BONN: July 02, 2018. Highlight of DHL's 18th Life Science and Healthcare conference at Lake Maggiore, Italy last month was its acknowledgement of Lufthansa Cargo, Swiss WorldCargo, Emirates SkyCargo and Cathay Pacific Cargo for their reliability and excellence in carrying temperature-sensitive life science products.

DHL lifescience awards“The transport of medical products and medications is an especially demanding undertaking,” said Scott Allison, DHL president Life Sciences & Healthcare. “These are life-saving products, and customers are increasingly demanding faster delivery with a higher level of transparency at the same time. The volume of products is also on the rise, thanks to the growing online pharmaceutical business.”

DHL says as airlines strive to provide best-in-class services in the life sciences and healthcare sector, more and more of them have adopted Good Distribution Practices (GDP) certifications, based on European Union guidelines, and qualified under IATA’s CEIV Pharma programme.

“What stands out even more this year is the fact that the fundamental service levels of our preferred carrier partners have increased universally while the winners managed to score higher on data transparency, extreme ambient temperature avoidance and investment in innovation such as real-time shipment monitoring,” explained David Bang, CEO LifeConEx/Global head of DHL Temperature Management Solutions.

DHL Global Forwarding says 30 stations on its network are now IATA CEIV Pharma certified following successful employee training courses and third-party audits.
