AirBridgeCargo gets Envirotainer’s seal of approval for pharma operation

AirBridgeCargo’s (ABC) has achieved Envirotainer’s quality accreditation at its global hub at Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport and in Dallas as part of its push into pharma.
Envirotainer, which provides active cool containers, created its Qualified Envirotainer Provider Training and Quality Programme (QEP) to recognise transport service providers which demonstrate their ability to properly manage Envirotainer container shipments in accordance with Good Distribution Practices (GDP).
Fedor Novikov, director pharma, global at AirBridgeCargo, said: “Gaining QEP accreditation is yet another sign of the commitment we are making to our pharmaceutical customers and further demonstrates our ability to protect the quality and integrity of temperature-sensitive pharma products.
"We have been heavily involved in pharma transportation since 2016 and our focus over the last 18 months has been to invest in developing the products and services our customers need. QEP accreditation is one of the benchmarks we and our customers recognise as being very important as we grow pharma volumes across our network.”
In November 2016, AirBridgeCargo also became the first airline in Russia and only the seventh carrier in the world to receive IATA CEIV Pharma certification.
"In developing its pharma product, ABC has conducted lane assessments to understand each international station’s readiness to handle pharma shipments," the carrier said in a statement.
"This included strict audits of Ground Handling Agents and Ramp Agents as well as audits of trucking companies and other outsourced partners, including checks of their Quality Management Systems."
