Transportation of COVID-19 Vaccines
Sunrays Project to help air cargo industry get ready
As pharmaceutical companies race to develop COVID-19 vaccines, it is still unclear what impact it will have on the global supply chain, specifically, logistics requirements and the air cargo industry readiness.
TIACA and Pharma.Aero joined forces and launched Sunrays project in August 2020 to help the air cargo industry get ready for this unprecedented challenge.
- Provide the air cargo industry with clarity of the needs and expectations from vaccines producers and better visibility on future COVID-19 vaccines specifications impacting logistics, like manufacturing sites, production volumes, handling and storage specificities, track and trace requirements.
- Provide pharma shippers with more visibility on existing airfreight capabilities: infrastructure on the ground, airfreight capacity, expertise, as well as better understanding of constraints and needs from airfreight providers to serve them adequately.
Results of the first air cargo readiness survey
The results of the first air cargo readiness survey, run in September 2020, showed that only 28% of our industry feels prepared for COVID-19 transportation globally.
