We are trying something a little bit different where we are sponsoring six industry experts to come together to discuss market trends in the passive and active market.

The panel will consist of:

  • Roger Chew: Global Sales Director, SFS Pharma Logistics
  • Brendan Beech: Director – Global Network and Business Development, Maltacourt Global Logistics
  • Mike Meakin: Vice President, Global Quality Regulatory & Compliance, DHL Supply Chain
  • Maik Slijpen: Director, Value Stream Management, The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson
  • Michał Grochowski: Cargo Director at LOT Polish Airlines
  • Henry Moran: Host & Director, ASC Associates Ltd

Questions being asked of the panel are:

  • What affects your choice when choosing between active and passive containers?
  • What is your experience of using different types of container and what variety of results have you obtained?
  • Do you see current trends in the market relating to risk, compliance and liability affecting the choice of container?
  • With the increasing need to deliver vaccines in remote areas of the developing world, how do you think that this will affect the passive v active choice?

This will be followed by a 30-minute live Q&A involving all attendees allowing you to ask questions directly to the panel, time permitting. It should be a lively and highly-informative discussion.


The session will be recorded and any registered attendees who cannot attend will be sent a link to the session.
We look forward seeing you there.
Kind regards #Team Tower
