Perishables and Pharma are the two major topics of discussion in the industry

There is no denying that the transportation of pharma and perishables constitute two of the hottest topics of debate in the freight industry at the moment.

The e-commerce boom has mandated that perishables and pharma products are shipped in the fastest and most efficient way.

Medical patients can simply not wait for prescribed products; those who want fresh fruit and vegetables want them quickly. Air freight has met this instant demand, as companies are beginning to use transportation by air over sea because of waiting times.
