Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP) has formed a taskforce to define the steps needed to help ship Covid-19 vaccines. Working in close consultation with the pharma industry and related forwarders, the airline has assessed specific requirements for shipping Covid-19 vaccines when they become available. It has adapted its operation in terms of equipment and dedicated monitoring and service, as well as the capacity it can offer.

Enrica Calonghi, global head of pharmaceutical logistics at the carrier, said: “AFKLMP Cargo is ready to play a key role in the distribution of Covid-19 vaccines, thereby helping to ensure that as many people as possible around the globe will have access to vaccines in these challenging times.”

AFKLMP has operated over 5,500 cargo-only flights since the start of the corona crisis.
