Cool Chain Association and Pharma.Aero sign MoU

Pharma.Aero has entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Cool Chain Association (CCA) to harmonise pharmaceutical and perishable cold chain processes. The MoU outlines the associations’ shared commitment to foster collaboration and enhance transparency between the life science and perishable supply chain.

"Our partnership with Pharma.Aero is born out of a shared goal to improve the quality and safety of the cool supply chain," said Stavros Evangelakakis, CCA Chairman of the Board and Head of Global Healthcare, Cargolux. We believe that we can achieve so much more through cross-industry collaboration than we ever could working independently in silos.”

Pharma.Aero and the CCA will collaborate on projects to review and recommend new industry processes and guidelines.

“By promoting harmonious processes across perishables and pharma we hope to facilitate a holistic and sustainable approach to air cargo, highlighting where the industry can simplify operations with better handling, reduce waste with improved data visibility, and increase profits with more efficient processes,” said Nicola Caristo, CCA Secretary General and Senior Quality Manager, SkyCell AG.

The associations are looking to compare critical control points identified in the CCA's perishable trials with those recognised by Pharma.Aero in the pharmaceutical supply chain, using IATA's CEIV Pharma and Fresh certifications as benchmarks to identify shared standards for improving the cold chain.

“We are excited about the prospect of joint industry projects that will not only drive advancements but also set new benchmarks for industry collaboration,” said Trevor Caswell, Chairman, Pharma.Aero. By joining forces, we aim to leverage our collective expertise to address the evolving challenges in the life science temperature-controlled logistics.”

“Collaboration between associations is an important element in the strategic development and exponential growth of Pharma.Aero,” said Frank Van Gelder, Secretary General, Pharma.Aero. By reaching out to our different industry colleagues, we assure joined focus and drive to bring the best to the industry."
