Miami, Florida, 13th August 2020: The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) along with the leading pharma shippers cross-industry linking company, Pharma.Aero, have announced that both the organizations have joined forces for enabling optimal transportation of the COVID-19 vaccine by the development of global guidance for the air cargo industry. The announcement by both the organizations came into contrast on the back of the need to provide greater focus on the quality of supply chain requirements and to provide greater clarity on the expectations and demands of the air cargo industry.

According to the plan of the programme, the guidance is anticipated to be developed in four work packages through joint working groups. These working groups would then provide feedback from all the stakeholders who are associated with the supply chain of pharmaceuticals and air cargo.

Air freight has always played a pivotal role in critical circumstances. Whether it be during an environmental disaster, a war arena or even a pandemic, such as the COVID-19 crisis. The cargo association anticipates the importance of the air freight in the days to come, especially when the vaccine for COVID-19 would be announced globally, and therefore the need to distribute these essential medical supplies in the fight against the pandemic.

The pandemic crisis has devastated the world, especially by taking numerous lives, which according to the World Health Organization, constituted to a total of 20.16 million confirmed cases as on the 12th of August 2020 (5:05pm CEST). Moreover, several organizations across different industries have been drawn to the court for bankruptcy, affecting millions of lives with their jobs.

As the race for developing the vaccine for the disease is on with several pharmaceutical companies participating with their efforts, it is still unclear of the logistic requirements that would be required for the safe distribution of the vaccine that is anticipated to come within the next few months. As a result, the guidance developed by TIACA along with Pharma.Aero would help significantly to all the pharma shippers to pave the path in understanding the capabilities of the various logistics players and also help to make them ready to respond effectively and efficiently according to the need of the hour.

The Global Head of Airfreight at Flexport and a board member of TIACA, Neel Jones Shah, stated in his comments that the delivery of COVID-19 vaccine would be one of the biggest logistical challenges that the world would observe, and it is not merely possible by one single company to own end-to-end vaccine supply chain. He further cited the importance of working together to ensure the industry preparedness in the time of need.
