March 30, 2021: Air Cargo Belgium and Brussels Airport Companyâ€™s has launched dedicated Covid-19 vaccine taskforce, BRUcure readiness label. This label can be used by companies in the taskforce and indicates that a company is fully ready to transport, handle or store the Covid-19 vaccine.
Furthermore, the label strengthens the image of the taskforce company that is using the label.
The requirements to obtain the label are as below:
- A company should have dedicated pharma storage if it needs to store the vaccine. There is approximately 30,000 square metres of cold pharma storage at BRUcargo and it seems to increase as some companies are extending their capacity.
- The companies who obtained the label also follow the BRUcure Guideline Document on top of the existing Pharma Handling SOPâ€™s and apply the guidelines that Air Cargo Belgium has created where applicable.
- The companies use the Airside Pharma Transporter (APT) in procedure. It aims to guarantee there is no temperature deviation for the Covid-19 vaccine shipments.
- The companies intend to implement the digital platform so called CargoFlow Explorer. It is a digital solution developed by Nallian (invested by BAC) in order to get a full visibility for all pharma shipments.
Currently, 15 companies within the BRUcure Taskforce have already obtained the label such as Aviapartner Cargo, BollorÃ© Logistics, DHL Global Forwarding, Dnata, EFL Global, Expeditors, FB Logistics, Hazgo, Kuehne + Nagel, Lufthansa Cargo (Lufthansa, Brussels Airlines, Austrian Airlines), Singapore Airlines, Swissport Cargo Services, TUI, United Airlines, and WFS.
