AirBridgeCargo and Bollore keep pharma shipments flying

Comment on this article

When a major pharmaceutical company urgently needed to transport diabetes treatment, AirBridgeCargo (ABC) Airlines and Bollore Logistics came together to keep supply chains moving.

The two companies collaborated to transport 25 tonnes of cargo as ground handling operations were disrupted across Hong Kong and major airports in mainland China due to the Delta variant of Covid-19 causing passenger flights to be cancelled.

A charter flight was organised from Milan, Italy to Shanghai, China carrying 38 RAP containers from Envirotainer and DoKaSch on the main deck of a Boeing 747.

Yulia Celetaria, Global Healthcare Director of Volga-Dnepr Group says that despite life coming back to normal, supply chains are still being disrupted, but the airline will work hard to find an effective solution.

She says: “Thanks to aligned relations with the leading container providers, a team of local experts, support of ground handling partners, we were able to organise a dedicated charter with one of the life-saving medicines which is as important for us as vaccines and other healthcare products.”
