Air Cargo Belgium, Brussels Airport launch ‘BRUcure Readiness Label’ indicating vaccine handling capabilities


Air Cargo Belgium and BRUcure– Brussels Airport Company’s dedicated COVID-19 vaccine taskforce has launched the BRUcure Readiness Label that can be used by companies in the taskforce and which tends to indicate that the company is fully ready to transport, handle or store the COVID-19 vaccine.

Furthermore, the label strengthens the image of the taskforce company that is using the label.

The requirements to obtain the label are as below:

  • A company should have dedicated pharma storage if it needs to store the vaccine. There is approximately 30,000 square metres of cold pharma storage at BRUcargo and it seems to increase as some companies are extending their capacity.
  • The companies who obtained the label also follow the BRUcure Guideline Document on top of the existing Pharma Handling SOP’s and apply the guidelines that Air Cargo Belgium has created where applicable.
  • The companies use the Airside Pharma Transporter (APT) in procedure. It aims to guarantee there is no temperature deviation for the COVID-19 vaccine shipments.
  • The companies intend to implement the digital platform so called CargoFlow Explorer. It is a digital solution developed by Nallian (invested by BAC) in order to get a full visibility for all pharma shipments.

Currently, 15 companies – Aviapartner Cargo, Bolloré Logistics, DHL Global Forwarding, dnata, EFL Global, Expeditors, FB Logistics, Hazgo, Kuehne + Nagel, Lufthansa Cargo (Lufthansa, Brussels Airlines, Austrian Airlines), Singapore Airlines, Swissport Cargo Services, TUI, United Airlines, and WFS – within the BRUcure Taskforce have already obtained the label.
