job functions, the high level of network understanding and the cultivation of relationships with suppliers prior to the crisis event ensured workers were able to rethink their working practices – and fast.
A report by the US Department of Homeland Security on supply chain resilience highlighted: “If emergency managers can develop an understanding of the fundamental network behaviors, they can help avoid unintentionally suppressing supply chain resilience, with the ultimate goal of ensuring emergency managers “do no harm” to surviving capacity.”
For greater cross-value collaboration and enhanced resilience across the supply chain, this short guide will aim to provide industry professionals with best practices for developing an effective management strategy to support supply chain frameworks in a state of emergency – from disease outbreaks, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, to natural disasters.
