Emirates SkyCargo receives award for pharma cool chain capabilities

Emirates SkyCargo has been named as the ‘Safest Global Airline Partner’ for the year 2021 for the transportation of temperature sensitive pharmaceutical shipments by SkyCell, one of the leading global manufacturers of specialised containers for the transportation of sensitive pharmaceuticals by air. The title was awarded to Emirates on the basis of SkyCell’s global shipment data for pharmaceutical cargo which ranked carriers on a number of criteria including stability of transport temperature conditions across a range of origins and destinations.

Over the last five years, the air cargo carrier has invested significantly in the development of purpose-built, EU GDP certified infrastructure for pharma transport at its hub and working closely with its ground handling partners at major pharma origins and destinations across the world to ensure enhanced protection for temperature sensitive pharmaceutical cargo.  Emirates has also invested in a dedicated fleet of over 50 Cool Dollys for pharmaceutical cargo for temperature protection on the ramp at Dubai.

SkyCell’s containers use an innovative material technology to maintain sensitive cargo at a stable temperature even under extreme outside temperatures for a period of several days.  Emirates SkyCargo maintains a dedicated stock of SkyCell containers at Dubai for availability at short notice for global pharma customers.
