The Cool Chain Association (CCA) is backing a new Cargo iQ initiative for Care Mapping in the temperature-controlled supply chain.

CCA members will join an Advisory Board supporting Cargo iQ’s Pilot Programme, which aims to develop tools and standards for planning and control, as well as for process and provider evaluation of conditions under which shipments move.

“CCA members are focused on improving the cool chain to help reduce food loss and to ensure that life-saving pharma shipments arrive safely with the patients that need them,” explained Stavros Evangelakakis, CCA Chairman, and Head of Global Healthcare at Cargolux Airlines.

“To achieve true transparency and move the industry forward, it is vital that we collaborate and share knowledge with like-minded stakeholders such as Cargo iQ and its members.”

Cargo iQ’s Care Mapping Pilot will initially focus on pharmaceuticals, with other Special Care services, such as valuables, live animals and perishables being road-tested once the methodology has been finalised.
