Mumbai Airport to have half a million-tonne capacity pharma terminal

As the dynamic growth of Indian pharma industry positions it as the third largest pharmaceuticals market in the world in terms of value and eleventh largest in terms of volume, the healthcare cold chain logistics market is being analyzed to exhibit lucrative opportunities. Needless to say, the criticality of the lifesaving products is indisputable and customers are increasingly demanding risk lane assessments. So when Mumbai International Airport became the first Indian airport to join the Pharma.Aero initiative in early 2017, it came as a breadth of fresh air to pharma stakeholders. Pharma.Aero is the cross industry collaboration for pharma shippers, CEIV certified cargo communities, airport operators and other air cargo industry stakeholders that focuses on improving pharma handling and quality in the air cargo industry.
