BRUSSELS: March 08, 2019. Belgian data sharing specialist Nallian is launching its Global Pharma Tracker (GPT) for temperature-controlled pharmaceutical shipments at the IATA World Cargo Symposium in Singapore next week.

Sichuan Airlines A330 200According to the company, its GPT is the world's first data sharing platform for end-to-end tracking and monitoring to enable pharma shippers to efficiently detect, act upon and ultimately prevent costly temperature excursions - currently causing billions worth of product loss every year.

The GPT integrates logistics, temperature and quality data from a multi-sector supply chain into a single, real-time view.

Following a successful proof of concept and pilot with the Pharma.Aero user group, including Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, MSD, Brussels Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Mumbai Airport, Brussels Airport, Changi Airport and DHL Global Forwarding, Nallian has launched an “early adopter” programme for the sector.

Company CEO Jean Verheyen said it was the logical next step for the pharma industry: “Users of the [GPT] will leverage the benefits manifold: internally, within their local community, across validated pharma corridors and ultimately across the global network. With a cost of US$35 billion caused by temperature excursions, we trust the Global Pharma Tracker represents a major opportunity for the industry.”

In a related announcement, Sichuan Airlines Cargo is to begin a three-times weekly A330 freighter service from Chengdu to Brussels by the end of April, and says it plans to increase the frequency to six by 2020.
