Airlines show they CARE

SINGAPORE: June 22, 2017. Lufthansa Cargo, Swiss WorldCargo, United Cargo and Emirates SkyCargo have won DHL's 'Carrier Award for Reliability and Excellence' (CARE).

Presented at the company's Global Life Sciences and Healthcare Conference, the CARE award acknowledges airlines whose services set the industry standard for the transport of temperature-sensitive life sciences products.

DHL said the winners were chosen based on several criteria including shipment quality, ground handling expertise and innovation in both technology and process.

DHL CARE awards"Today's consumers demand much faster and more flexible delivery of medications, medical devices and other life sciences products than ever before," said Scott Allison, president, Life Sciences & Healthcare, at DHL.

"With the online pharmaceutical market set to grow to US$128 billion by 2023, the pressure is on air cargo carriers to provide temperature-controlled air services with the high levels of speed, shipment quality and real-time visibility needed to cope with the sheer velocity of demand," he continued.

The award recipients all demonstrated extremely high levels of shipment performance, combined with a variety of factors including rigorous certification and bold infrastructural investments, according to DHL.

Commenting on the award Ashwin Bhat, Head of Cargo at SWISS said: "It is a great honour for us to be nominated again for the DHL CARE Award, we are very proud. We also are encouraged to be on the right track on tackling the two major challenges that determine our business nowadays: the increasing need for customization and the complexity of the regulatory framework. We will continue to improve on these core challenges and finding innovative solutions for our clients."

Martin Schmitt, Lufthansa Cargo board member and CFO added: "We are very pleased to receive this year's DHL CARE Award. Carrying sensitive pharmaceuticals fast and reliably to their destinations all over the world is a task that makes us proud. It is also a reason for us to expand our cool center, so that all our customers can benefit from increased cool capacities at our hub in Frankfurt shortly."

David Bang, Global head of DHL Temperature Management Solutions and CEO LifeConEx at DHL Global Forwarding observed: "Since the first DHL CARE Awards hosted last year, we have seen a significant trend amongst carriers towards higher levels of certification, innovative commercial agreements with packaging and data-tracking partners, and bespoke infrastructure for pharmaceutical goods."
