High hopes for Etihad's pharma shipments
Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics arm of UAE national carrier Etihad Airways, reports a 50% yoy rise in pharma shipments under its "PharmaLife" product. The growth comes as the carrier marks its second anniversary of achieving and operating Iata CEIV certification for pharmaceutical and life science logistics, in conjunction with its Abu Dhabi hub and Etihad Airport Services.
Martin Drew, SVP sales and cargo: "The Iata CEIV certification has reaffirmed the carrier’s strength in this sector and strengthened partner trust to deliver a quality product solution across 54 pharma stations with dedicated experts available for advice."
The recent launch of the Hope Consortium has contributed to the end of year increase and is expected to support the carrier's pharma shipment growth through 2021. (ah)
