Turkish Cargo aims to be in top 5 pharma carriers by 2023

14 June 2017 | Turkey


Chiff cargo officer Turhan Ozen says he wants Turkish Cargo to become one of the top five pharma carriers by 2023.

Speaking at a recent Pharma Day panel of industry representatives in Frankfurt organised by the carrier's cargo sales team, he said pharma was an important part of Turkish Airlines' strategy to increase its presence in the special cargo sector.

He has earlier said that manufacturing and distribution of pharma products was becoming increasingly complex with multi-site manufacturing strategies. With growing use of personalised medicines and increasing demand in emerging markets, regulations were becoming more onerous and there was market consolidation in the pharma industry.

Ozen called on the air cargo industry to invest in end-to-end visibility, better data management and end-to-end compliance with regulations.

At the Frankfurt panel, pharma industry delegates urged the setting up of a dedicated team for special cargo at the new Istanbul airport currently under construction.
