Visitors experience Frankfurt’s pharma focus
29 / 02 / 2016
Air Cargo Community Frankfurt has held a pharma-focused event at Europe’s top airfreight hub for BVL International, the German Logistics Association in the Rhein-Main region.
There were 80 participants at the ‘visit FRA pharma’ event who received an update on current trends and developments in logistics, including the transport of pharmaceutical products. Speakers included Andreas Gmür from Camelot Management Consultants and Andreas Seitz, managing director of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions.
Dominik Misskampf, as head of the competence team pharma, presented how Frankfurt airport’s freight community is committed to the shipment of pharma products and what special products and services are available to consignors.
Joachim von Winning, executive director of the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt, said: "The pharmaceutical industry has the most demanding requirements for airfreight. Many shipments are of very high value and extremely temperature sensitive and they often have to get to their destination quickly.
"Frankfurt has an innovative world-class service offer that stands for speed, safety and reliability. This is what we want to make better known with ‘visit FRA pharma’".
During the second part of the visit, visitors experienced live operations at the Lufthansa Cargo Cool Center and the Perishable Center Frankfurt.
Added von Winning: "Frankfurt Airport is Europe’s number one in airfreight – naturally as well with pharmaceuticals with more than 100,000 tons annually. We, as a community, are instrumental in securing and expanding this position in Frankfurt long-term, especially in regard to pharmaceutical companies and shippers."
