Turkish Cargo: Moving medicine for 25 years

Turkish Cargo: moving medicine

Back by the world’s strongest cargo flight network, Turkish Cargo is key player when it comes to the country’s medical exports. Today, the carrier announced that it has been carrying Turkey’s medicine and medical products to over 50 countries in five continents for over 25 years.

In the nuclear medicine sector, the flag carrier plays an important role for cancer patients to reliably reach high quality diagnosis and treatment products in Turkey and abroad. Turkish Cargo carries radioactive cancer diagnosis medicine used in the treatment of cancer and tumours to Germany, Colombia, India, Algeria, Taiwan and all around the world.

With 8% market share in medical transportation, the national brand says it “gives hope to cancer patients by providing fast and safe transportation for radioactive medicine with half-life, which are produced at night by Eczacıbaşı-Monrol.”

Eczacıbaşı-Monrol Nuclear Products general manager Aydın Küçük stated: “Our mission as Eczacıbaşı-Monrol is to benefit human lives with innovative and pioneering approaches when it comes to diagnosis and treatment of life threatening illnesses.

“As Turkey’s first radiopharmaceutical manufacturer, we are one of the significant producers of nuclear medicine for cancer treatment in the world and we export our products to over 50 countries. We can deliver these successes to patients all around the world from Europe, Africa, America and Far East thanks to our strong logistical operation. With this in mind, Turkish Cargo is one of our strongest supporters since 1995 with its speed, operational quality and wide transportation network.”

Special cargo operations

Turkish Cargo’s medicine and medical product transportation operations conducted with its operational quality, special transportation methods and expert teams, reach over 300 destinations. Stored in rooms featuring special temperature control with necessary infrastructure, medicine shipments are protected with specialist teams.

Also possessing the IATA CEIV (Center of Excellence for Independent Validators) Pharma certificate, Turkish Cargo maintains the cold chain at ideal conditions with its TK Pharma product designed with global standards for medicine and vaccine transportations.

Maintaining its dialog with medical manufacturers, transportation companies, airports, ground operations and official authorities, the brand says it can meet the requirements of medicine and vaccine producers when it comes to transportations at ultra-frozen range (70° C) by using its specially frozen containers such as dry ice and vehicles.
