Take a look at these three essential take-outs from our seventh episode of the series…

Bryan Dietz, Senior Vice President of Air Service and Commercial Development, Pittsburgh International Airport  

“We are on a mission to redefine what it means to be an airport. Often airports in the United States can be a point of frustration and disappointment. That’s why, since 2017, we’ve teamed up with airlines such as IAG Cargo to up our game with cargo in ways that many airports do only from a passenger perspective. It’s enabled us to offer a faster, easier, and more efficient experience by shipping cargo through our airport and putting in the same amount of energy, effort, and resources as we do with passenger service. That’s how we’ve become more efficient during the pandemic and can measure the time it takes to move cargo in minutes and hours rather than days and weeks. We are reimagining how an airport can increase your customer’s efficiency by providing them with solutions that save time and money.”

Niklas Adamsson, Chief Operating Officer, Envirotainer

“We are a very purpose-driven company. We enable global access to pharmaceuticals because lives depend on it. On average, every day our equipment delivers more than 2.5 million doses of pharmaceuticals or vaccines on a global basis. During Covid, we delivered more than 1 billion doses of the vaccine around the world. Our core values are to be passionate, sustainable, agile in providing solutions, trustworthy, and keep a good team spirit with our colleagues, partners, and customers. Envirotainer is a global company with the largest fleet of active ULDs in the market, with more than 60 stations globally. We have found new and easy ways of cooperating, staying ahead of the curb, and providing new solutions to the market to make sure pharmaceuticals and vaccines are delivered every day as expected.”

“Destination Digital is our journey which will see us partner closely with our customers, adopting digital processes to support sustainable operations whilst offering a better customer proposition. This consists of multiple initiatives and enablers, ultimately allowing us to optimise our processes to deliver benefits to our partners. An electronic air waybill is the first step towards E-freight. An air waybill is our most critical cargo document, and an e-air waybill is a digital version of this. We believe using an e-air waybill will help us become more efficient and sustainable, as well as improve data quality and accuracy. As a result, we will continue to better our services, become more cost effective, and enable future innovation.”
