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


A ‘vertical industry’ approach is critical to an air cargo carrier’s success. A dedicated team must be in place to acquire industry knowledge and expertise, as well as steer suitable solution offers. Two important aspects of this approach are creating a ‘pharma mindset’ throughout the organisation and establishing a closer cooperation with involved stakeholders, including shippers. Countries in which pharma is one of the key driving forces behind the economy tend to put a special focus on this sector – consider Switzerland, where pharmaceuticals contribute to as much as 30% of exported goods, putting local logistics providers in a prime position to offer pharmaspecific solutions.

Tightening Your Supply Chain Against Counterfeits

World Courier

As today’s global pharmaceutical supply chain grows increasingly longer and more complex, each link provides added opportunity for counterfeiters. While pending regulatory changes promise to tighten the supply chain with respect to production and distribution entities and new packaging technologies will make the identification of counterfeit products easier, the logistics of global distribution remains a weak link.
