The Cool Chain Association joins Cargo iQ’s latest initiative to support supply chain quality

February 17, 2021

CCA members will take part in a Cargo iQ Pilot Program exploring Care Mapping in the pharma cool chain

Luxembourg and Geneva, Monday 17th February 2020: The Cool Chain Association (CCA) is backing a new Cargo iQ initiative for Care Mapping in the temperature-controlled supply chain.

CCA members will join an Advisory Board supporting Cargo iQ’s Pilot Program, which aims to develop tools and standards for planning and control, as well as for process and provider evaluation of conditions under which shipments move.

“CCA members are focused on improving the cool chain to help reduce food loss and to ensure that life-saving pharma shipments arrive safely with the patients that need them,” said Stavros Evangelakakis, CCA Chairman, and Head of Global Healthcare at Cargolux Airlines.

“To achieve true transparency and move the industry forward, it is vital that we collaborate and share knowledge with like-minded stakeholders such as Cargo iQ and its members.”

Cargo iQ’s Care Mapping Pilot will initially focus on pharmaceuticals, with other Special Care services, such as valuables, live animals, and perishables, being road-tested once the methodology has been finalised.

“Cargo iQ works with leading stakeholders such as CCA from across the air cargo industry to test the concept and help develop a simple, scalable method to provide both top-down and bottom-up planning, as well as transparency for all operators in the supply chain,” said Ariaen Zimmerman, Executive Director, Cargo iQ.

CCA will be announcing a series of new initiatives and events over the coming months, all focused on delivering tangible benefits to the temperature-controlled supply chain.

CCA will host two events this year, its Eighth Pharma and Biosciences Conference in Vienna, Austria, on the 21st and 22nd September 2020, and a Perishables Conference in Cape Town, South Africa, in June.

Cargo iQ will officially launch its Care Mapping Pilot, announcing the companies that are taking part, at the International Air Transport Association (IATA)’s World Cargo Symposium, Istanbul, Turkey, on 11th March 2020.

Cargo iQ will also hold its Annual General Meeting in Istanbul together with announcement of another Pilot on parameters for service differentiation.

Cargo iQ Pilots are open to any relevant company and are not restricted to Cargo iQ members.

Cargo iQ’s next working group meeting will be held from 12-14 May 2020. Location to be announced in due course.
