Temperature excursions during the air transportation of pharmaceutical shipments carry a big cost to the pharma industry. To minimise and prevent such excursions, shippers want a greater transparency throughout the supply chain. The idea was raised that a coherent and uniform door-to-door data stream on shipment level being hosted on a common data sharing platform could be a solution.
The project aims to prove that different shipment data from different systems and in different formats can be ingested and displayed on a dashboard to enhance the visibility throughout the supply chain.
Project status and key-takeaways
This project was finalized in 2018.
To develop this platform and establish transparent and certified pharma trade lanes, Pharma.Aero determined two main levers:
- The identification of data (e.g. common KPIs) that must be collected amongst stakeholders
- The definition of the required technologies to collect, integrate and share these data in the form of a dashboard
A prerequisite is that the different stakeholders must be willing to work together and to share data. The project group developed a proof-of-concept that it was possible to collect and combine different data streams into a single data-sharing platform. This model was subsequently presented to our strategic pharma shipper members and received their acceptance.
