Airports look to raise transport standards as pharma air cargo volumes grow
With a dire market for general air cargo, pharmaceuticals continue to prop up the sector, according to the latest figures from WorldACD.
And companies are doing their utmost to impress pharma shippers with their high standards.
Pharma shipments rose 12.3%, year-on-year, in April, with Middle East traffic seeing most growth at 16.6%, against 7.3% in Europe.
Companies that have joined the IATA CEIV programme have reported growing pharma volumes – and this morning DHL Global Forwarding announced that 30 of its DHL Air Thermonet GDP Compliant stations worldwide are in the process of becoming CEIV certified, with assessments starting in the third quarter.
