Air cargo companies vie for pharma business with certified trade lanes
With competition for temperature-controlled pharmaceutical air cargo intensifying, initiatives to entice shippers with certified door-to-door trade lanes are gaining momentum. But not every company is a fan of IATA’s CEIV programme.
Two initiatives were announced last week. In the first, Swiss WorldCargo, Cargologic and Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS) established a “secure temperature-controlled, quality corridor” between Singapore and Zurich.
The three parties said they had synchronised cargo handling facilities and procedures to deliver accurate and reliable handling on the ground and in the air. Carologic and SATS are both certified to IATA CEIV and GDP standards.
