Meet World Courier & Industry Experts @ Vienna BioCenter 


Date: Friday 5th April 2019

Venue: Vienna BioCenter, 1030 Wien, Austria


Developing a drug from pre-clinical research to a market authorized product is a challenging process for every pharmaceutical company. Establishing a safe and secure supply chain as well as a distribution strategy is a crucial stage for a successful clinical trial but a challenge for small and medium-sized pharmaceutical companies. On top of these existing challenges, we want to put the focus on FDA Audits and US Customs Documents to provide you with hints and tips that you won’t find on Google.

Join us and meet World Courier and Industry Experts who will share their experiences and knowledge.
