INTRODUCTION

Close collaborative working between disparate stakeholders lies at the very heart of many pharmaceutical industry operations and, to varying degrees, is the norm for activities such as product licensing, product co-development and outsourced manufacturing where it is either commonsensical or unavoidable.

For some this will be an uncomfortable experience. For others, it will open the doors to huge opportunities.

But there is no choice. We have no alternative but to integrate. We must change in order to improve outcomes and reduce costs.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR SUPPLIERS?

TEAM-UP is all about win-win relationships. See what’s involved and how your company can be a TEAM-UP winner.

About TEAM-UP

The TEAM-UP mission is to:

Push both the spirit and practice of supply chain collaboration amongst all stakeholders in the pharma and bio-pharma logistics sectors and engender a culture of genuine trust and mutuality.

Provide leadership for a decisive reform of pharma-logistics and contribute to greater supply chain integration for better performance and improved patient safety.

Drive continuous and sustainable improvement in the collaborative performance of all TEAM-UP participants.

TEAM-UP has been established by a cross-section of sector visionaries 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.


With its emphasis on collaboration and integration it seeks to drive the practice of genuine co-operative teamwork throughout the pharma-logistics sector and in doing so enable a collective response to the challenges being faced today.  Substantial efficiency improvements, a more equitable and less contentious operating environment and a real competitive advantage for its exponents are just some of the benefits.


At the heart of the TEAM-UP philosophy are the beliefs that the entire value chain must have common goals, that pharma shippers must embrace the entire end-to-end value-chain, that a team-work approach can bring mutual benefits and that all network participants can share in the rewards of improved efficiency and reduced risk.
