Frankfurt to offer pharma community free guided tours

The Air Cargo Community Frankfurt has begun offering the pharmaceuticals industry half-day guided tours of the various areas in the Cargo Cities and on the apron of Frankfurt Airport.
The free tours include a brief introduction and visits to the Cargo Cool Competence Center and the Perishable Center Frankfurt.
Visitors will also get to see the processes of the freight handlers, several special products developed for the transport of pharmaceuticals and, if possible, the interior of a freight-only aircraft.
Air Cargo Community Frankfurt executive director Joachim von Winning said: “In international air transport, the transport chains involved can be very complex, particularly as at the airports numerous players like public authorities and ground handling service providers are involved.
“With the guided tours of the airport, we introduce the shipping companies from the pharmaceutical industry to these issues in various facets in detail and, at the same time, present highly efficient solutions in this area that exist at Frankfurt Airport.
“Because these make it possible that even highly sensitive consignments can be transported quickly, reliably and maintaining the necessary cold chain.”
Anyone wishing to participate on one of the tours should contact: pharma@FRA-fr8.com.
The Air Cargo News Life Sciences and Pharmaceuticals Conference 2015 will take place at the Lancaster London Hotel on December 14-15. For more details click here.
