Global Trends and Their Implications on Healthcare Logistics
Date: August 26, 2014
Time: 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET
Duration: 60 minutes including Live Q&A


Among the many global trends impacting healthcare product manufacturers, three in particular are profoundly affecting healthcare supply chains: changing global demographics, urbanization, and increased regulatory complexity. Given such changes, traditional linear supply chains are simply no longer adequate. To keep pace with these trends, enter new global markets, and support new temperature-sensitive products like biologics, healthcare companies may want to re-evaluate how and with whom they work.

Unlocking Value through Outsourcing
Date: March 25, 2014
Time: 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET
Duration: 60 minutes including Live Q&A

Ask any healthcare logistics professionals about their supply chain concerns and they’re likely to cite—among others—regulatory compliance, product protection and supply chain expenditure. Many of them are looking for solutions that can unload the heavy burden of logistics and distribution and also contain costs. Yet relatively few healthcare manufacturers have discovered the value of outsourcing their distribution operation.

In this webinar, UPS’s Charles Trammell and Brad Sand reveal how outsourcing these commitments to third party logistics provider can not only free up resources but also add value to the healthcare manufacturer’s bottom line.
