PMPS and FlyPharma Webinar: What We Learned

Mike Alkire at Premier Inc

The January 19th webinar, Challenges and Opportunities for Pharma Manufacturing and Logistics in the Face of COVID-19, sparked a meaningful discussion about the obstacles that pharmaceutical suppliers experienced in 2020 amidst the pandemic.

During the webinar, panellists discussed vaccine distribution and challenges in meeting the demand. The panellists noted that 2020 was an extremely difficult year for everyone – especially for manufacturers. They noted that their key focus in 2020 was to manage supplier risk and manufacture medications to reach patients in a timely manner. They also focused on managing risk within their manufacturing operations, making sure they could continue to meet their quality and safety standards.

As we know, suppliers unexpectedly experienced a huge demand in supplies in a very short amount of time. The onset of the pandemic was a challenging situation for any company – no one was really prepared for it – so it was very complex to quickly move products from different sources.

Mario Patyk at Leipzig/Halle Airport

Although Mario was born in Leipzig, it did take him a while to realise that the city actually had a cargo airport. Certainly, at the beginning of his career at Frankfurt Airport many moons ago, no one expected Leipzig/ Halle Airport, where he is now Head of Business Development, to play any significant role in air freight.

So, one can imagine the surprised look on Mario’s face, when the largest cargo carrier in Europe – DHL – announced their move to Leipzig/ Halle Airport in 2004.
