    //TLP INSIGHT FOREWORDWe are feeling really upbeat here at TLP Insight! Its May 2015 and we are into our third year of publication. TLP Insight grew out of

    our online presence, The Logistics Portal, a Pharmaceutical Logistics B2B directory, which provides an informed and comprehensive

    information hub for the Life Science Logistics industry. Started in the dark days of the recession, The Logistics Portal is a shining light of

    success, and we are pleased and proud to say the same about TLP Insight.

    We put our success down to hard work, a dedicated, highly skilled team of professionals and sound knowledge of the industry and

    industry needs, our loyal advertisers and our excellent contributors willing to share cutting-edge product and process knowledge. Oh,

    and determination, determination, determination!

    We set out our TLP Insight stall at the beginning of 2013 to publish a book that was unique, in that it was the only book in the industry, the

    first one, to complete the whole market from technology and software to bulk shipment and air cargo. And unlike any other publication,

    it would not be split into sections; rather our approach would be to present content in a more integrated, holistic format. This we believe

    has been a key ingredient of our success, in that it allows our readers to gain a better overview of what is happening in the industry, a

    wider knowledge of the ideas that are circulating and the products that are available and so helps them in their decision-making, both on

    a strategic and daily level.

    TLP Insight Spring/Summer again sees solutions being given to a range of different challenges. Rachel Griffiths, currently Associate

    Director of Operations, gives us the benefit of her wide range of experience with Biotec Services International. Rachel explains how we

    can achieve the balancing act between the need to establish warehousing systems which are flexible and affordable, but which at the

    same time comply with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations.

    When it comes to finding environmentally sustainable solutions to the challenges of transporting temperature sensitive goods in urban

    areas, Thermo King are true pioneers. Anthony Bour writes about how his company has innovated and developed systems in response to
