Air Canada Cargo has become a member of the Pharma.Aero cross-industry collaboration platform to further develop its pharmaceutical shipments handling knowledge.

Founded in 2016, the Pharma.Aero platform includes over 50 Life Science and MedTech manufacturers, cargo pharma-certified communities and other logistics stakeholders.

“As we continue to expand our freighter fleet and with the continued enhancements to our cold chain handling capabilities, this participation in a new avenue for critical insight into pharmaceutical shipments is an important step forward,” said Matthieu Casey, managing director – commercial at Air Canada Cargo.

“Pharma.Aero will increase our ability to collaborate with an ever-growing list of industry experts to share ideas and gather knowledge on ways to further strengthen our expertise in shipping this vital cargo.”

Trevor Caswell, chairman of Pharma.Aero board of directors, said: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Air Canada Cargo to our Pharma.Aero global community. As a Canadian, and as a Chairman of Pharma.Aero, I am proud to see Canada enlarging its footprint in our organisation, as it is one of the leading countries in Life Science manufacturing.

“It is our vision and mission, as a cross-industry organization, to have a strong presence on all continents, especially in North America, to get different perspectives of our industry and to offer worldwide visibility to our new members and partners.”

In addition to its cold chain facility, Air Canada Cargo also utilises live-monitored, temperature-controlled certified aircraft containers, like the Envirotainer Releye RLP and larger RAP, as part of the AC Absolute solution.
