The website provides the business case for more integrated supply chain working and sets out the TEAM-UP proposition from both a logistics-supplier and a pharma-shipper perspective.
TEAM-UP has been established as a not-for-profit initiative with the aim of meeting the supply chain challenges posed by today’s rapidly changing market conditions. It operates as a single-focus ‘best practice’ group specifically promoting strategic partnering between all members of the pharma-logistics process.
Its emphasis is on collaboration and integration as it seeks to drive the practice of genuine co-operative teamwork throughout the pharma-logistics sector and in doing so enabling a collective response to the challenges being faced today.
“The TEAM-UP program has adopted some of the best-collaborative practices from other business sectors and adapted these for the pharmaceutical logistics supply chain” explained executive director Alan Kennedy. “Substantial efficiency improvements, a more equitable and less contentious operating environment and a real competitive advantage are just some of the benefits for TEAM-UP Participants”
Updates to the website will continue over the next months as the TEAM-UP program expands. “This is just the first phase of the website,” said Kennedy. “We are now working on the Member’s Only Section which will provide TEAM-UP Participating companies with exclusive access to a wide range of TEAM-UP resources and other services.”
