Etihad Cargo teams up with Validaide

Etihad Cargo will list its pharma facilities and capabilities through validation platform Validaide.

The cargo division said the move would allow it to reach the more than 500 logistics providers that use the Validaide platform to search for pharma facility and service capabilities.

Customers will be able to define, share and search special cargo handling capabilities at 70 stations.

The airline will also join Validaide’s advisory board.

Martin Drew, managing director – cargo and logistics at Etihad Cargo, said: “In this constantly changing environment, the logistics industry needs to understand where capabilities lie and what constraints exist.

“Through Validaide, Etihad Cargo will provide their customers with additional transparency on their station capabilities, including new SOP and Lane Risk Assessment features, while reducing the time to collect and manage this information by 95%. The move is decisive considering the anticipated distribution of Covid-19 vaccines.”

Validaide chief executive Eelco de Jong added: “Transparency on transport and storage conditions is critical for distribution of Covid-19 vaccines and therapeutics, which require extensive industry collaboration and data sharing.”

In September, Etihad launched a revamped pharma product named PharmaLife.
