Focusing on ‘Scheduled Drug – Processes and Complications in Global Logistics’, PCI’s Rich Nelson, Senior Manager, Global Logistics for Clinical Services, will present on Tuesday, May 14 at 9am PDT. Rich will share PCI’s significant experience, providing an overview of the differences and potential difficulties involved with the global movement of scheduled drugs. He will also discuss the impact of those processes on timelines and logistics plans for clinical trials.

In his role with PCI, Rich works with clients to provide seamless global distribution for their investigational drug products, ensuring cost-effective and time-efficient delivery throughout the clinical trials process.

PCI has a long-standing track record of supporting clients across the world in this challenging area, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to share some of our insight and experience at the CTS West Coast event,” said Rich.
