End Time: 12:30
Format: Interactive Panel Discussion


International clinical trials provide access to larger pools of potential participants for studies and to ensure medicines can be approved in multiple regions. Managing globalised trials also leaves you facing increased logistical challenges. Many regulations in emerging markets are not clear cut and have also been fluctuating in recent years.

In most markets, the timelines for submitting and receiving approval to conduct a trial can vary widely. Import and export regulations for transporting clinical products and equipment are also inconsistent, making it more difficult to plan and coordinate your clinical product supply chain.

Given these and a multitude of other challenges Logisticians need to expect the unexpected and think about all the obstacles that could delay your study timeline. These may even include cultural differences and language barriers, diverse transportation and delivery times, the need for emergency technical support, as well as erratic environmental conditions in each country.
