QA in pact with SkyCell to support global vaccination logistic plan

September 29, 2020

Qatar Airways Cargo and SkyCell have signed an agreement to lease SkyCell containers. The addition of these temperature-controlled hybrid containers will provide the cargo carrier’s customers the choice of a wide range of containers to transport their pharmaceuticals across its extensive global network.
QA Chief Officer Cargo Guillaume Halleux said, “The logistics around pharmaceutical transportation is complex and being at the forefront of time and temperature sensitive transportation, we understand the intricacies of a seamless cold chain. Through this agreement with SkyCell, we are glad to expand our container offering under QR Pharma and present customers with more options to transport their sensitive products. The hybrid container establishes an entirely new product offering for our clients that is both safe and sustainable for our businesses and the planet.”
The significant investments in these hybrid containers and cold chain management is part of the cargo carrier’s strategy and commitment to improving and enhancing its product offering for the benefit of the pharmaceutical industry globally. With these investments, the airline is also preparing to support the logistics around the global vaccination plans, once the COVID-19 vaccine is ready.
