New at ACHEMA 2018: focus on chemical and pharma logistics

ACHEMA is the world forum for the process industries, but also an integral part of the trade show calendar of companies specializing in pharma packaging. Every three years 3,800 exhibitors and 170,000 visitors gather in Frankfurt/Main, Germany for the trade show that features everything you need to furnish a chemical or pharma production plant.

Due to the high demand there will be an additional 4.000 m˛ hall for the exhibition group pharmaceutical, packaging and storing techniques in 2018. This hall will also be the home of the Logistics Hotspot, the epicenter of the focal topic Chemical and Pharma Logistics. This special exhibition zone is dedicated to logistics companies specializing in chemical and pharma logistics and covers the whole supply chain from

  • warehousing
  • intralogistics
  • tracking and tracing
  • temperature controlled transport to
  • intermodal transport

The focal topic chemical and pharma logistics comes into play where the logistics become special because chemicals and pharmaceuticals are special products. It starts with temperature sensitive goods and doesn’t stop at hazardous materials.

Intralogistics within a factory are the responsibility of the company, but inbound and outbound transport is increasingly delegated to service providers. These are more and more becoming system partners as digitization leads to changes in supply change management and distribution, too. Many links of this value chain are not yet present at ACHEMA, although they are a logical continuation of packaging topics, a classic at ACHEMA. The Logistics Hotspot opens up this new topic; embedded in the exhibition there is a presentation stage where talks about the latest developments in logistics will be held throughout the week.

These novel materials for drug container closure systems can provide a needed alternative to traditional glass containment systems for advanced therapeutics.
