The New Rule Book for Air Cargo

 

The global air cargo industry has been buzzing about the new cargo-screening requirements which take effect in August 2010 for cargo originating in the US. Now, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is indicating that additional scrutiny will be required for shipments coming into the US as well.

This will be no easy task. In Europe alone, the pharmaceutical market represents a US$170 billion industry. One third of the top 15 global pharmaceutical sales leaders – GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Sanofi- Aventis, AstraZeneca and Hoffman- LaRoche – are headquartered in Europe and represent 32 per cent of the global pharmaceuticals sales market, or US$311.8 billion.

To ensure there is no disruption in the cold chain, carriers and forwarders are working The New Rule Book for Air Cargo Joe Reedy at American Airlines Cargo outlines what carriers need to know about new regulations for pharmaceutical cargo hand-in-hand to develop solutions for these global leaders and the industry as a whole.

AN EXCEPTION TO THE RULE

Before we examine solutions, let’s take a look at what has happened in the pharmaceutical industry up until now. As mentioned, pharmaceutical companies in the US and Europe, as well as around the world, recently felt the effect of the new TSA requirements. So far, two key dates have come and gone. The first was 1st February 2009. As of this date, 50 per cent of all cargo originating in the US needed to be screened at the piece level, which proved to be a manageable task for the industry. The second was 1st September 2009, which required the pharmaceutical and other industries shipping sensitive cargo to comply with the 50 per cent screening requirement.
