Pharma.Aero organisation doubles membership

Air cargo pharma group Pharma.Aero has doubled its membership, adding new shippers and forwarders.
The organisation, which was started by Brussels and Miami airports six months ago, has added eight new members: shippers Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson, Merck Sharp & Dohme and DHL Temperature Management Solutions, Expeditors, EuroAirport Basel, 4Advice and e-CARGOWARE.
The new additions bring Pharma.Aero’s total membership to 16.
Nathan De Valck, chairman of Pharma.Aero, said: “The recent addition of the three global pharmaceuticals shippers marks a significant milestone to the organisation as we will be able to collaborate closely with the pharmaceutical shippers on projects to achieve a reliable end-to-end air transport for pharmaceutical cargo.
“Together with the air cargo stakeholders, we will develop global pharmaceutical trade lanes, implement best practices and share market knowledge and expertise.
“Pharma.Aero welcomes other IATA CEIV airport communities, shippers, airline carriers, logistics companies, and other pharmaceutical stakeholders with like-minded goals to become members.”
Earlier this year, Mumbai airport joined the initiative.
