Oct 14, 2016: TEAM-UP is a new pharma-logistics initiative launched that looks at helping supply chain participants collaborate to improve transport services of pharmaceuticals.

This community launched at the IATA AirPharma Conference in Brussels on October 12, 2016, is a result of the urgent need for greater integration of the pharma-logistics supply chain.

Alan Kennedy, founder, TEAM-UP, said, "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."

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.

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.

It represents the interests of ALL pharma-logistics stakeholders.
