Pharma.Aero and Neutral Air Partner have come together to work collaboratively towards improving the reliability, security and speed of life science and MedTech-related airfreight shipping.
Under their memorandum of understanding (MoU), the two partners will conduct joint research and studies, create and collaborate on industry projects, share knowledge and best practices, and review standards in the areas of life science products’ handling and transportation.
Founded in 2016 as a cross-industry collaboration platform, Pharma.Aero brings together life science and MedTech manufacturers, certified cargo players, airport operators and logistics specialists to collaborate through projects that focus on end-to-end supply chain visibility.
It has expanded rapidly in size to now include more than 50 life science and MedTech manufacturers, cargo pharma-certified communities and other logistics stakeholders.
Trevor Caswell, its chairman, declared: “As neutral platforms of knowledge-sharing and cross-industry collaboration, Pharma.Aero and Neutral Air Partner have a similar vision: achieving excellence in the rapidly changing supply chain.
“By joining our forces, we will create more leverage and added value for our projects that focus on genuine challenges and innovative aspects of life science and MedTech transportation.”
