Working Together

The life sciences sector is a global, multi-site industry, demanding quality, speed to market and consistency across the whole cold chain. Simultaneously, it is becoming more complex due to a rising need for customised transportation solutions and tighter regulatory framework, with compliance necessary at every point of the chain.

A concentrated effort from the air cargo industry is required to enhance the level of competency, as well as operational and technical preparedness. To respond to such an increased complexity, air cargo carriers have to adapt their business approach, improve their capabilities and, ultimately, differentiate their transportation solutions by strengthening collaboration and communication with all cold chain partners.

Vertical Industry Approach

Two important aspects of this approach are creating a ‘pharma mindset’ throughout the organisation and establishing a closer cooperation with involved stakeholders, including shippers.
