Pharma and Logistics Experts Meet at Frankfurt Event
Experts from the pharma and logistics industry met in Frankfurt for a sponsored event as part of the “Visit FRA Pharma” initiative.
The Air Cargo Community Frankfurt presented the broad range of services for the shipment of pharmaceutical products by airfreight at Frankfurt Airport to BVL International (the German Logistics Association) in the Rhein-Main region.
Joachim von Winning, Executive Director of the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt went on to say that, “The pharmaceutical industry has the most demanding requirements for airfreight. Many shipments are of very high value and extremely temperature sensitive and they often have to get to their destination quickly,”
Approximately 80 visitors attended the event and received a comprehensive update on current trends and developments on logistics and in particular for the transport of pharmaceutical products. Speakers included Andreas Gmür from Camelot Management Consultants and Andreas Seitz, Managing Director of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions. In addition to that, Dominik Misskampf, as Head of the Competence Team Pharma presented how FRA is committed to the shipment of pharmaceutical products and what special products and services are available to consignors.
“Frankfurt Airport is Europe´s number 1 in air freight – naturally as well with pharmaceuticals with more than 100,000 tons annually. We, as a community, are instrumental in securing and expanding this position in Frankfurt long-term, especially in regard to pharmaceutical companies and shippers,” said Joachim von Winning.
