Qatar Airways Cargo becomes a member of Cool Chain Association

Jul 28, 2021

Qatar Airways Cargo has extended its cool chain industry partnerships by joining Cool Chain Association (CCA), a non-profit organisation, effective 28 July 2021. Founded in 2003, the association aims to reduce food wastage and improve the quality, efficiency and value of the temperature sensitive supply chain by facilitating and enabling vertical and horizontal collaboration, education and innovation amongst its members and stakeholders.

Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo at Qatar Airways said, “Through our membership with Cool Chain Association, we look forward to collaborating with its members, and contributing to CCA’s vision of improving quality of temperature-sensitive products, increasing sustainability and reducing waste, thereby also contributing to the health of the planet, which aligns with our sustainability program WeQare.”

“CCA members are focused on developing tangible programs and backing projects which help reduce food waste and ensure that life saving pharma consignments safely reach their destination and this has never been more relevant than now,” said Stavros Engelakakis, Chairman, CCA.

“We are pleased that the cargo carrier’s Senior Manager of Climate Control Products, Miguel Rodriguez Moreno is joining the board, Qatar Airways Cargo’s shared commitment to our goals and its vision for WeQare combined with Miguel’s wealth of experience in the cool chain supply chain makes him the perfect addition to our association.”

Qatar Airways Cargo will join CCA and its members to deliver contributions in improving the cool chain and sustainable transport of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical and perishable cargo. Such concrete contributions like the CCA Technical Committee, that oversees and assists in projects addressing critical points affecting product quality along the cool chain, as well as developing standards and initiating projects will indirectly reduce global hunger and contribute to overall health of people and the planet. Through the membership, the airline will also participate in Cool Chain Association’s board meetings and focus groups to contribute its expertise.

The carrier has established innovative solutions for the air freight of pharmaceuticals and perishables. It has also invested considerably in quality handling, infrastructure, digitalisation, facilities, people and procedures at each of its destinations, including the Doha hub, adhering to high operating standards for transporting all temperature-controlled products.
