SkyCell announces global collaboration with AirFrance KLM Martinair Cargo

SkyCell and Air France KLM Martinair Cargo have announced a global cooperation to work more closely together on existing and future pharmaceutical logistics business.

Richard Ettl, CEO

Air France KLM Martinair Cargo is a pioneer in pharma airfreight services and has an extensive network. With a shared vision of innovation in the supply chain of temperature-sensitive products, our collaboration will ensure that consumers are guaranteed a safe and sustainable service. We will also further improve our services through SkyCells data-driven approach.

Both, SkyCell and Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, are quality-driven companies, constantly pushing for innovation and better services for their clients. Air France KLM Martinair Cargo has one of the largest and densest networks in the world, serving over 241 destinations. Transparency throughout the shipment’s journey is one of the key points where AFKLMP & SkyCell are in close collaboration in order to deliver real-time data to their customers.

Enrica Calonghi, Global Head of Pharmaceutical Logistics at Air France KLM Martinair Cargo

Air France KLM Martinair Cargo values of transparency, innovation and care match the values of SkyCell: we are both committed to providing the highest quality standards to our clients in the most transparent and innovative way. SkyCell is driven by technological innovation in pharma transport technology and that is why we want to work very close together.

In a recent transport of temperature-sensitive vaccines by Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, two SkyCell containers were used, one SkyCell 1500c and one SkyCell 2500c, set at a temperature of +5° Celsius. The precious cargo from a leading British pharma company was transported successfully from Rome-Fiumicino to Washington Dulles International Airport without any temperature excursions and in due time in order to deliver medicines through the US.

Take a look at the SkyCell Temperature Tracking System: the temperature inside the container stays at a constant 5°C (blue line) meanwhile the ambient temperature (red line) varies between +2° to +18°C.

Air France KLM Martinair Cargo and SkyCell are looking forward to rolling out their collaboration to the global AF KLM network with the goal of enabling pharmaceutical companies to benefit from the global network and eliminate temperature excursions.
