IATA CEIV certified ABC Airlines joins Pharma Gateway Amsterdam
Jun 07, 2017: Russia based all cargo airline AirBridgeCargo Airlines has joined Pharma Gateway Amsterdam (PGA), the second airline to join the fourteen-member quality pharma initiative.
The carrier operates 22 flights per week from Amsterdam to significant pharma destinations in Europe, Asia, and the United States, including Moscow, Chicago, Shanghai, and Singapore.
AirBridgeCargo Airlines is already IATA Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics (CEIV Pharma) certified, which is one of the requirements for all PGA members.
“The Cargo Community at Amsterdam is committed to supporting and developing an efficient and transparent pharma cool chain, that will continue to contribute to the high quality offered at Schiphol,” said Jonas van Stekelenburg, head of Cargo, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
“Since launching the initiative just over 12 months ago, the tangible results across the entire pharma supply chain at Schiphol have been very satisfying to see.”
PGA was formed in March 2016 to provide transparency and quality within the Pharma air cargo supply chain.
PGA members benefit from regular knowledge sharing sessions, organised by Schiphol Cargo to facilitate co-operations between the different players in the cool chain.
Schiphol Cargo also provides members with support in working toward their CEIV Certification.
“We see high potential for Schiphol to become one of our main airports for pharma flows and an initiative like PGA is considered to be of great value,” said Henk-Jan van Keulen, Country manager the Netherlands, AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
“Within PGA the Schiphol Cargo Community is mutually developing the required logistic chain in order to provide the shippers and consignees with the best possible product.
"Having Schiphol's Cargo department in the driver's seat we are also assured to have a neutral chairman.
“AirBridgeCargo Airlines will join PGA with full support from our Global Pharma Director Andrey Andreev as well as our Regional Pharma Manager Alexander Treber. Treber and I will also personally join the PGA carrier meetings at AMS."
PGA members also include Cyberfreight Pharma Logistics, Yusen Logistics Benelux, GEFCO Forwarding Netherlands, VCK Logistics Airfreight, SGS, Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, Swissport Cargo Services, dnata, Worldwide Flight Services (WFS), Nouwens Transport Breda, De Jong Special Services, Jan de Rijk Logistics, and DJ Middelkoop.
