Miami boosted by pharma traffic

Growth in pharma demand helped create a spike in the value of cargo transported through Miami International Airport last year.
The Florida airport saw the total value of the cargo that it handled in 2016 increase by eight percent year on year to $57.3bn, with the value of pharma freight surging by 48% to $4.4bn.
The airport pointed out that in 2015 it achieved IATA’s CEIV certification and last year it teamed up with Brussels airport to create Pharma.Aero, a collaborative group of a cross section of pharma supply chain players that share best practice to improve standards.
Since its launch, the organisation has added Singapore Changi Airport, Sharjah (UAE) International Airport, Chhatrapati Shivaji (Mumbai) International Airport, Brussels Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Brinks Life Sciences, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. as strategic members.
