We continue the compelling conversation of part one of our two-part series "From Clinical Trials to Commercialization: The Pharma/Healthcare Global Supply Chain." As in that episode, we’re joined again by a guest podcaster from our parent company, Kuehne+Nagel: Robert Coyle, Senior Vice President of Pharma & Healthcare Strategy, along with QuickSTAT’s Scott Ohanesian, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations. Today’s discussion focuses on “Communications, Expectations & Hidden Heroes”—and how all three impact the intricacies of the pharma/healthcare supply chain. Rob and Scott cover:

  • Their experience engaging with global pharmaceutical companies during the development of the COVID vaccine—from clinical trials to shots into arms.
