Making Delhi the pharma gateway
At the workshop hosted by Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal on pharma, shippers and industry experts discussed the issues connected to logistics service providers and all that the providers demand from the shipper. The workshop was held on January 22, 2016.
Besides discussing the issues, the symposium also aimed at creating awareness about the facilities available at Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal and Delhi airport which can augment the movement of pharmaceuticals products in Delhi. The event was graced by Dr IS Hura, Assistant Drug Controller, Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation, shippers, representatives from Delhi International Airport and Celebi.
Sanjiv Edward, Head – Cargo, DIAL said, “Shippers are not only the customer but the ambassador. By sitting through board meetings with management of Celebi in Delhi and in headquarters, we are very committed to building a good facility for cargo business. As an airport we also work with the entire community and forums such as ACFI which comprises forwarders, airlines, custom brokers. There is a special working group on pharmaceuticals in ACFI that is basically focussed on simplifying movement of pharmaceuticals. India is the third largest in this world. If we look at the generic drugs, we are the biggest producer. We are a promising industry and continuously growing.”
Edward asked shippers to come up with their demands because “you are making drugs to heal people’s pain and we would like to deal with your pain”. Hora thanked Celebi for organising the workshop which was to help the pharma industry. “I request all stakeholders to cooperate with regulations made by government and submit documents properly,” he added.
Rishi from DIAL also came up with a presentation to prove Delhi as a ‘Cargo Gateway to India & World’ and talked about key elements for the success of airports.
