Cold Chain Logistics Cold Chain IQ's Leaders in 2012 Part 11Add bookmark
Cold Chain IQ is in the fortunate position to work with a great number of knowledge leaders and well known figures within the cold chain logistics industry. While compiling our whitepapers, articles and webinars, and by attending our global portfolio of events we get to see plenty of good business people, but there are some who we believe make it to that next level – they are true leaders in their field. Each part of this series identifies one such leader and explains what we think sets them apart from the rest.
Alan J. Davis Supply Chain Temperature Control Leader, Johnson & Johnson Al Davis has gone above and beyond establishing supply chain networks supporting new product launches of numerous temperature controlled products. Davis began his Johnson & Johnson career at Ortho Pharmaceutical in 1968 in Distribution Services. During the formation of Johnson & Johnson Global Transportation Organization (GTO) in 2000, Davis lead inbound transportation programs supporting Johnson & Johnson Strategic Sourcing, Johnson & Johnson Relocation Services, Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research and Development, Noramco, and Vistakon.
In 2003 he began leading Cordis global inbound transportation and implemented improvements resulting in several million dollars annual savings while continuing to support Johnson & Johnson Strategic Sourcing, and Johnson & Johnson Relocation Services.
In March 2008, Davis was appointed to a new position created in GTO. In his new role of Supply Chain Temperature Control Leader, he is responsible for development of temperature control strategy throughout the global supply chain. He also has a number of leadership roles in industry groups as well as the lead for Johnson & Johnson Cold Chain Global Meetings.
