Qatar Airways Cargo has joined the non-profit Cool Chain Association (CCA), effective yesterday (28 July).
The association was founded in 2003 and 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.
Qatar Airways’ chief officer cargo Guillaume Halleux 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 programme WeQare.”
CCA’s chairman Stavros Engelakakis commented: “CCA members are focused on developing tangible programmes 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.
“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.”
