Recently, a team of members from BDP International in Italy hosted a special educational event called “Flash Forward”, held at the Linate Scalo Merci warehouse. During this one-day conference, BDP provided customers with a unique, behind the scenes tour of a temperature controlled air shipment destined from Italy to the United States. Presently, the United States represents the largest market in the world for pharmaceutical goods and a vertical where BDP is proud to serve some of the biggest names in the industry.
The inception of the event came from an idea early in 2017: while BDP has over 50 years of expertise in the chemical industry, we also wanted to let customers know that because of this experience, we also have the skill set and solutions offerings to handle pharmaceutical goods. The event was successful because the team was able to involve all parties and stakeholders involved with the shipping process; from the shipper to the consignee, and of course, BDP.
“As the point of contact with our customers day-in and day-out, our team is well-versed in their needs and questions that arise. As such, we wanted to try something a little different, and be sure that we provided a one of a kind experience that gave full insight and knowledge into the process as a whole”, said Simona Ravera, Director of Sales EMEA.
