KYIV. July 24 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The European Association for Logistics and Transportation in Healthcare intends to assist Ukraine in the development of licensing conditions for the implementation of business activity in medicine distribution for the effective implementation of European experience in the country’s legislation.
According to the press service of the State Administration of Ukraine on Medicinal Products, its representatives agreed to cooperate with the European Association for Logistics and Transportation in Healthcare.
Association Chairman Jean-Francois Fusco presented the possible options for medicine distribution in the European Union. In particular, participants in the meeting discovered who is responsible for the quality and safety of pharmaceutical products at every stage of logistics operations, how customs warehouses which store medicine are equipped according to European standards and regulations, the specifics of cooperation between producers, distributors and logisticians, as well as the range of services that can be rendered by distribution and logistics companies.
In addition, Fusco emphasized the need to optimize the supply chain, as the shorter the distance pharmaceutical products pass from the producer to the consumer, the greater the guarantee of their quality being preserved during transportation.
