Sky Fresh thinking for all-cargo carrier

[ November 24, 2017   //   ]

AirBridgeCargo Airlines has signed a Service Level Agreement on digital procedures for time and temperature sensitive pharma shipments with online web platform Sky Fresh.

The cooperation allows paper cargo acceptance checklists to be digitised and data centralised data from all sources, with automated notifications sent to all supply chain stakeholders. Users will be able to complete checklists via a mobile application and all real-time data is visible on the Sky Fresh Web platform, accessible in any browser.

ABC’s global director, pharma Fedor Novikov, commented: “It is not every day we see cutting-edge technologies penetrating into the air cargo industry, which makes Sky Fresh an attractive industry and tech-savvy solution. We foresee it propelling the quality of our abcPharma product, bringing it to the next level by eliminating the potential of human error.

For the first 10 months of 2017, ABC has reported its highest-ever growth in pharmaceuticals carried, rising 153% year-on-year. The airline achieved IATA CEIV Pharma certification at the end of 2016, Envirotainer QEP accreditation for certain online stations in 2017, and is training a pool of specialists in time and temperature sensitive cargo.
