Pharma Transporter to be used on all Brussels Airlines shipments


Brussels Airlines Cargo is to include the pharma transporter in its default service for all pharma shipments requiring temperature control.

The airline is the launch customer for the Airside Pharma Transporter, a pilot project initiated by Brussels Airport to offer reliable controlled temperature transportation between the warehouse and aircraft for pharmaceutical goods.

Real-time data about the temperature is made available to the customer and shipper in order to guarantee instant follow-up, offering full transparency, as part of the project managed within the Brucargo Pharma Hub.

The Airside Pharma Transporter uses a new type of cooling technology and relies on solar power technology to operate autonomously for several days, allowing for energy neutral transportation of pharmaceutical shipments at Brussels Airport.

Brussels Airlines business development & product manager, Reinout Puissant says: “Brussels Airlines Cargo has decided to include the pharma transporter in its default service offer for all pharma shipments requiring temperature control.”

“We herewith respond to the request of the industry to take the lead in quality improvements throughout the entire supply chain, including the part we don’t operate ourselves.”

Four Airside Pharma Transporter vehicles are now available and approved for operational use at Brussels Airport, and Brussels Airlines Cargo will operate all available transporters as an integral part of its pharma product and routes.
