SkyCell & Air France KLM Martinair Cargo Extend Collaboration for Pharma Logistics

In an effort to extend improved and innovative services for clients, SkyCell – known as the fourth largest pharma airfreight container provider, and
Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, confirmed they will extend their collaboration globally with plans to present it to the global AF KLM network. Air France KLM Martinair Cargo boasts one of the largest and densest global networks.

“Air France KLM Martinair Cargo values of Transparency, Innovation and Care match the values of SkyCell: we are both committed to provide the highest quality standards to our clients in the most transparent and innovative way. SkyCell is driven by technological innovation in pharma transport technology and that is why we want to work very close together,” said Enrica Calonghi, Global Head of Pharmaceutical Logistics at Air France KLM Martinair Cargo.

In a recent evaluation from one of the Big Four international audit companies, SkyCell’s shipments from the last 12 months showed a
0.1 percent of the transports involved a temperature excursion with their containers. The companies share a common theme in transparency in addition to customer-driven services.

“Air France KLM Martinair Cargo is a pioneer in pharma airfreight services and has an extensive network. With a shared vision of innovation in the supply chain of temperature-sensitive products, our collaboration will ensure that consumers are guaranteed a safe and sustainable service. We will also further improve our services through SkyCell’s data-driven approach,” said Richard Ettl, CEO of SkyCell.
