Korean Air signs up with SkyCell

By Damian Brett

Korean Air has signed up to use SkyCell’s temperature-controlled containers.

The partnership follows SkyCell’s recent launch of a service centre in Seoul and the appointment of Charlie Cho as business development director for Korea. 

SkyCell said the partnership comes at a crucial point with the increase in demand for Covid-19 vaccines and treatments this year.

It also pointed out that the Korean pharmaceutical industry has seen rapid growth over the last five years, growing at an annual rate of around 7%.

It added that exports of Korean pharmaceuticals marked an all-time high of $7.4bn last year, an increase of 74.4% from 2019.
