Our joint efforts will guide us through these turbulent times towards the creation of stable and common rules for all the stakeholders. Not only has Pharma.Aero expanded its influence and regional coverage in the recent years but it has also strengthened its collaboration with like-minded industry partners across the globe to guarantee the integrity of life-saving products and we look forward to shaping the future of pharmaceutical logistics together.”
