PUERTO RICO LIFE SCIENCES COMMUNITY LAUNCHES AIR CARGO DATA AND ANALYTICS DASHBOARD


Forty companies from across the pharma air cargo supply chain have now joined the Community and are planning their next meeting in February to kick-start new initiatives driving quality at the hub

San Juan, Puerto Rico, Monday, 11th December: The Puerto Rico Life Sciences Air Cargo Community has launched a data dashboard, hosted on its new website, prlifesciencehub.org, as part of ongoing efforts to drive quality at the number one bioscience manufacturing hub in the U.S. by export volume.

The Community, launched in April 2023, now counts over 40 members from across the air cargo supply chain, including pharmaceutical and medical manufacturers, forwarders, airports, airlines, Customs, and representatives of the Puerto Rico Department of Economic Development and Commerce (DEDC), which is backing the initiative.

The customized dashboard, developed by Rotate, which specializes in air cargo data and decision-support software, aggregates a range of data sources to provide a comprehensive picture of the Puerto Rico (PR) air cargo market.

Analysis includes international air cargo imports and exports, as well as air trade demand between PR and the U.S., and air cargo and mail traffic by airline.

“The dashboard is an eye opener – data is an invaluable tool,” said Community Board member David Olan, Transportation Lead, Puerto Rico Operations, Johnson & Johnson.

“The Community must work together to solve challenges, consolidate flights, and find direct flights – this dashboard will enable us to do just that.”

“We will use this tool to manage risk, present information to our corporate offices, and drive quality in our Puerto Rico Life Sciences Hub.”

The dashboard and new web site are part of a series of Community initiatives, including a training program to help companies achieve the International Air Transport Association (IATA)’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators certification, and a survey of warehousing facilities and trucking services to populate a new online directory.

The Community is free-of-charge to join and open to any Puerto Rico-based company operating in the Life Sciences and, or, airfreight industry.

The fourth Community meeting will take place on 28th February, 2024.

Please contact hello@prlifescienceshub.org if you are interested in joining the meeting.
