Following the success of “Bolloré Logistics Healthcare Exchange Days” first held in Roissy Charles De Gaulle (CDG), Brice Bellin, Europe Healthcare Director, and Franck Philippe, France Healthcare Manager & Competence Center Manager, successfully hosted the first Asian edition of the event in Singapore with the support of Singapore Managing Director, Frederic Marcerou.

Held in Singapore's latest investment - Blue Hub, Bolloré Logistics next-generation building that combines both sustainable development and innovation, this specialized exchange gathered employees whom are deeply involved in the daily operations of the Healthcare vertical within the Asia region.

After the introductory presentations, Europe representatives shared information with the region in regards to the "Competency Centre" (CC) – a center dedicated to customer support strengthened by a network of specialists who excel in the Healthcare sector. Its goal is to analyze, anticipate and provide any service necessary to their logistics partners.

Witnessing a rapid growth of the Pharma Logistics – an increment of 19% from 2018, there is a growing interest in setting up similar centers within the Asia region. With that in mind, participants engaged in a discussion on the practices they could adopt that would prove beneficial in improving relationships with their current and potential customers.

The exchange concluded with a fruitful tour of Blue Hub where the overseas office staff of Bolloré Logistics experience first-hand, the unique features of this smart warehouse that is set to make a difference in the logistics landscape.
