The organisation said it has received interest from different stakeholders in the pharma air cargo supply chain to join, especially since the start of the pandemic, as the air cargo industry has played a critical role in transporting life-saving medical products and vaccines.
'In the past months, we expanded our global network and raised awareness of the need for global collaboration within the industry,' said Pharma.Aero chairman Nathan De Valck.
'The onboarding of Qatar Airways Cargo - one of the world's leading cargo carriers - underlines our worldwide impact as a neutral collaboration platform for the global air cargo industry and pharma and life science sector,' he said,
Said Qatar Airways cargo chief Guillaume Halleux: 'Full membership with Pharma.Aero will allow us to share and receive market knowledge and also collaborate with different air cargo stakeholders in the supply chain which will ultimately lead to continuous improvement of life science, medtech and the pharma air cargo supply chain.
'We look forward to collaborating with Pharma.Aero members and excel in offering a reliable end-to-end air transport in a seamless cool chain,' Mr Halleux said.
