Brussels Airport and Montevideo’s MVD Free Airport have signed a memorandum of understanding to continue sharing know-how and best practices to develop new pharma certified lanes between Europe and Latin America.

A joint statement from Uruguay’s MVD Free Airport and Brussels Airport Company said that they both “see eye-to-eye with regards to the challenges that global pharma distribution is facing”.

They have worked on several initiatives including the launching of a GDP compliant route between Brussels and Montevideo to facilitate regional distribution to Brazil, Argentina and the rest of South America via Uruguay.

“We’ve felt identified with what Brussels Airport Company has been doing for quite some time” Saidd Bruno Guella, managing director at MVD Free Airport, adding: “The way they’ve positioned themselves as a pharma gateway with state-of-the-art infrastructure, pharma-oriented processes and internal quality standards up to par with the most demanding has definitely helped shape our mission and vision.

“We are happy to be in continuous collaboration with Brussels Airport Company and very excited for what is to come.”

Nathan De Valck, cargo development manager at Brussels Airport Company, said: “It is great to see companies such as MVD Free Airport who operate in very challenging regional contexts strive for greatness and help pave the way for a safer, reliable and standardized pharma distribution.

“When we first started exchanging ideas and information we were very pleasantly surprised to learn we were speaking the same language and that a lot could be accomplished together and also being part of Pharma.Aero as well.

“Today, we are very satisfied with the road we’ve travelled and looking forward to all that is yet to come” mentioned. 

MVD Free Airport is a business unit of Corporación America, the largest airport operator in the world with a network of over 50 airports and cargo terminals across three continents. It is a multimodal distribution centre specialised in temperature-controlled supply chain, operating as the first and only free airport in South America.
