CSC unveils TURANT app for end-to-end visibility of pharma shipments
India’s Cargo Service Centre (CSC) has launched the TURANT app, which provides real-time information of pharmaceutical shipments that depart from Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) to its final destination, thus offering end-to-end visibility. The app was unveiled during a virtual press meet organised by Cargo Service Centre.
End-to-end supply chain visibility has always been a concern for pharma shippers and the COVID-19 crisis magnified this need. Addressing this key concern, the TURANT app, which also means ‘immediate’ in Hindi, will provide customers all critical real-time information including temperature of the shipment during transit, all accessible on a mobile phone screen.
“This is the first time in history of that a cargo terminal is providing its customers with real time temperature tracking and status of a shipment. CSC is the first in the world to provide you with this level of transparency. And this is just the beginning; going forward, you can expect a lot more innovation from our team,” said Tushar Jani, chairman, CSC on the launch of the app.
Applauding CSC for its initiative, Manoj Singh, senior vice president and head – cargo, MIAL said that pharma contributes 37 percent to MIAL’s cargo business and CSC has played a key role in the processing of cargo. He further informed that MIAL has witnessed 22 percent growth in pharma imports, and till date, 32 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been transported to across 20 countries and 30 destinations domestically.
