Launch of New Healthcare-Focused Freight Offerings by Emirates SkyCargo

Emirates is increasing the scope of its premium pharmaceutical freight services.

Under its “Life Sciences and Healthcare” product line created for the worldwide healthcare business, Emirates SkyCargo has introduced two new services.

Emirates increases its custom freight services.

As part of its industry-leading Life Sciences and Healthcare portfolio, the Dubai-based carrier’s freight division, Emirates SkyCargo, has introduced the two customized services, Emirates Vital (AXT) and Emirates Medical Devices (AXM).Emirates SkyCargo’s Divisional Senior Vice President, Nabil Sultan, said:

Our pharmaceutical company, which is already a market leader, transports over 2 million kilograms of pharmaceutical goods worldwide each week. We have invested more than $200 million since 2015 to expand our capabilities, and as a result, we now have extensive knowledge and understanding of the pharmaceutical industry as well as the larger life sciences sector.

Aegean Vital

For “transporting clinical trials, human organs and tissues, cell and gene therapy,” Emirates Vital promises to offer a “white-glove” freight service with accelerated transit times and designated vans on the ramp for connecting flights.Sultan continued,

“By paying attention to our customers, we identified a chance to support the global health industry’s advancements in individualized patient treatments and meet the growing demand for priority services in air cargo logistics to move sensitive materials and equipment, such as those used in the study of advanced therapies like gene editing and cell therapy.

This will be the highest priority product level offered by Emirates SkyCargo and incorporates bulk hold storage for quicker unloading as well as control tower surveillance.

Medical devices by Emirates

The transportation of medical equipment is the only focus of Emirates Medical Devices. It will provide temperature and non-temperature management and can handle the whole range of medical equipment, big or little, including ventilators, MRI machines, and test kits.The service will adhere to the European Medical Device Regulations (MDR) as well as the Medical Device Regulations and Good Distribution Practices (GDP), a set of minimal requirements governing the distribution of medical devices across the supply chain.

Concerning Emirates SkyCargo

The two services will complement Emirates SkyCargo’s current trio of pharmaceutical freight options—Emirates Pharma, Pharma Plus, and Pharma Active—the latter of which provides the highest degree of security and management. The airline hinted at future developments to its growing freight product line.Along with its fleet of 11 specialized Boeing 777 freighters and two recently delivered Boeing 747Fs, Emirates’ cargo capacity consists of belly space in the holds of passenger aircraft. With over 150 destinations currently served across six continents, it claims that because to its special global positioning, it can “reach 2.5 billion people within 4 hours of flight.”

The cargo division plans to add 15 additional freighters to the fleet during the next five years, including 10 converted Boeing 777-300ERs and five new Boeing 777Fs, in order to increase its capacity over the next ten years. Additionally, Emirates will be adding two new widebodies to its passenger fleet in the future years, the Airbus A350 and Boeing 777Xs, increasing belly capacity.
