Indian Pharma Shippers’ Forum will focus on sector demands and airfreight opportunities


India’s US$20 billion pharma industry will be the central focus of next year’s Air Cargo India Conference and Exhibition (Mumbai, February 4-6). 
India is fast emerging as a global manufacturing hub for pharmaceutical products, and the country’s booming pharmaceutical industry is expected to achieve annual growth of around 8% by 2015. 
Accordingly, the Air Cargo India Conference will feature a Pharma Shippers’ Forum, co-hosted by Schiphol Cargo and event organizer STAT Times, designed to bring shippers, freight forwarders and logistics providers, airlines, handling agents and others together to discuss the special needs of the sector, the airfreight industry’s response to date, and how the industry can fully exploit this valuable evolving market in the future. 
The Forum will adopt the now proven “Schiphol” round-table format, in which experienced moderator Enno Osinga (Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s Senior VP Cargo) will begin proceedings by posing probing questions to a number of airfreight industry specialists present. The floor will be opened up to questions and comments from the audience, which is expected to include a significant attendance by India’s 800-strong pharma manufacturing sector. 
The President of FIEO (Federation of Indian Exports Organisation), Mr.Rafeeque Ahmad, will deliver the keynote address at the Conference, to which all 13000 FIEO members (who include Pharma exporters) will be invited. 
Co-organiser of the Pharma Shippers’ Forum is Bart Pouwels, Schiphol Cargo’s resident sector expert on pharma, lifescience and perishables, whose career has also included several years as the senior manager of pharma business for a major global logistics provider. 
Says Pouwels: “Schiphol itself already has a heavy commitment to this sector, having  successfully facilitated growth of pharma traffic from India, using Amsterdam as a gateway to other continents such as the Americas. But there is potential for much more growth both on our route and to other major markets. This Forum will provide an ideal opportunity to pool knowledge and expertise, and also for the airfreight industry to learn first-hand what more it needs to do to support the pharma sector in its efforts to realize its full potential.” 
Priyo Patra, Director of STAT Media, adds: “Worldwide pharmaceutical and life science shipments from India have been on a growth trajectory, with the cumulative export revenue of the Indian Pharmaceutical industry touching USD 17.4bn in 2012 - and projected to top USD 20.8 bn in 2013. This creates a need to deliver these products to the ultimate user in the most efficient manner. 
“With the top 100 pharmaceutical companies invited to the forum and the participation of regulators, temperature controlled warehouse operators, airlines, airports and other stakeholders, the event will be an excellent platform for networking, and arriving at tangible solutions that all participants can apply to achieve a successful and compliant pharma supply chain.”
