September 18, 2017: Pharma.Aero welcomes an additional three companies into the organisation to foster strong collaboration amongst all the key stakeholders involved in the pharmaceutical supply chain.
The two joining air cargo stakeholders are Expeditors and Envirotainer. Additionally, the organisation welcomes 7th airport member, Montevideo Free Airport. This brings the total number of companies in Pharma.Aero to eighteen members.
Nathan De Valck, chairman of Pharma.Aero, said, “The Pharma.Aero membership base is expanding to include all stakeholders in the pharmaceutical supply chain. Our cross-industry collaboration now involves pharmaceutical manufacturers, airports, airlines, logistics service providers and solution providers. This large scope allows us to tackle a broad range of improvement projects in the Pharma.Aero working groups. Together with these air cargo stakeholders, we will develop global pharmaceutical trade lanes, implement best practices and share market knowledge and expertise.”
Pharma.Aero welcomes other IATA CEIV airport communities, shippers, airline carriers, logistics companies and other pharmaceutical stakeholders with like-minded goals to become members.
Peter Van Domburg, district manager Belgium & Luxembourg, explains, “Close partnerships, consistent global execution, targeted communications, and deep industry expertise allow Expeditors’ logistics specialists to successfully navigate through the complexities of the healthcare industry. Pharma.Aero personifies the answers to these needs and why Expeditors believes in the success of this kind of collaboration which helps preserve the integrity of Healthcare products for the patients at the end of the supply chain.”
“MVD Free Airport is confident that joining Pharma.Aero will provide a solid platform for a better understanding of key tendencies and issues present throughout the pharmaceutical supply chain. It hopes to provide the network with strategic insights on the challenges faced throughout emerging markets and the best practices and lessons learnt that will enable the industry itself to raise the bar in terms of quality distribution standards,” says Bruno Guella, managing director at MVD Free Airport.
Anna Levander, CSO at Envirotainer, explains, ”At Envirotainer we feel very strongly that bringing the industry together to collectively further best practices based on real experience is the way forward to secure the integrity of Pharmaceutical products.”
