Delta Cargo continues expanding on pharma front
Delta Cargo has launched its "Dash critical & medical" service from Boston MA (USA). Introduced earlier this year, the service is now available from 15 US locations: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Detroit, La Guardia (New York), Los Angeles, Memphis, Minneapolis, Orlando, Rochester (New York), Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Savannah and Seattle, to 89 mainland US destinations and Hawaii. A further expansion is planned for 2018.
The Atlanta GA-based airline says its "Dash critical & medical" is the first fully GPS-enabled, same-day product offered by a US freight and passenger carrier. It provides real-time tracking and monitoring of any eligible shipment, and customers can ship items up until 45 minutes prior to the scheduled flight departure. (ah)
