Intricacies of Shipping High Value, ultra-sensitive Pharmaceutical Processing Equipment: Avoiding pitfalls in the final presentation

03/22/2017, 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM

Meeting Room 3


There is a need for quality material devoted to standardized procedures to minimize in-transit damage and litigation for high-value processing equipment. It is our experience that many of the in-transit freight tragedies would be avoided through communication and a better understanding of the governing law. Consignees and end-users are simply not prepared or trained to properly document damaged freight. The necessary proof of negligence required to expedite and execute on the claims process is compromised. Freight damage and claims are costly both financially and in terms of sacrificing the relationships between supplier and customer. Pertinent legal issues blended with the "art" of transporting high-value freight result in a standardized procedural plan that will minimize freight claims, maintain strong relationships between suppliers, end-users and logistics firms and result in less down time in the supply chain and drug manufacturing process.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learning Objectives 1. Specialized Pharma Transportation & Logistics Options Exist - Many don't realize that there are specialized logistics carriers who are experienced in the vetting process of transportation companies that are involved in the pharma supply chain. These subtle differences result in drugs to the market much quicker, without avoidable pitfalls and delays. 2. Coverage of Catastrophic Loss - Shippers of custom pharma process equipment must take preventative action to insure that coverage exists in the case of a catastrophic loss. Sophisticated carriers will always attempt to limit their liability to the coverage limits communicated to them in combination with released rates where applicable. A shipper can best protect itself by working with reputable logistics firms who understand the shipper's coverage needs and asks the right- though often tough - questions, all while making sure the carrier hired to make the final presentation of the high value cargo is qualified and capable of covering losses in any required amount. The frightening fact is that many are not. 3. Communication & Planning are Instrumental - Take home key tips on a communication system designed to eliminate breakdowns of key communication responsibilities from factory to floor. It's been said that the most important aspect of communication is hearing what isn't said. Without a communication plan, you're planning to fail - costing a significant amount of money and time lost in the supply chain.
