To further expand its engagement in the region, DoKaSch Temperature Solutions has announced James Savio as its new business development manager India.
Savio has many years of experience in the Indian market, and his last position was with InterGlobe Air Transport, the general sales agency for Etihad Airways Cargo, as regional manager south.
Savio said: “I want to expand the market presence of DoKaSch Temperature Solutions across the pharmaceuticals main markets in India, and also ensure that DoKaSch TS is valued as a trusted and reliable safe temperature solutions company in India and global.”
Prior to working at InterGlobe Air Transport, Savio spent time at Allied Aviation Private Ltd. where he was responsible for Bangalore as regional manager.
He also worked as manager sales and services for Aviation Travels Private Ltd., the general sales agency of Singapore Airlines Cargo.
Savio is also trained in quality management for pharmaceuticals.
Savio said: “Due to my previous career, I’ve gained valuable insights about what the freight customers want and demand.”
Many pharma and biotech companies are based in India and have taken a lead in the pharma supply chain, driving changes at airports where pharmaceuticals are handled – for example, a dedicated facility for temperature controlled sensitive facilities such as cool port and pharma zone, which is the first of a kind in the country.
Indian airports such as Bangalore, Mumbai, and Hyderabad International Airport are expanding their infrastructure.
DoKaSch TS has operated a service station at Hyderabad International Airport since 2021.
Savio said: “The companies are looking for reliable temperature solution partners such as DoKaSch Temperature Solutions. That’s a big advantage for our company.”
Andreas Seitz, managing director at DoKaSch Temperature Solutions, said: “India is an important market for the production of pharmaceuticals, biosimilars and biotech.
“With James Savio as business development manager India, DoKaSch TS is further expanding its engagement in this region.”
