Plung­ing ahead lo­gis­ti­cally

Cargo Talk - - Report -

The first Bangladeshi cargo truck ar­rived in Delhi in the month of Septem­ber, cre­at­ing his­tory, by mov­ing seam­lessly through cus­toms free bor­ders. This trial run was or­gan­ised to help de­velop the pro­to­cols for im­ple­ment­ing the Bangladesh Bhutan In­dia Nepal (BBIN) Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle Agree­ment (MVA).

De­spite be­ing the fastest mode for move­ment of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, air is los­ing its share in phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal trans­porta­tion. The IATA CEIV pharma cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is help­ing the in­dus­try in set­ting new stan­dards and work­ing with avi­a­tion in­dus­try stake­hold­ers to achieve ex­cel­lence in phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal han­dling. Many air­lines, be it Turk­ish Cargo, Lufthansa, Air France KLM, are join­ing CEIV pharma com­mu­nity to en­sure that phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal ship­ments are han­dled re­li­ably.

Emi­rates SkyCargo has been awarded the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of com­pli­ance un­der the EU Good Dis­tri­bu­tion Prac­tice guide­lines (GDP) for medic­i­nal prod­ucts for hu­man use.

The coun­try’s di­verse cli­mate al­lows it to be­come one of the world’s largest pro­duc­ers of fruits and veg­eta­bles but lack of ba­sic in­fra­struc­ture, it is mak­ing us lose a good amount of rev­enue from per­ish­ables.

CARGOTALK throws light on one of the most im­por­tant pa­ram­e­ters of in­fra­struc­tures, i.e. pack­ag­ing, to un­der­stand its im­por­tance in the lo­gis­tics of per­ish­ables. GMR In­ter­na­tional Hy­der­abad Air­port or­gan­ised a one-day work­shop, re­al­is­ing the need of ad­e­quate in­fra­struc­ture for han­dling of per­ish­ables. In­dia’s first Good Dis­tri­bu­tion Process (GDP) warehouse un­veiled cargo satel­lite build­ing at the Hy­der­abad air­port to ex­clu­sively han­dle phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal lo­gis­tics.

There has been a tremen­dous growth in the coun­try’s lo­gis­tics sec­tor. More­over, with GST in line, in­dus­try lead­ers are ex­pect­ing to wit­ness ease of do­ing busi­ness in lo­gis­tics, re­sult­ing in growth of the sec­tor.
